Students assess the info and IT demands of customers; examine the potential and perils of ubiquitous technology and information saturation; and weigh the tradeoffs of resource constraints, legal and policy mandates, and security in an open environment.
Students analyze critical internal (CTO, CFO, Commander, Agency Head, Operations Chiefs) and external (other governmental agencies, OMB, Congress, and the private sector) relationships that CIOs and their staffs need to foster in order to satisfy their mission-related, legal, organizational, and political mandates.
