The top 5 seemed pretty generic and could be applied to any senior manager.
Any senior manager needs to be able to communicate well to area specialists as well as non-specialists (For example: A CFO needs to be able to communicate to a financial expert as well as non-finance people).
Any senior manager needs a strong technical (or financial, or operational) knowledge.
I would like to see qualities listed that are particular to the CIO; or are great leadership qualities inherently generic?
