Keep A Futuristic Approach
CIOs should line up their stratagems and approach, keeping the future in mind. They should believe in their ideas and their execution process as they are responsible to keep the team aligned with the vision.
Do Your Homework

This requires meticulous meetings, discussions, and regular reflection on the progress.

In such a situation, it is important to keep pushing forward, taking one day at a time, and motivating the team throughout the process.
