Abstract
Understanding how Chief Information Officers (CIOs) may help businesses to achieve information technologies (IT) enabled organizational agility has become increasingly important in the digital era. Previous research has emphasized the role of CIO in leading business transformation (i.e., CIO demand-side leadership), but little research has been performed to examine how CIOs can leverage IT to enable business transformation and promote organizational agility. This study develops a theoretical model by integrating literatures on IS leadership and executive power. Specifically, we conjecture that CIO demand-side leadership can promote organizational agility, and top management team’s (TMT) strategic IS knowledge can enhance the positive impact of CIO demand-side leadership on organizational agility. Additionally, we emphasize that three sources of CIO executive power (structural power, expert power, and prestige power) are key factors that enhance CIO demand-side leadership. The empirical results of analyzing matched-pair CIO/TMT survey data from 321 organizations largely support our research hypotheses.
