This I can agree with, both from the view of an employee and as a
consultant, as I have been both. I quite often see that the head of IS
is not a corporate officer and doesn't even attend the high level staff
meetings. Rather they get the corporate strategy secondhand through
the CFO, controller or head the head of HR.
