A wizard wears a pointy hat. A clown has a red nose. And then we have the classic definition of obscenity, given to us by Justice Stewart who proclaimed from the Supreme Court bench: "I know it when I see it."
Can this principle be applied to the definition of a CIO?
Some have applied a more scientific/structured way to get to the key capabilities of a CIO. Prof. Peter Gottschalk is one of them. He has come up with a list of CIO capabilities.
Attached is Prof. Gottschalk's classic paper on the topic. (But my favorite book is the one that teaches children that anyone with a pointy hat is not a magician!)

P.S: What role does destiny play in the profession you chose? Well, if your name is "got chalk" then what are the odds that you will become a teacher?
