In this study, we examine the relationship between CIO involvement in strategy formulation and how IT is perceived within the organization. We use the top management team literature to theorize that the higher the level of CIO strategic involvement the more likely the firm is to view IT as strategically important and we support these results with a sample of Fortune 500 firms. These findings have significant implications as many see the CIO’s role in the organization by many as a key factor in the ability of a firm to benefit strategically from IT.
