While IT leaders at U.S. companies say they are achieving business integration and corporate outsourcing goals, they want more decision-making responsibility and involvement in strategy development, according to a recent Harvey Nash survey. And the absence of strategic authority translates into a willingness to seek other roles at other companies (often despite significant increases in compensation and general job satisfaction).
54 percent of IT leaders who would entertain a call from a corporate headhunter
17 percent who say they would not consider a new position
10 percent who are actively seeking and applying for new job
18 percent who are selectively applying for jobs
22 percent who want "greater involvement in business strategy"
13 percent who want "expanded decision-making capabilities"
