摘要: 现有研究强调数字化创新对企业的战略价值,但学术界对企业如何进行数字化创新的认识却较为有限。借鉴变革型领导理论,本文提出CIO需求方领导力正向影响企业数字化创新水平,同时,CIO结构权力可以增强CIO需求方领导力与企业数字化创新水平的正向关系。此外,从CIO自身技能方面识别出CIO需求方领导力的三个重要前因:战略IT知识、政治悟性以及网络能力。通过采集179份CIO-TMT的企业配对问卷数据进行实证分析,实证结果较好地支持了研究假设。本文提出的假设模型为企业发挥CIO在推进数字化创新中的主导作用提供了理论基础和实践启示。

Abstract: Despite the large amount of benefits of digital innovation to contemporary firms, scholarly insight about how CIO may lead digital innovation within an organization is limited. Drawing upon transformational leadership theory, the study examines how CIOs could lead their enterprises' digital innovation initiatives. We propose that it is the CIO demand-side leadership that directly influences the level of enterprises' digital innovation. Furthermore, CIO's structural power could positively moderate the impact of CIO demand-side leadership on enterprises' digital innovation. In addition, we identify three enabling forces of CIO demand-side leadership:1) IT-related strategic knowledge, 2) political savvy, and 3) networking ability. The research hypotheses are supported by matched-pair data collected from senior business and IT executives of 179 organizations. The findings of the study suggest that the CIO demand-side leadership offers a powerful concept to examine CIO's strategic impacts in the digital era.

Key words: CIO, demand-side leadership, transformational leadership, digital innovation, leadership skills
