Technology Leaders Index Guidelines

Take our survey now!

By Edward Qualtrough

The Technology Leaders Index is a new guide to the digital, IT and technology capabilities of organisations and the CIOs and CTOs leading those functions.

An initiative by CBR and NS Tech and supported by research from data analytics and consulting company GlobalData, the Technology Leaders Index will recognise the pacesetters from the private, public and non-profit sectors, and how they are using technology innovations to transform their businesses.

The first stage of the Technology Leaders Index looking at innovative technology projects and initiatives will be published in August 2020.

To take part simply complete our SHORT SURVEY highlighting your recent standout technology projects.

Why take part

Recognition in the Technology Leaders Index will show the impact technology teams and their CIOs are having on their businesses and sectors.

Organisations, teams and leaders will be recognised for technology innovation projects and IT initiatives, strategic partnering with technology vendors and suppliers and their approaches to sustainability and diversity.

The Technology Leaders Index will also use GlobalData‘s extensive research and data sets to assess how businesses are approaching the most important technology ‘Themes’ that are driving innovation and disruption. This data spans patents, deals, partnerships and recruitment moves.

How to take part

To take part simply complete our SHORT SURVEY highlighting your recent standout technology projects. The survey is focused on gathering data about your company’s recent standout technology projects and initiatives.

We strongly suggest that you prepare your answers first before taking the survey. You can download a copy of the survey HERE.

The more information you provide the more detailed our coverage of your work can be and the easier it is for us to make assessments.

The survey is made up of TWO parts:

A few basic details about you and your role

2. Case studies
Here you can provide details of the projects or initiatives (up to THREE) you wish to highlight.

Each case study should include:

Following the completion of the survey process we will also be conducting select interviews with key figures in the tech sector to learn more about their initiatives and broader technology setup.
