Leadership-logoAs part of Computing's Tomorrow's IT Leaders campaign, we talk to the UK's top chief information officers (CIOs) to find out their views on the role of IT leaders and how this will change in the post-recessionary world.

In this video Martin Schofield, retail operations director at Harvey Nichols, talks to Computing senior reporter Angelica Mari, Colin Beveridge, chairman of the Better Practice Forum and David Roberts, chief executive of blue-chip user group The Corporate IT Forum, about his views on the future of IT leadership.

Schofield maintains that the IT department is an anachronism and future IT leaders will have to be business all-rounders - Schofield himself balances responsibility for IT, logistics and store operations.
