Who else reports to this CIO/Owner other than your boss?
How many report to your boss?
My boss, the Head of Technology... should really be the 'Head of Development'. But, when the person who did my job before me left, the job was moved to report to the 'Head of Technology' rather than the MD (the top). The role I do previously reported to the MD. Numbers wise, he has 9 people reporting to him, including me.
The MD? is the what you called the CIO/Owner ealier?
so your boss is called the Head of Technology? isn't that what CIO is? Actually, perhaps it's not - that would be COO who Scott said would possibly be over CTO and CIO.
Yes, my boss = Head of Technology. His boss, Managing Director. The MD is the top.
What's the difference between these positions? HoT and MD?
MD is top. So, everything like the direction of the company etc will go from him. He will be able to tell the Head of Sales where to focus. He will be able to tell the Head of Technology where to focus. He reports to the board/owners etc...
Typically, the MD will tell the Head of Technology to focus on what the Head of Technology deems fit to focus on. Same for sales etc. But overall responsibility of the company is on the MD.
