A consultative role, the CSO is part-leader, part-doer, with the responsibility of ensuring that execution of the strategy supports all strategic elements. This unique mastery is the result of a multitude of different operating experiences and involves being both a creative thinker and influential collaborator. CSOs are often executives who have worn many hats at a variety of companies or agencies before taking on the responsibilities and tasks that come with the job title.
