Should There be an IT Leadership Maturity Model?

Should There be an IT Leadership Maturity Model?

If there are maturity models for the technology paradigms IT leaders adopt, wouldn’t it be possible to develop a maturity model for IT Leadership as well? That is, an IT Leadership maturity model that would help CIOs and their lieutenants to measure their current state and chart a path forward for them to improve and become more successful and effective. What would such a maturity model look like? How realistic is it to expect humans to follow a structured path like a maturity model, in order to acquire the competencies and experience suggested by such models? Could a “one size fits all” standard maturity model be created?
