Publisher's Summary

Be the most effective CIO you can be - by learning from the best in the business

Today's Chief Information Officers must be an entirely new breed of technology leader. With ever-changing demands from the business, and in an increasingly technology-centric business environment, CIOs must find game-changing innovations and process improvements that make a real impact on the bottom line. Business executives need their CIOs to be real partners - speaking the language of the business and donning their strategist caps - not just commodity managers. Those IT leaders who fail to break out of the order-taker, utility manager mold will, simply put, be looking for a new job.

In Confessions of a Successful CIO: How the Best CIOs Tackle Their Toughest Business Challenges, current and future CIOs will gain invaluable perspectives from the stories of today's best IT leaders. These acclaimed leaders - each profiled in their own chapter - explain the toughest business decision they had to make, and how the outcome influenced and impacted their leadership style. These in-depth anecdotes take the listener inside some of the most challenging business climates imaginable and chronicle how these elite CIOs made the decisions that mattered.

  • Read detailed case studies of how some of the best CIOs have handled their most challenging business problems
  • Learn how the best CIOs anticipate changes to their business and respond - before the business comes knocking
  • Explore how these top-flight CIOs make critical decisions around strategy and IT to not only benefit their companies, but in some cases, to save them from becoming obsolete
  • Analyze their perspectives on managing people, crises and balancing the risks and rewards of their "bet the farm" strategies

Confessions of a Successful CIO is the new playbook for learning how to take risks, respond to crises, and create more value from IT. Each chapter presents a different challenge, giving present-day and future IT leaders the chance to examine, analyze, and learn so that they can be just as successful as the CIOs they're hearing about.
