From the Publisher:
The book will focus on the qualities required to transform an organization through the lens of the CIO. It will provide practical advice on how to address key issues as well as create a context for the type of leadership qualities required to not only transform an IT organization but more importantly to broaden the impact of this transformation to touch every aspect of the corporation. It will provide an understanding of the differences between leadership and management and the need for effectiveness in both disciplines. I then focus on the creation and evangelism of a comprehensive vision which will allow all key stakeholders to align behind a common purpose. I then focus on the true purpose of IT – to be a business enabler and a differentiator. I spend a fair amount of time focusing on what it means to drive business value and act as a business leader as opposed to a technology executive. Tentative Chapter Contents:
