Old world CIOs focus on the support of the business. In today’s digital landscape, effective CIOs are taking a lead role at the executive team table and need to be integrated into the goals of marketing, finance, legal, sales and human resources. IT is no longer about support…it IS the business. And Martha instructs CIOs how to be the business in her new book, Be The Business – CIOs in the New Era of IT.
Martha has interviewed 40 Top CIOs to offer the insight on how technology has shifted to be the crux of every business function and how a CIO is not an idea generator on how to use IT to ensure corporate goals are realized. She capitalizes on her decades of executive recruiting and journalism expertise to outline what high performing CIOs are doing to be attractive to the top employers around the globe.
I highly recommend this book for any CIO with experience looking to up their game or aspiring CIOs who want the short cut to advancing their career.
