New CIO Leader: Setting the Agenda and Delivering Results


New CIO Leader: Setting the Agenda and Delivering Results Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two converging factors--the ubiquitous presence of technology in organizations and the recent technology downturn--have brought chief information officers (CIOs) to a critical breaking point. They can seize the moment to leverage their expertise into a larger and more strategic role than ever before, or they can allow themselves to be relegated to the sideline function of "chief technology mechanic." Drawing from exclusive research conducted by Gartner, Inc., with thousands of companies and CIOs, Marianne Broadbent and Ellen Kitzis reveal exactly what CIOs must do now to solidify their credibility with the executive team and bridge the chasm that currently separates business and IT strategy.

The New CIO Leader outlines the agenda CIOs need to integrate business and IT assets in a way that moves corporate strategy forward--whether a firm is floundering, successfully competing, or leading its industry. Mandatory reading for CIOs in every firm, The New CIO Leader spells out how information systems can deliver results that matter--and how CIOs can become the enterprise leaders they should be.

Book News Annotation:

Broadbent (Melbourne Business School) and Kitzis are with Gartner, Inc., a U.S.-based provider of research and analysis on the global IT industry serving some 10,000 clients with 75 locations worldwide. Written for senior level executives responsible for identifying information and technology needs and delivering services to meet those needs, their text is for those who want to go beyond a role as a "chief technology mechanic" to become the new CIO leader. Based on research conducted by Gartner with thousands of companies and CIOs, the authors identify ten new priorities for the new CIO leader, including differentiating between leadership and management, five demand-side aspects of leadership, and four supply-side priorities and roles.
