Achieving Success as a CTO is an authoritative, insider s perspective on the personal and professional qualities and characteristics imperative to CTO success, as well as the key strategies and tactics technology executives employ to put those qualities to use. Featuring chief technology officers representing some of the top companies in the nation, this book provides best practices for CTOs who are looking to bring their leadership skills to the next level. From motivating the team to capitalizing on individual employee strengths to creating a positive and productive environment in which to work, these authors explain what it takes to manage the technology team for optimum IT success. This book provides valuable insight for those needing to learn how to focus on high-level business goals while not getting distracted by the minutia of technology, including tips for securing funding for projects by achieving executive buy-in. The different niches presented and the breadth of perspectives represented enable readers to get inside some of the leading technology minds of today, as these insiders offer up their thoughts around the keys to coming out on top as a CTO.

Inside the Minds provides readers with proven business intelligence from C-Level executives (Chairman, CEO, CFO, CMO, Partner) from the world s most respected companies nationwide, rather than third-party accounts from unknown authors and analysts. Each chapter is comparable to an essay/thought leadership piece and is a future-oriented look at where an industry, profession or topic is headed and the most important issues for the future. Through an exhaustive selection process, each author was hand-picked by the Inside the Minds editorial board to author a chapter for this book.
