From the Inside Flap:

Unlike the CIOs of the recent decade, the modern CIO must takean active hand in developing and guiding the multiple processesrequired to achieve the company's strategic goals. This representsa sharp break with the past, when the primary responsibility of ITwas serving internal customers and responding to the expressedneeds of business units operating within the traditional boundariesof the enterprise.

The Transformational CIO serves as a helpful guide for CIOs, ITleaders, and IT suppliers, covering many of the critical topicsthat concern IT executives struggling to manage successfully intoday's rapidly changing markets. It introduces Muller's four-stepmodel—define, build, lead, and change—revealing a simple,practical framework for developing transformational projects,rolling them out smoothly, and making them operational within theaccelerated time frames that have become the norm in businesstoday.

Intelligent and visionary, The Transformational CIO exploresreal-world situations in which IT leaders successfully managed thetypes of challenges and issues that, sooner or later, you arelikely to confront in your career, with invaluable guidance on:

  • Partnering with your business

  • How to think like a CEO

  • Your first 30 days on the job—what you need to do

  • How to prepare for the next steps on your career path

  • Attracting and keeping superior talent

  • Enriching customer experience

In this truly quantum universe, the CIO's portfolio ofresponsibilities includes hundreds of duties. Some of these dutiesare abstract, some are concrete; some are obvious, others aresubtle. The right book for today's CIO, The Transformational CIOhelps you brace yourself for the coming changes and dealsuccessfully with the challenges ahead.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Transformational CIO

"The Transformational CIO presents what may be the first (andonly) comprehensive view of the multiple dimensions of challengesthat CIOs are facing. It goes beyond just the technical 'flavor ofthe day' (e.g., cloud computing) and integrates a complete view ofbusiness, cultural, and leadership factors that must be considered.It goes further than that as a guide, a trip planner, and perhaps abasic reference for success in the complex times to come."
—Howard Rubin, founder, Rubin Worldwide

"Today's CIOs are under intense pressure to generate results forthe business. This book paints a clear picture of how CIOs mustoperate to achieve success in a highly competitive world."
—Mark Polansky, Senior Client Partner and Managing Director,Information Technology Officers Practice, Korn/FerryInternational

"This book will definitely help CIOs navigate through theturbulence of today's business environment. The pace of change hasaccelerated dramatically, and CIOs really have to stay ahead of thecurve if they want to succeed."
—Greg Fell, Vice President and CIO, Terex Corporation

"I am always energized to talk with, and attend events organizedby Hunter Muller. I think Hunter has developed a unique brand ofthought leadership around the constantly evolving role of the CIO.This book will crystallize many of the ideas that Hunter has beensharing with my peers and myself for the last few years."
—Jon Harding, CIO, Conair Corporation
