From the Author:

I was selected as the CTO for a corporate division back when I barely knew what the title meant. I began studying the many CTO's who were part of the computer and dot.com companies in Silicon Valley. I arranged to meet and interview CTO's at conferences. I collected literally every paper on the subject that had been published in management and technology journals. As I boiled all of this information in my brain, a picture or a map of what a CTO is and what a CTO should do for a company began to form.

In this book, I share what I have learned from other people, the published literature, and my own experiences as a CTO in technology companies, government offices, and healthcare organizations. The principles, responsibilities, and practices of the CTO vary depending upon what kind of organization they work for.

I am indebted to the many brilliant, hard working, and effective people who shared their experiences, wisdom, and principles to make this book possible.
