From the Inside Flap:

With technology changing at an extraordinarily rapid pace, the expectation for a CIO to operate in a dynamic business environment is more pressing than ever. Today's CIO must fight a "two-front war," keeping technology operational and secure, while at the same time attempting to bring strategic advantage for the business.

Providing a comparative analysis of case studies of organizations with CIOs strategically employing technology integration as a business driver, Strategic IT: Best Practices for Managers and Executives is a helpful guide for CIOs, IT leaders, and IT suppliers to define how their organizations need to respond to the challenges posed by technology. It reveals the best practices you can implement to sustain strategic advocacy and success at the CIO level.

With case studies of CIOs from world-class organizations—including Procter & Gamble, Covance, Cushman & Wakefield, Merck, and Prudential—sharing their strategies for success, Strategic IT provides a framework for engaging in strategic advocacy, linking strategic learning practices with politically savvy influencing practices in organizations. The book also provides invaluable guidance on:

  • Business integration
  • The consumerization of technology and the next paradigm shift
  • The role of CIO in the organizational context
  • IT drivers and supporters
  • The technology business cycle
  • The strategic advocacy mindset
  • Political savvy as the underpinning of effective strategic advocacy
  • Patterns of a strategically effective CIO

Discover best practices to redefine your role as CIO from a technology-focused expert to a strategic orientation that adds value to your business with Strategic IT.
