From the Inside Flap:

We are in an era of extreme dynamism and unprecedented innovation that requires a new and higher level of IT leadership. Today's enterprises demand that IT deliver real business value and contribute significantly to revenue growth in ultra-competitive markets.

The Big Shift in IT Leadership gives CIOs a proven framework for developing the leadership skills needed in an era of high volatility, rapid transformation, and remarkable growth. Written by Hunter Muller—a noted expert on CIO leadership—this important guide offers an actionable blueprint for executing the leadership strategies that have proven to work in thriving organizations. The author reveals why today's most successful CIOs are vital multi-role corporate suite players, possess stellar communication skills, create and sustain crucial partnerships across the C-suite, and win the war for talent by attracting, hiring, and retaining the best and the brightest in the IT industry.

Written in accessible and easy-to-understand language, The Big Shift in IT Leadership is filled with real-world stories and illustrative anecdotes that have been culled from the author's exclusive interviews with visionary thought leaders from major organizations worldwide. Muller's down-to-earth perspective, drawn from the experiences of successful CIOs, helps to put these winning leadership techniques to work right away.

The Big Shift in IT Leadership offers vital insights into the expanding role of the CIO. This essential guide reveals why the big shift in IT is moving from inward-facing IT to outward-facing IT and shows how CIOs can change their focus from internal customers to external customers. As the author explains, savvy CIOs assume a "cloud first" mentality and know that it is critical for IT to shift its thinking from providing service to providing excellent value.

If they are to stay in the game, today's CIOs need to step up and raise the bar to meet the challenges of the "big shift." The Big Shift in IT Leadership is a practical handbook for helping them succeed in that endeavor.
