Synopsis:

STAYING THE COURSE AS A CIO: HOW TO OVERCOME THE TRIALS AND CHALLENGES OF IT LEADERSHIP

The shelf-life of a Chief Information Officer can be shockingly short. Few survive in post for more than a few years.  More often each falls prey to insurmountable problems and their careers come to a sharp and ignominious end. In this book, a global CIO with over thirty years of experience in major corporations examines the main reasons why this happens. Readers will understand which types of issue can cause problems for an IT Leader and more importantly, they will learn strategies of how these problems can be minimized or even avoided.

IT is often seen a technical backwater, but it is a discipline which has the capability to add massive value to an organisation whether it is in the private or the public sector – provided of course it has the right leadership doing the right things.

Aspiring IT Leaders will need to deal with a common set of recurring trials and challenges. These include:

·         Overcoming the challenge of managing diverse and conflicting stakeholders

·         How to deal with large and complex projects

·         Making sense of software and how to handle the rapidly changing technology landscape

·         Knowing when  to outsource and how to get the best out of an outsourcing partner

·         Harnessing the intellectual power of consultants to help you meet your goals

·         And last but not least, how to develop a set of strategies that are aligned with your corporate goals and then make sure your resources are properly targetted so that the IT function generates maximum positive impact for the enterprise.

For IT professionals looking to fully integrate their function into the enterprise, 'Staying the Course as a CIO’ is a valuable source of practical advice, all based on real experience.

From the Back Cover:

Becoming a Chief Information Officer, a Senior Vice President or perhaps even a Chief Digital Officer in a large organisation is seen by many—quite rightly—to be the very pinnacle of achievement in the world of Information Technology. Today, an increasing number of IT leaders have become Board or Executive Team members in their companies and almost all of them exert high levels of power and influence. Unfortunately, however, the tenure of these corporate rainmakers is often shockingly short.

IT managers face many challenges which can prevent them from bringing the transformational power of IT to bear. Whether it is embedding the IT department in the corporate strategy, marketing its capabilities, managing projects and budgets, or maintaining relations with the rest of the company, nothing is easy. Failing in one or more of these areas can lead to a very short shelf life for any IT Leader. In Staying the Course as a CIO: How to overcome the trials and challenges of IT leadership, leading CIO Jonathan Mitchell examines the typical issues which can afflict the IT function, and offers practical advice on managing them successfully. IT managers and information officers will be given tools and strategies to enable themselves and their departments to realize their full potential.

Coverage includes:

  • Overcoming the challenge of managing diverse stakeholders with conflicting interests and requirements
  • How to deal with large and complex projects
  • Making sense of software and how to handle the rapidly changing technology landscape
  • Knowing when to outsource and how to get the best out of an outsourcing partner
  • Harnessing the intellectual power of consultants to help you meet your goals
  • Developing a set of strategies that are aligned with your corporate goals and then targeting your resources properly, so that the IT function generates maximum positive impact for the enterprise

For IT professionals looking to maximise their career potential, and fully integrate their function into the enterprise, Staying the Course as a CIO is a valuable source of practical advice, all based on the real experiences of a highly respected CIO.
