The Innovative CIO: How IT Leaders Can Drive Business Transformation

BY ANDI MANN, GEORGE WATT AND PETER MATTHEWS

Abstract

The Innovative CIO explores the plight of the position of CIO and its waning influence in the business world, showing how the modern CIO can reassert the operational and strategic importance of technology to the enterprise and reintegrate it with every department and level of the business from boardroom to mailroom. The authors, top international IT strategists and innovators, quantify the benefits and risks of IT innovation, survey and rank the myriad innovation opportunities from mature, new and emerging technologies and identify the organizational structures and processes that have been proven to deliver ongoing innovation.

Buttressing their brief with dozens of case studies and specific examples, The Innovative CIO shows you how to:

  • Take advantage of the IT and business innovation opportunities created by new and emerging technologies
  • Shift IT innovation from afterthought to prime mover in strategic business planning
  • Inject IT into the dynamic core of your organization’s culture, training, structure, practice and policy
