Taking the Reins as CIO: A Blueprint for Leadership Transitions

An executive’s transition into any leadership role can be a challenge. These transitions are not always smooth, and the negative consequences can be great. The role of Chief Information Officer (CIO) has undergone significant evolution over the years, but it still holds a sense of profound ambiguity. Despite the transformation of information and technology from a peripheral aspect of organizations to a core driver of innovation and competitive advantage, the ambiguity surrounding the role of Chief Information Officers persists. Authors Tony Gerth and Joe Peppard assist newly appointed CIOs in confidently “taking charge” by guiding them through the process of learning and empowering them to take effective action until they achieve a mastery level that ensures their effectiveness in the role.

Taking the Reins provides keen insights into the challenges faced by today’s CIOs while transitioning into a new role, and enlightens readers on how to navigate the organizational environment in order to implement necessary changes. With plenty of practical tools and insights, it will help you to:

• Decide how best to approach the job

• Prioritize the first areas of the business you should attend to

• Draw up your goals for the first few weeks and months into the role.

Based on insights gathered from over 200 interviews with CIOs, CxOs, and recruiters, this book empowers readers to make informed decisions about delaying certain choices. It provides invaluable guidance on assuming the role of a business executive with a particular focus on information and technology, presenting ten key prescriptions for achieving optimal success in this position.
