The CIO Paradox

I've written quite a bit about various topics related to the role and function of the CIO.  Recently, a good friend of mine named Martha Heller brought a marvelous book to market called, aptly, "The CIO Paradox".  If ever there was an expert on the CIO role it would be Martha.  She has worked with CIO magazine in a number of senior positions for over a decade and has written extensively on technology trends and applications.  She also runs her own search firm, "Heller Search Associates, LLC", where she recruits senior technologists into key positions.

The "CIO Paradox" is a beautiful piece of literature and combines Martha's many years of work with CIOs across just about every industry.  She combines information gleaned from interviews,  case studies, and insider information to discuss what it is really like to be a CIO.

When I say in my blogs that the CIO position is one of the most influential, yet difficult positions to hold within a company her book tells you specifically why.  Martha combines her knowledge with research conducted over 10 years to give what I believe is one of the most insightful looks into the CIO role ever written.

It is a must read not only for what it can teach you about the CIO but because its style will draw you in and engage your heart AND mind.  Please do like me and check it out.
