"While most professions have a distinct road map to the top,there is no standard career path to becoming a CIO. Smith addressesthis unique challenge and provides aspiring CIOs withencouragement, advice, and essential skills based on years of hisown and other CIOs' cumulative experience -- an important effortfor the profession that Smith's fellow members in the CIO ExecutiveCouncil embrace and applaud."

"Teaching students what a CIO really does has been tough. We'vehad to choose between anecdotal treatments based on trade pressarticles and integrated academic frameworks that offer little inthe way of lived experiences. Greg's book fixes that. By organizinginterviews with leading technology executives, trade press reports,and his own experiences as a CIO, he provides an organized andcomprehensive view of the job and its important role in modernorganizations."
