From the Back Cover:

Praise for THE PRACTICAL CIO

"The insights and stories collected in this book are invaluable. It is filled with useful advice that will help CIOs respond successfully to the challenges and opportunities of rapidly changing global markets. The Practical CIO is pure gold."
Eric Chow, CIO Asia, Standard Chartered Bank

"José is one of a handful of global CIOs who genuinely understand the crucial need for developing formal IT strategies and managing IT investments in ways that make sense for the business. Many CIOs still focus on the specific needs of IT and lose sight of the big picture. José knows from firsthand experience that successful CIOs leverage the power of IT to support the business and drive its growth."
Beth Kirkpatrick, former vice president, EDS Europe

"This book shows CIOs how to act like CEOs. In today's ultracompetitive markets, that kind of guidance is priceless."
Mindy Cunningham, Regional Managing Director, Resources Global Professionals

"I have known José Carlos Eiras for more than three decades, and in my opinion, his combination of vision and intelligence is truly unique. Senior executives responsible for managing information technology investments will find this book extremely useful. I highly recommend this book."
Michael Moran, former chief financial officer, Kibon, Brazil

"José is smart, skilled, and savvy. Anyone with a stake in the IT industry will learn valuable lessons from this excellent new book."
Mike Barlow, coauthor of Partnering with the CIO

If it looks like IT, feels like IT, and smells like IT, then it is IT ... and you're responsible for it

Never before have CIOs faced the kind of tough decisions they are being forced to make as the economy undergoes incredibly rapid shifts. The ultimate road map to a "new normal," The Practical CIO: A Common Sense Guide for Successful IT Leadership is your common sense guide for successful IT leadership, delivering exactly the kind of hard-nosed, actionable advice that will keep your career on an upward path.

From the Inside Flap:

THE PRACTICAL CIO

A Common Sense Guide for Successful IT Leadership

As the global economy evolves and transforms, IT executives face dilemmas of truly mythic proportions. Despite understandable feelings of apprehension, you must still choose your destiny. Do you hunker down and wait timidly for fate, or do you seize the moment and act like a hero?

Guiding you in redefining your role as a chief information officer in a global marketplace, The Practical CIO: A Common Sense Guide for Successful IT Leadership tells it like it is. Here you will find the new modes of thinking and novel approaches necessary to increase your chances of surviving through the turbulence and uncertainty of a rapidly changing economy.

This is a unique book, superbly written by a seasoned executive leader who has "been there, done that" in positions of authority all over the world. Filled with real-world stories of success and failure, this timely book provides crucial advice on:

  • Attracting, nurturing, promoting, motivating, and preserving talent
  • Proactively establishing goals for IT
  • Writing, sharing, and using your IT strategy
  • Keeping your vendors accountable
  • Doing your homework before negotiating
  • Managing contracts—not just signing them
  • Working with the business
  • Managing and marketing the IT brand
  • Building and managing relationships up, down, and sideways across the enterprise and beyond its traditional boundaries
  • Acting like a CEO

Unlike earlier generations of CIOs, today's IT executives are expected to help the enterprise achieve its business goals. This represents a fundamental shift in thinking and poses a monumental test for the modern CIO. Savvy—and yes, practical— The Practical CIO helps you brace yourself for the coming changes and deal successfully with the challenges ahead of you.
