Product description


a great read. … really does a thorough job covering what it means to be an effective CIO in plain terms. Brown and Yarberry include in The Effective CIO numerous visuals to support their key concepts which they further strengthen with practical examples I am sure every CIO can understand. … contains eight resource Appendices which provide very useful examples that can be adapted for use in nearly every shop. Most of the appendices deal with areas of risk management including IT risk assessment, IT key controls, Policy examples, and due diligence for M&A. Overall, I really enjoyed the book. I found that I agreed with what the authors chose as being important to CIO effectiveness and the relative emphasis given to the different elements. I thought they spent enough time on their topics while keeping things moving along at a good pace which is always important. … What I really appreciated more than anything in The Effective CIO was the attention given to Enterprise Architecture. Enterprise Architecture was presented as an integral part of IT strategy and included a solid explanation for its development out of business architecture. … With so much attention n the CIO profession being paid to the role of the CIO and being a more strategic CIO, The Effective CIO is a great book for anyone dealing with these concerns.
―The Higher ED CEO, February 2012
