IT Leaders that understand the power of modern technology approaches can not only deliver capabilities that contribute to business success, they can also help to shape the overall strategy of a business. Digital businesses need IT to be more than a support function, they need IT leaders that proactively identify opportunities for technology to remove constraints and enable business growth and evolution. However becoming an effective leader of a strategic part of a business is tough when you are new. There are the challenges with working with business peers, developing a strategy and having it signed off by the board even before you build and lead a team to deliver it. From your first 30 days, to presenting a vision to the board, the building of a team through to implementing your plan, this book supports your new c-level role with practical advice and frameworks for the various challenges that lay ahead of you. This book is ideal if you are moving from a technical role up into a leadership role, or if you are an existing IT leader that wants to apply the techniques of lean and agile development.
