Yet IT executives are besieged by a host of contradictions: Bad technology can bring a company to its knees, but corporate boards rarely employ CIOs; CIOs must keep costs down at the very same time that they drive innovation. CIOs are focused on the future, while they are tethered by technology decisions made in the past.
These contradictions form what Martha Heller calls The CIO Paradox, a set of conflicting forces that are deeply embedded in governance, staffing, executive expectations, and even corporate culture. Heller, who has spent more than 12 years working with the CIO community, offers guidance to CIOs on how to attack, reverse, or neutralize the paradoxical elements of the CIO role. Through interviews with a wide array of successful CIOs, The CIO Paradox helps listeners level the playing field for IT success and get one step closer to bringing maximum value to their companies.

Solid insight into what it takes to be a great CIO
Would you listen to The CIO Paradox again? Why?
The story was great. However, the narration by Sean Pratt with his excessively long pregnant pauses between each and every sentence almost made me stop listening. If the book was not as great as it was I really would have stopped. Had to move it to 2X speed just to get his pauses to seem normal. I am literally going to check who is reading the book from now on to avoid this if possible.
