After our virtual roundtable, I did a post wrap up video interview with John.  We talked for a few minutes about:

1. The CIO facing a new reality of Leadership; a role that is less technical and more about being a Chief Strategy Officer.
2. We discussed the top 2 questions CIOs need to ask their peers on the Executive Team.
3. We talked about having your tactical house in order first and then building the credibility necessary to have a Strategy discussion.

Enjoy the video and please comment below.

Join John Hughes, former VP of IT Strategy of Cendant, as he co-hosts the CIO Executive Series Virtual Roundtable on December 15th from 10-11AM. John will discuss his new book Haunting the CEO and share his thoughts on the following.

  • What will be the role of the CIO over the next 5 years?
  • Are CIOs working themselves out of jobs?
  • CIOs need the right IT management team to survive.
  • Relevant CIOs need to be strategic business leaders not vendor managers.
  • CIOs must learn the language of a leader – not geek-speak, but business-speak.
  • The CEO and CIO dance – who leads?
  • Is business IT alignment becoming extinct?
  • CIOs must become strategic business leaders to survive.

Some recent CIO book reviews include:

“Haunting the CEO is a new spin on the classic business book, packaging important life lessons for today’s CIO into a first-person novel. Highly recommended!” ~ Gregory R. Simpson, CTO, GE

“Haunting the CEO is a book for new and seasoned CIOs. There are many real-life examples that can be applied quickly. In addition, it provides a roadmap for transforming the organization to help IT drive strategic growth and innovation.” ~ Raj Rawal, Senior VP and CIO, Burger King Corp.
