The CIO as Ball Coach!

Each player must be a top performer, regardless of his/her position, and be ready to fill-in other positions if needed. Every team member must love the sport and be committed to keeping the ball in play, doing whatever is necessary to win. How well are today’s IT leaders playing coach? What additional gamesmanship can an IT leader pick up, to better play the increasingly complex business/IT ball game?
