I was very interested to read “CIO Master” because as a person involved in the financial world I have come to realize the importance of a Chief Information Officer. This book details the twelve Digital CIO personas which I found very enlightening and this is something that every CIO needs to learn. The CIO in today’s workplace should be a digital visionary. When Pearl Zhu states that “CIOs must go digital, like a pro, to run IT as an innovation engine” never were truer words written. A CIO needs to be a digital strategist because CIOs are now positioned closer to the top of the pyramid with regard to business strategy. I also appreciated the time the author takes in detailing the importance of digital transformation. Digital transformation represents the next stage of business maturity and every CIO must embrace the fact that digital is the age of explosive information, hyper connectivity and fierce competition. This book is very enlightening regarding the importance of the CIO as a change agent. CIOs need to be change agents in leading the digital journey of a business and are accountable for a critical part of the business that is constantly changing & evolving. One of more important roles of a CIO which I never gave much thought about was the role of being a talent master. CIOs need to be able to find the right people through what they think and how they act. The right mindset is the utmost quality for being a right fit. I learned so much from this book. CIO master is a wealth of IT knowledge and a must read for every CIO! I highly recommend this incredible book.

“CIO Master” is a boiled down version of Pearl Zhu’s “Thinkingaire” to some extent, and while the first book is directed to all kinds of management personnel across the digital marketplace CIO master is aimed specifically at what Pearl characterizes as the Chief Innovation Officer, rather than the more traditional Chief Information Officer. As before, Pearl’s approach is to push the entire enterprise out of the industrial era and into the digital. But not at the cost of sacrificing the strengths that the earlier approaches can still contribute. Her perspective is all about taking the best from both worlds, doing away with the kind of hierarchical thinking and dedication to specialized silos that is so familiar in the industrial workplace and which often fails now in answering the challenges of the emerging digital era. Pearl brings the focus back to considering each individual’s strengths and taking care that every member of every team is being challenged to make their own personal contribution. It’s been a pleasure to work with Pearl and help her make her very innovative contribution more accessible. Even though digital business is not exactly what I’m doing, there are a lot of insights in her work that have broader applications. Her knowledge of the management challenges of the digital era is encyclopedic and the respect that she shows for a holistic perspective on the challenges facing all of our cultures lays bare the kind of overarching impact the activities of humanity have on the natural world, as well as the digital.
