  1. Very insightful article by perhaps the leading CIO recruiter in the UK. Great read.

  2. These are some very insightful observations. These align with one of my biggest observations about leadership that spans most CXO roles; the ability to understand and manage both daily operations and to lead transformation initiatives. These are different competencies, and the needs vary by organization and time.
