This is an excellent, MUST READ, article from the Harvard Business Review.

The New CTO: Chief Transformation Officer – Daniel Burrus – Harvard Business Review.

As a former specialist in business transformation, I very much endorse the article. In my judgement, effective transformation has often been curtailed by technology having too much power in the board room.

I wonder if this article will prompt consultants and executive interim managers to quickly sprinkle their CV with the CTrO acronym? I predict a new trend!

I am proud to have been a successful executive interim director in the golden age of the industry before the imposters arrived.

In case you are interested here are the links to some of my earlier blogs on executive interim management which had a large number of hits:
