If one of your New Year's resolutions was to sharpen your business and leadership skills or to read more books, CIO Insight's winter book guide can help you on both fronts. This collection of titles explores a broad range of key issues facing CIOs today, examining leadership trends, business agility, corporate and executive transparency and the ever-present mandate to innovate. If you add these to your "must read" list, you can find out why C-Suite executives have less influence than they like to think they have, or how you can use smarter social-media strategies to elevate your "e-profile". Others discuss ways to maximize the effectiveness of today's business tools and how to manage projects from an enterprise perspective. Each offers insights and information that can be of value to the ambitious technology leader. For more information about each book included here, click on the link above the slide.
