Recently, we took you directly inside the heads of some of the top CIOs in the world with the book, "CIOs At Work" (Apress/Available now). Apress has followed up with insight from some of your C-Suite colleagues with "CTOs At Work" (Available now), which presents in-depth conversations with selected CTOs. Featured organizations include SAIC, CA Technologies, Johns Hopkins University, National Public Radio and Gartner. Authors Scott Donaldson, Stanley Siegel, Gary Donaldson interview these leaders to reveal not only technical insights, but management strategies that can benefit any senior tech executive. "There is no one way to define the CTO role," they write. "They are managers, researchers, visionaries, entrepreneurs, developers, deployers, project leaders, advisors, and administrators all rolled into one. However, there are similarities and overlaps among these characteristics; the primary one being that they are innovators who look to meet the needs of their customers through the use of the technologies they control."
