This book chapter introduces you to the challenges faced by a first-year CIO, from anticipating emerging technologies to setting realistic goals for IT.

Becoming an effective IT manager presents a host of challenges — from anticipating emerging technology to managing relationships with vendors, employees, and other managers. A good IT manager must also be a strong business leader.

This book, "The Adventures of an IT Leader," invites you to accompany new CIO Jim Barton to better understand the role of IT in your organization. You'll see Jim struggle through a challenging first year, handling (and fumbling) situations that, although fictional, are based on true events.
