About the Book
The Agile CIO is currently the only book of its kind on the market. It's an in-depth guide for modern CIOs who are responsible for the ever-expanding reach of technology within their organizations, while simultaneously responding to increasing market pressures and regulatory requirements.
The author draws on over 25 years of experience in CIO advisory, IT governance, information security, software development, and IT operations to showcase both challenges and solutions faced by today's CIOs. Drawing on best practices he's developed for numerous startups and Fortune 500 companies, Todd Jacobs explains how modern principles and values from the agile movement can be applied to the pivotal role of Chief Information Officer.
