Re: CDO turf
@Ashish: So glad you found it useful. I have learned so  much from reading this book, and also it has helped me understand how most corporate environments are so heavily tilted toward extroverts as to be damaging. Even something as basic as office design really does not allow for the introvert to be truly productive at work. I hope this can be the start of some new thinking about how corporations accommodate different kinds of people.

Re: CDO turf
@WaqasAtlaf: And it may well turn out that this is a position that is only necessary for a certain number of years as companies make the transition into being truly digital from end to end. There's a lot of importance to the person who can be the liaison to bring disparate groups together in an organization to mold the future strategy, whatever that person's title  may be.

Re: CDO turf
@SaneIT: Can we clone you? Sersiously, so few managers have such an enlightened, ego-less view of their roles. Your personal insights on this topic can be put into practice at any level of one's career. Let me ask: Did you learn this from a mentor or guide, or has this always been your personal philosophy since you began your career?

Re: CDO turf
@tjgkg: Fair enough, though I think anyone who tried to fill Jobs' shoes would have faced the same level of scrutiny and criticism, even if they were a more dynamic personality. Jobs left a huge void and I'm challenged to think of any exec who could fill it. Maybe Elon Musk?

Re: CDO turf
I think we need to look from the point... finding, groming and ability of keeping talents in the Co.... as Education and right credentials not always equal right person for a job... how I see it...

Re: CDO turf
interesting, but in my books other factors in play should not be overlooked... as a lot of the factors depends on the corp. envr. and office politics in play...

Re: CDO turf
let agree to disagree... as simple solution is not always right fit... it depends on the problem... or how complex is the problem at hand...
