What others are saying about Amplify Your Value: 

“The CIO’s role has never been more strategic. But succeeding in today’s agile and speed-is-value market demands more than the IT strategies of the past — it requires a strategic vision that will help you guide your organization during an exciting, but tumultuous journey to the future. This book is your playbook for creating and executing just this sort of vision from a CIO who’s done it — and has the accolades and battle scars to prove it. If you’re a CIO or senior IT leader, consider it required reading.”

“As a seasoned technology leader, Jeff shares his majestic career journey with authentic vulnerability.  It is refreshing to see such a thoughtful and strategic perspective for technology leaders to learn from.  The five business models framework maps tangible steps to take action right way!”

“Jeff tells a compelling story of being a CIO in the trenches – taking charge when opportunities present themselves, shoring up operations when required, and evolving strategies that drive business results. IT leaders will relate to his challenges and learn best practices from an experienced leader.”

“Jeff’s right. The CIO is best placed to lead strategically in the face of perpetual transformation. His own journey to a seat at the table won him many battle scars. He has used that experience to craft a must-read book for any CIO that wants to know how to lead IT with strategic vision from a seat at the executive table. It is a blueprint to shift from keeping the lights on to the kind of enterprise that not only avoids disruption but builds a strategic competence of innovation.”
