Companies of all shapes and sizes are devoting increasing energy to the challenges and opportunities arising from newfound digital capacities. IT has shifted from being a business process tool to now being embedded as the engine of business creativity. And as a consequence, the quality of technical leadership has become a critical success factor. In the life of any company, regardless of its size or sector, there are defining moments. Similarly, critical and defining events (the Moments that Matter) occur during the career progression of all leaders. Through an in-depth qualitative study of the IT management in over 300 companies in the UK, France and Germany, we have explored key issues to gain insight on what empowers (or disempowers) successful alignment with modern business practice. We looked at how IT professionals assess risk; the critical moments which shape the CIO’s career and what tools and techniques they prefer when managing change.
