In today’s leadership column, I want to focus on the critical importance of the modern technology executive and on the increasingly pivotal role played by senior technology leaders in defining, envisioning, enabling and implementing successful business strategies that make the difference between success and failure in today’s ultra-competitive markets.

Frankly, now is the best time to be a technology executive. The C-suite, the board, investors, partners and team members all look to you for guidance, support, expertise and extreme clarity of vision. You’ve got a world of responsibility on your shoulders and the pace of business just keeps getting faster.

We’re living through on of the most dynamic, innovative and disruptive times in human history. World-class technology leaders understand the business and how the business makes money. They understand the markets that the business serves, how their supply chain works and how to meet the needs of the customers within their markets. They know how to attract the best minds and the most talented people to join their organizations and to dedicate themselves to achieving the organization’s strategic goals.

It’s a tall order and I have a feeling that we’re just at the beginning of a new cycle of tremendous change and intensive transformation. I urge you to think big, dream big and lead with courage, passion, empathy and creativity.
