i was just reading this excellent piece called "Lost in Translation"


Many CEOs feel confused by the translation they receive from their technology staff regarding the benefits of technology. One CEO told me it's like having someone translate French to English, however, every third word is still in French. Just for a moment, imagine how lonely that conversation would make you feel.

Your CIO sits at the intersection of business and technology. He must be able to translate business strategy into technology and the benefits of technology into business language that senior management understands.
