How to be more than a tech leader

More than being tech leaders, CIOs and technology leaders have to conceive and sell ideas, identify and secure resources, marshal and lead a team to create a new product or service… that sounds like the role of an entrepreneur! Today’s CIO needs to be an entrepreneurial visionary who sees a totally different way of doing business. What are the qualities needed to be a truly entrepreneurial technology leader?
