Digital transformation: C-suite leadership is a big key to success

Why do some digital transformation initiatives flounder while others succeed? One answer might lie with the C-suite leadership. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with StarCIO's founder Isaac Sacolick about his latest book, Digital Trailblazer: Essential Lessons to Jumpstart Transformation and Accelerate Your Technology Leadership. According to Isaac, good leadership is about understanding how technology can serve the business, adapting to innovation, and building high-performance teams.


[Digital transformation] comes down to leadership, really understanding where's technology making a difference and having the leadership step to be able to carry forward and implement and plan.

Isaac Sacolick is the President and CIO of StarCIO. He previously held CIO roles at media, financial services, and construction industry businesses, and he was a CTO at several social networking startups.
