Phil Weinzimer

President, Strategere Consulting

Mr. Weinzimer speaks regularly on the subject of How Strategic CIOs are Changing the Dynamics of the Business Enterprise.  His new book, "The Strategic CIO: Changing the Dynamics of the Business Enterprise" (Taylor and Francis, September 2014) focuses on how CIOs strategically transform IT organizations by leveraging information and technology to create new customer value, increase corporate revenue, and enrich shareholder value.


Over 150 CIOs, IT leaders, business executives, and academic thought leaders were interviewed as part of the research for the book. His previous book, "Getting it Right: Creating Customer Value for Market Leadership", published by John Wiley, focuses on transforming an organization using a 3P strategy: Prepare personnel to work together as a team, perceive customer needs, and provide new products and services that create sustainable and profitable value.


Mr. Weinzimer writes an ongoing column for AITS focusing on "The Strategic CIO", has written articles for CIO magazine on the subject of strategic CIOs, has co-authored a case study for Harvard Business School (HBS), and hosts an interview series, "The Strategic CIO: Managing in the 21st Century", that explores the challenges and opportunities for leveraging information and technology for competitive advantage.



"The Strategic CIO: Changing the Dynamics of the Business Enterprise" is recognized as One of the Best Business Books for 2014 by CIO Magazine.

Based on interviews with more than 150 CIOs, IT/business executives, and academic thought leaders, The Strategic CIO: Changing the Dynamics of the Business Enterprise provides insight, success stories, and a step-by-step methodology to transform your IT organization into a strategic asset that drives customer value, increases revenues, and enhances shareholder wealth. 

The book details how strategic CIOs from FedEx, Procter & Gamble, McKesson, and other leading companies transformed their organizations. It illustrates the methods these CIOs used to become strategic partners that collaborate effectively within their organizations to leverage information and technology for a competitive advantage.

The text will help you assess the key competencies and skills required by IT personnel to partner with your business teams to create new and enhanced products and services that create customer value, increase margin, and enhance shareholder wealth.

The book includes powerful methodologies, time-saving templates, proven best practices, and helpful assessments. It also details a four-phase methodology, along with the associated activities and tools, to help your IT organization successfully transform into a strategic IT organization.

Gain insight into the four domain competencies and twelve associated skills required to build effective strategic IT organizations. Build your roadmap to success using the transformation methodology described in the text and you will be on your way to making your organization a strategic IT organization.
