Why a CTO?

A CTO is a steward of digital transformation.

The main role of a CTO is to harmonize technology with the company's vision and objectives.

To lead a digital transformation, a CTO must have:

  • A deep understanding of technology
  • Business experience and business sense
  • Leadership skills and ability to work with people
  • Effective communication
  • Ability to establish a clear mandate, and make decisions within the bounds of the mandate
  • Strategic thinking skills
  • Project and program management skills
  • A good grasp of product development and lifecycle management
  • Experience with managing people with vastly different cultures

Hire a skill set, not a person!

You don't always need a full-time person.

Depending on the size of your project and other factors, it could be more appropriate to hire on a short-term or a part-time basis.
