The path ahead is exciting and requires leadership. To posit, ad hominem, that incumbent CIOs are wholly not up to the myriad and constantly morphing tasks associated with a rapidly digitizing civilization is a fallacy being foisted upon enterprises by revenue-scrounging executive search firms.

The reality is -- just as it has been for the past 32 years -- that organizations get the IT they deserve.
