GovloopMark Schwartz (former CIO at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) discussed his new book, “A Seat at the Table: IT Leadership in the Age of Agility,” on a recent episode of the DorobekINSIDER, according to GovLoop.

Based on his experience as an agile IT change leader in government, Schwartz describes the pros and cons of IT leadership roles and how they should look in the future.

From the article:

“In my experience in the government, and in my experience in the private sector before that, I saw certain patterns of IT and IT leadership that seemed to be getting in the way of really taking advantage of what the Agile world offers us,” Schwartz said. “The CIO community was very well aware of Agile approaches for delivering capabilities but hadn’t really thought how Agile approaches change what a CIO is, and what it means to lead IT.”
