June 1, 2012 - PRLog -- NEW ORLEANS, La. – Steve Jobs once said, “What a computer is to me is the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It's the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds." Technology is critical in today’s society – especially in the business world. It was for this reason that Andrew West, Technology Thought-Leader, Mobile App Developer, and Innovator was driven to write his new book, The Modern CEO: Technology Tools, Innovation & Guidebook for today's Tech Savvy Leader (published by AuthorHouse). His goal: To communicate a message to organizational leaders to embrace and realize the importance that technology plays in their leadership roles.

“Technology can no longer remain the elephant in the room, nor the afterthought of any project nor the scapegoat for organizational problems that exist,” explains West. “Technology literacy is a step toward tech-savvy. This book is written for all leaders who know, deep down, that technology is critical to their business and would like to learn how businesses do manage technology well.”

Drawing from years of technology support and leadership experience, West has created an insightful compilation of research, stories and strategies that sets forth a cutting-edge approach sharing the message of innovative leadership through technology. This book provides an insider’s perspective on information technology practitioners, leadership experts, technology consultants and organization leaders.

The Modern CEO takes readers inside the minds of today's leader, prescribing viable tools and effective solutions designed to address any organization’s unique technology needs in order to achieve their business goals and objectives.

“Through this book I am charging leaders, modern c-level executives to become tech-savvy.”
