Machiavelli's 9-point guide to being a CIO

Leadership lessons from Machiavelli's The Prince

Written in the early 15th Century, Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince is rightly lauded as a classic of literature and analysis. It has given rise to the term Machiavellian, often ascribed to leaders who are cunning and duplicitous. One thing is for sure, this brief and easy-to-read title holds some great quotes, as useful to Dukes and Princes of the 15th Century as to the modern business technology leader. We've taken the very best quotes and attributed them to the issues that today's CIO faces. We'd welcome your suggestions too.
