As a CTO, which magazines do I read and get the most good out of? Identifying #1 is easy - Business Week
. Almost every issue contains something that I can quote in a blog, circle for future reference, tear out a page to show a friend, or pass the entire issue along. Though I am lothe to save old issues of any periodical because I can always look it up again online, there are a dozen old issues of BW under my desk just in case I want to get to them again. I also find single pages of the magazine stuffed into project folders relating to the articles. Also, the magazine always arrives on Friday and I try to finish reading it before Monday so I can move on an idea before other people.
Where does the list go from there?
- Business Week
- Business 2.0
- Academy of Management Review
From there the list branches into titles that I am reading in specific industries to understand new trends.
