Can we pick a winner or what? Robert Worrall, one of the up-and-coming IT professionals named in CIO\u2019s 2006 "Ones to Watch" (see "20 Leaders to Watch," www.cio.com\/070106), became CIO at Sun Microsystems in July. Previously vice president of IT, Worrall has handled operations and application support, development, and architecture issues for Sun. He also created Sun\u2019s IT governance department.Just before he was promoted, Worrall told CIO\u2019s Steff Gelston what he thinks it takes to be a successful CIO:"It\u2019s the long-forgotten skill of listening. I get frustrated by the fact that most IT people, including CIOs, rush to solutions generally involving technology of some sort. When in fact a good mentor of mine years ago said, \u2019Just set the technology aside and listen to what your business partner is really asking. And if it turns out in the final analysis that technology can help, that\u2019s great. But that\u2019s not your first job. Your first job is to help solve a business problem or a business situation.\u2019"
