"You don't win by just being against things; you only win by being for things and making your message perfectly clear." - Feb. 11, 1975.

Being a leader is hard and Thatcher knows it well. This quote perfectly emphasizes on the approach that CIOs must take against situations within the corporate. Never oppose the essentials inside the organization.

"I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end." - House of Commons, March 31, 1982.
