Let go of IT. Chances are, your first P&L management role will take place during your CIO reign since the company for whom you have delivered first-rate IT service is more likely than a brand-new organization to take a chance on your revenue management skills. While you might be tempted to maintain the same level of IT oversight as before, you will have to let go if you're going to give your new business the attention it deserves.

Leave emotion out of it. For obvious reasons, most CIOs' first P&L management role involves a technology product. The good news is that CIOs know a thing or two about technology, its product development lifecycle and what customers want out of new purchases. The bad news is that many CIOs, no matter how business-oriented they are, have a deep and abiding love of technology that can get in the way of objectivity.

Use your own customer experiences as a guide to selling. "Selling a license to software was the toughest thing I've ever done," says Wright. "Our customers, CIOs and CFOs, are incredibly risk-averse and I was selling products that could have been considered more of a luxury than a must-have; the sales cycle could be between 9 and 18 months."

Stay on top of product development. As CIO, you manage an array of professionals and are all too aware of the conflicts that can erupt between, say, your project management office (PMO) leaders and your head of applications. This is nothing compared to the tensions between sales and product development, says Wright. "The sales guy will tell you the product doesn't work; the product guy will tell you the sales guy is making unrealistic promises to customers just to close the deal, and the service guy will tell you that they're both full of it," he says.

The result has been increased ratings this regular season. Everything has been flipped. The offseason is thrilling, "stay on your phone every second checking what's happening" drama. The regular season is fascinating and competitive, with superstar matchups and explosive performances every night. The playoffs? Ho-hum, the Warriors win again. What's interesting is that this might be an actually better growth strategy for the league. A dynamite dynasty to attract the casual viewers who only want to see greatness, a super-compelling offseason and intriguing regular season to keep the die-hards engaged. It flips the standard models on their heads, but it also makes the best use of the NBA's ever-expanding digital presence.

Bring in your own finance person. Even with an MBA degree, Beason knew he needed a finance person to help him with the finer points. "What really helped me in the first six months of running this business was sitting down with my finance guy and having him look over my shoulder at the numbers," says Beason. "He would tell me how he thought we should be treating the revenue or calculating IRR. Before I went out publicly with any statements, I needed an internal person to tell me when the king had no clothes."
