1. CIOs should come from the business – not the technology – ranks: technology-rooted CIOs will never really understand the importance of business as the technology driver. When prospective CIOs start talking about network latency and virtualization it’s time to get the hook out; go with the pro talking about up-selling and cross-selling every time.
只查得get the hook这个短语,两者是一码事吗?

钩子一挥, those useless _prospective_ CIOs 就不见了? Only guessing, no idea why if it means what I think it means, it's not a big bad knife instead.

fyi

Sometimes the fish will swallow the fly and you will have to clip the line (if you are releasing your fish it is very important to try to get the hook out .

get/let someone off the hook
to allow someone to escape from a difficult situation or to avoid doing something that they do not want to do. John's agreed to go to the meeting in my place, so that lets me off the hook.
See also: let

这里是另一个意思,对于开始谈论。。的。。不如就算了,将他们予以排除在外,不再进行考虑了。

另一个:
Keep a pair of needle nose wire snips handy. Sometimes the fish will swallow the fly and you will have to clip the line (if you are releasing your fish it is very important to try to get the hook out without further injuring the fish, you want them to survive being released - however, if you cannot get the hook out, clip the line and the hook will dissolve over time).


值得注意的是,

下面两个说法意思有一些不同:
get (or give someone) the hook N. Amer.   
informal
be dismissed (or dismiss someone) from a job.

这里是get the hook out,表示主动对某为CIO放弃。

收钩?

谢谢!
我开始还以为it’s time to get the hook out是对prospective CIOs 说的,原来是对用人方说的。

No, I think the reference to "get the hook out" is this:

If someone is very bad on stage (as in an old-style vaudeville routine), a giant hook would come out, loop around that person's neck and drag that person offstage. (You see it in cartoons sometimes.)

So, "get the hook out" means to get rid of someone, usually unceremoniously.

[To clarify: It means "bring out the hook" to get rid of the person. It's a somewhat humorous phrase.]
