The implementation of Information Technology in the user environment often leaves much to be desired – either in percentage utilisation, user skills, or a combination of these and other factors. These prevent the business from realising the true benefit of the investment.
In this book Stewart Marshall provides the non-I.T. executive (or decision-maker) with the information, methodology and 5 principles with which to address and resolve these problems. This is done in language free from acronyms, jargon and I.T. ‘tribal-speak’. The book flows progressively through the methodology, leaving the reader with a clear understanding of how to approach the situation in a structured manner.
This book cuts through the noise and helps the reader, through the use of the five principles, to focus on those signals which will return the optimum benefit. This is done by ensuring that the right tools are given to the right users (and, in certain cases, your customers), with the right training and at the right time.
I highly recommend this for all non-I.T. executives wanting a fresh perspective on optimising their investment in I.T., as well as for the I.T. executive who would like a refresher on seeing his field from the eyes of the C-suite. In fact, I would suggest putting it on the list of gifts for customers this year. But first get a copy for yourself.
There are so many books out that that read more like an introduction to IT for dummies. This book does not treat the reader like a dummy but like someone that needs to know this IT information to manage their business successfully.
Full of gems and suggestions as you read some of my favourites are "IT is only ever a cost when it's poorly implemented" or "What matters are the ideas you have, not the tools you use to implement them".
At a time where people are so confused about all of the technological advancements around them this is a must-read for how to engage with IT in your business and use the tools it provides to remain competitive and thrive.
The examples are relatable and the overall tone relatively informal.
Well worth the time to read if you own or run a business, think IT is only a cost, and feel like you are not getting the value you expect from your IT.
Your IT systems can either be the greatest enabler to disabler in a business.
Buy this book and understand how you can maximise your business IT systems.
