Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The acclaimed IT strategic planning methodology now completely revised for the new millennium!

Bernard Boar, internationally recognized expert and IT consultant for Fortune 500 companies, overhauls his bestselling book on IT strategy to help IT professionals take on the new challenges of the hyper-competitive digital age. From assessing your business needs to setting objectives to putting your plan into gear, Boar takes you through the entire strategic planning process, showing you not only how to run your department more efficiently but also how to leverage IT resources to ensure a competitive advantage for your company.

With 50 percent new material in this edition, you’ll discover a wealth of proven tools and techniques for using IT as a competitive business asset, including:

  • Analytical methods to help identify areas in need of strategic planning
  • How to choose the best strategy framework for your company from five different frameworks
  • Quality control checks that every IT manager must know
  • How to take advantage of such technologies as e-commerce, data warehousing, architectures, and Java to help your business succeed
  • How to administer the process from concept to implementation while involving all areas of the enterprise

Book News Annotation:

Portraying the world of information technology as a war zone, Boar sprinkles his advice with quotes from military and political strategists of the past and present. His topics include managing information technology for competitive advantage, assessment, execution, quality control, and administration. He also appends aphorisms of strategy, and includes a glossary without pronunciation guides. The second edition is said to be half new; no date is noted for the first.
