How to become an information leader and transform your business

While many firms focus most on the technological aspects of the information technology (IT) equation, this guide shows that success requires attention to the information itself. Using an instructive business parable, a set of guiding principles is presented; their implementation can be used to effectively build and manage an IT department in any company, large or small. From CEOs and chief information officers (CIOs) to managers who want to become information leaders within their organizations, business leaders will learn how to see the big picture, identify practical goals and solutions, work with staff to build systems that work, and turn information into a powerful corporate asset.


"A three-hour train journey took only a few minutes yesterday as I read the draft of your book. A really excellent piece of work." —Martin White, Managing Director, Intranet Focus Ltd.
