9781633691667: The Adventures of an IT Leader, Updated Edition with a New Preface by the Authors

What does it take to lead and manage your company’s tech?

Becoming an effective IT leader and manager presents a host of challenges from anticipating emerging technologies, to managing relationships with senior executives, vendors, and employees, to communicating with the board. A good IT leader must also be a strong business leader.

This book now thoroughly updated with a new preface by the authors and current tech details and terminology invites you to accompany new CIO Jim Barton as he steps up to leadership at his company. You’ll get a deeper understanding of the role of IT in your own organization as you see Jim struggle through a tough first year, handling (and fumbling) all kinds of management challenges. Although fictional, the scenarios are based on the authors’ long experience working with real-life companies across industries and sectors.

The Adventures of an IT Leader is both an insightful story and an instructive guidebook. You can read it from beginning to end or treat it as a series of cases, skipping around to different chapters that address your most pressing needs. (For example, if you need to learn about crisis management and security, read chapters 10 12.) You can also test yourself and think about how to use the book’s lessons in your own company by reading the authors’ Reflection” questions at the end of each chapter.

This book is your indispensable manual for IT management and leadership, no matter what business you’re in.

Descripción Harvard Business Review Press, United States, 2016. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Updated ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. The day-to-day challenges faced by the average CIO are not usually the stuff of epic drama-except when they are. Enter our hero: Jim Barton, the new CIO of the fictional IVK Corporation. He is the creation of authors Robert Austin, Richard Nolan, and Shannon O Donnell, and his story gives a practical yet entertaining look at the true adventures of an IT leader.Based on the authors years of first-hand experience with diverse companies, the story begins as the IVK Corporation struggles to recover from a period of slowing growth and falling stock prices. An aggressive new CEO handpicks Barton to be CIO-even though Barton has no background in IT.We follow Barton s adventures as he discovers what effective IT management is all about, deals with the everyday challenges of the job, responds to major crises, and remakes the company s technology capabilities into a vital strategic asset.Read the book from beginning to end or treat it as a series of case studies; the ways of using this book section explains which chapters cover which subjects, while the authors reflection questions help you puzzle through the problems in each episode.Now fully updated and with a new preface by the authors, The Adventures of an IT Leader is an engaging way to enhance your IT leadership skills.
