Dynamic IT Management in the 21st Century: a Guide for CIOs.
Book format: An electronic version of a printed book that can be read on a computer or handheld device designed specifically for this purpose.
By: Werner Schnedl, Markus SchweizerToday IT managers consider their greatest challenge to be finding a perfect match between the goals of their company and those of the IT department. This book is designed to place into the hands of experienced IT managers, tools with which to face up to this challenge. At the same time, we address the issues involved in technology management. The source of our detailed analyses of the challenges includes numerous reports and analyses from the Gartner Group, Forrester Research, Patricia Seybold, McKinsey and others. The result is a box of proven tools and methods, which we put into a sensible context. We decided to call this toolbox the CIO Navigator. The CIO Navigator is also a design process that helps CIOs to achieve more and communicate their goals. The CIO Navigator is a compendium of tools ranging from analysis through implementation to success review, which may be helpful for developing IT organisation and strategy. Individual components of the CIO Navigator may be designed as cockpits, which make it possible to measure risk evolution, the extent to which the IT strategy has been implemented, or goal performance of the processes. The implementation issues of our model were discussed with leading senior IT-Managers from the industry and financial services sectors. Their thoughts and ideas have been documented in this book to provide a critical feedback from the "front".
