Book Description

13 April 2007
At last, here is a book that brings IT′s relationship with business to life, and enables you to implement strategy rather than develop it. Richard Wyatt–Haines helps you see the true potential of IT in delivering the growth and success to which you aspire. Whilst you may have seen the chapter headings before, you won′t have seen the topics approached in a manner that helps you understand the what, the why and the how, and then shows you what you have to do on the ground to deliver impact and success. In each chapter, Richard takes three different, but complementary, approaches to the topics: Touching – which links the underlying thinking with the world in which CEOs, IT mangers and directors operate. Looking – which provides stories, case studies and examples to bring the topic to life Doing – which tells you what actions you need to take You can use all three approaches, or just follow the one that suits your own personality and learning preference best. Drawing on every ounce of his years of facilitating and speaking experience, Richard brings a passion to the topic that will inspire you to go out and do something different so that you achieve something different...and better! Align IT is accessible, the principles memorable and the lessons applicable. This book is stimulating, engaging and energizing. Before undertaking any major change in strategy or organizational structure I suggest you read it." – John Anderson, Director, Sony Europe "Richard Wyatt–Haines has written an insightful and intensely practical book illustrating just how IT strategy can be correctly aligned with Business strategy and genuinely help to deliver breakthrough performance...This book should be required reading for executive and non–executive Directors and Not just CIOs." – Prof Jim Norton, Senior Policy Adviser E–Business & E–Government, UK Institute of Directors "Whether you aspire to be a CIO, or you′ve been doing the job for decades, you will definitely learn something from this book. All CIOs need to be able to simplify complex topics into straightforward, approvable strategies: Richard will help to get you there." – Aiden Walsh, Director of IS, Cancer Research UK

5.0 out of 5 stars "No excuses if you read this one" 17 May 2007
Format:Paperback
This book takes a mystical subject (strategy) blows it wide open, and imparts the knowledge and wisdom to turn an IT Department from a boring maintenance function, to pioneers of strategy. Plenty of examples, ideas and practical tips for those who seek to take the proactive lead; it will leave you nowhere to hide.

5.0 out of 5 stars YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS 27 May 2009
By Ed
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has proved invaluable for a change management project that our company has been undertaking. Our knowledge of the subject area was not perhaps as up-to-date as it should have been after five years out of the change management arena, but this brought us up to speed very quickly. In particular, the data provided has been ideal for including in presentations. A first class production from a highly switched-on
author - who is an excellent communicator.
