5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of a difficult, yet very current topic, 17 Nov. 2008
This review is from: IT-Enabled Business Change: Successful Management (Paperback)
Having worked in this field for many years, you can easily be forgiven for thinking to khow all there is to know about this subject. This, despite the everyday difficulties we face, and evidence of high profile projects that continue to fail, for a host of common and entirely avoidable reasons. This book helped me to realise where my gaps were and inspired me to get out there and stretch the boundaries of my knowledge and expertise - to try to get it right more often.

The book is easy to read and covers all the main apsects of IT-enabled business change, pulling on traditional approaches, conventional wisdom and leanrnings from hard practical experiences - of success as well as failure. It doesn't perport to be a handbook with all of the answers, but it's a great summary of everything that you should be considering and doing for your company or your clients.

Any practitioner will quickly realise that it provides a solid framework that can usefully guide personal development, as well as helping to manage change project better. If you have well established methodology for this, let the book test that and challenge some of the standards you work to.

Right now, the UK in particluar is waking up to the potential economic benefits of fully exploiting IT investments - and the wasted opportunities of the past - getting IT-enabled business change right lies at the heart of the issue. It is very timely that Sharm Manwani shoudl write this book.

This is an essential read for everyone interested in this field, no matter how experienced.
