Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book on IT Governance both as a primer and also as source of reference. IT Governance is very topical at present as organisations look to IT to deliver tangible value to directly improve the bottom line and implementing effective Governance is essential for Business-IT alignment. Peter and Jeanne provide an excellent yet simple framework for designing and implementing IT Governance in any large organisation. Latter chapters on governance mechanisms, best practices (ch 5) and linking strategy, IT governance and performance (ch 6) are particularly insightful.

Authors Peter Weill and Jeanne W. Ross provide a thoughtful overview of an important topic - how companies govern information technology and how they can maximize their IT investments. Although computer professionals don’t walk around in white lab coats the way they did in the early 1970s, many corporate cultures tend to isolate IT professionals. Although studies show that companies which govern their IT processes effectively earn higher profits, IT professionals often seem cloistered in their own high-tech priesthood. This book provides a blueprint for harnessing IT and making it the efficient value-generating machine it was always intended to be. You don’t have to wear a pocket-liner, carry a PDA or even know what "http" stands for to benefit from reading this book, which makes a strong case for the importance of solid, goal-aligned IT management. If you sense that your company suffers from a disconnect between its strategy and its IT capabilities, we believe this book could become your firm’s most important piece of low-tech information technology.

This book seems to be based on good research and analysis, but it feels padded: in several chapters, the same points are made in different ways. Perhaps this is to help an executive target audience that may not have the time to read the whole book, or perhaps the authors wanted to justify the hardback binding and cover price.

The book aims to serve both IT executive and the senior management in general, at which it mostly succeeds. Technologies and management decisions are mentioned sparingly, and the focus is just as the title says. For anyone wanting to learn about different gIT overnance approaches and why they work, this is a reasonable introduction.

I found 'IT Governance' to fairly easy to read with good explanations of the subject matter and the various types of mechanisms employed to achieve maximum value from IT governance. There were several excellent insights and practical suggestions for implementing better governance which I found to be especially useful.

I would say it is a must for IT Governance study. If you're doing a Master/PhD or just an undergraduate study and it involves IT Governance than you should read this book!
