The Art of Business Value
The Art of Business Value
by Mark Schwartz
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.32

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok yes maybe it could have been a little shorter ..., 24 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok yes maybe it could have been a little shorter but:
Once you get to the last third of the book it is full of suggestions, thought-provoking comments and personal challenges to you as a technology leader, management consultant or business leader who depends on technology.

Written by a CIO with a sense of humour that has no issue with casting dispersion upon his role or how It is viewed or views others; this book leads on a careful exploration of what is value, what is technology and what then is the value of technology to a business. Why, when and how do you know that what you are doing matters? Top ten book for technology management.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better, faster, safer technology (people, processes, automation and suppliers), 27 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple concise guide to show how the fundamentals of lean can help (1) IT leaders change the way technology enables an organisation; (2) staff and suppliers can work together to bring better, faster, safer and improve to the use of technology and (3) business leaders can bridge the gap between technology as a cost and technology as an enabler. Look at the simple models, try the concept of Catch-ball, see how leaders should act and experiment with what this book suggests. Fun read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep the Business in Business using all of your technology, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Articulate book that shares many thoughts on how to use technology (people, suppliers, processes and the fun stuff) based on agile and lean such that your organisation and customers benefit. Best part is the manner it respectfully treats the alliance between Operations, ITIL and Dev with the business to create this mix iteratively over time. If you are a leader or manager, this book has a section to help with excellent examples to aid in the journey.
