Top critical review
Useful but a little repetitive
on 7 February 2010
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.
