Managing Information Technology in Turbulent Times
A revolution is taking place in the way companies manage their information systems. Driven simultaneously by rapid advances in user-friendly technology and an increasingly competitive business climate, business unit managers are taking direct control of information resources. Chief information officers who are reluctant to share their power over these resources may find themselves replaced by more willing candidates.
Managing Information Technology in Turbulent Times guides you across the troubled business waters of the next ten years. MIS expert and highly respected author Louis Fried demonstrates that, with flexibility, ingenuity, and forethought, you can survive and prosper through the radical changes that lie ahead. His practical advice and proven methods for solving technology management problems are culled from the best practices of CIOs from more than 1,000 major multinational corporations.
