The IT Handbook for Digital Leaders
- Have you been thrust into a leadership role but have little understanding of IT?
- Do you find yourself overly reliant on your IT leader and technology vendors for IT-related guidance?
- Does even the mention of IT cause your eyes to glaze over?
If any of these apply to you then you will benefit from reading IT Demystified. It is a short engaging book written for the non-technical reader. It covers the basics right through to digital strategy and information security policy. It can be thought of as new technology executive education for the Digital Age.
From the back cover:
In the Digital age, those leaders who know how to harness the full potential of new technologies will be very much in demand. IT Demystified sets out what you need to know, and where you need to focus, as not all aspects of IT are value-delivering,
The basic terminology is covered, as are the strategic considerations. You will learn about the IT function, including who does what. Technologies on, and over, the horizon are also introduced, along with their business potential. A chapter is dedicated to the important theme of information security. Guidance on IT strategy formulation is also provided.
IT Demystified is for enterprise leaders, those who will have direct responsibility for the IT function, and those whose success is predicated on new technologies.
This is the first in Ade McCormack’s Digital Strategy series of books.
