Publisher's Summary

Becoming an effective IT manager presents a host of challenges - from anticipating emerging technology to managing relationships with vendors, employees, and other managers. A good IT manager must also be a strong business leader. This book invites you to accompany new CIO Jim Barton to better understand the role of IT in your organization. You'll see Jim struggle through a challenging first year, handling (and fumbling) situations that, although fictional, are based on true events. You can listen to this book from beginning to end, or treat is as a series of cases. You can also skip around to address your most pressing needs. For example, need to learn about crisis management and security? Listen to chapters 10-12. You can formulate your own responses to a CIO's obstacles by listening to the authors' regular "Reflection" questions. You'll turn to this book many times as you face IT-related issues in your own career.

    "Recommended for those in IT management"

    IMHO, if you are involved in the management of tech teams, or you have colleagues in your organization who are, this is worth the time. Good for CIO/CTO's, and consultants who report to executive teams.
