(Sorry to the author...)
I found this book to be a huge waste of time. I am the CIO of $2Bil+ company and I read a lot of books on IT management and strategy. This book has way too many generalities and does not provide concrete guidance. The book is a few years old and is starting to be a bit dated in term of some of the topics being covered.

this was nothing more than an advertisement for a self serving industry that has spent the last 25 years convincing management of a solution to a made up problem read at an insanely slow pace. the real problem in IT is project managers and their insane idea that everything has to be a project. could not wait to be done with this book.
Great listen on the ever changing roles, processes, and technologies in the blended world of business and information technology. Lots of ideas and tools, for implementing and utilizing, a Kaizen (continual improvement) philosophy in to your organization(s). Nice flow and narration.
