10 Useful New Books on Business Value and IT

The Long Conversation: Maximizing Business Value from Information Technology Investment By Oswaldo Lorenzo, Peter Kawalek, Boumediene Ramdani and Gaston Gonzalez Palgrave MacMillanOctober 25, 2011A group of business school profs and management experts discuss getting the most of existing IT assets, instead of investing in silver bullets.
“Value” is one of the trickiest concepts to define in today’s business lexicon. Are your people driving value? What value is your company getting from investments tied to your department? And perhaps above all, what is your value to the organization? In an era where the bottom line rules, cost management is an essential, and high productivity is just table stakes, it’s critical for leaders and managers to understand what brings value to the business. Ten new books arriving this fall can help you get a clearer view of these all-important elements. They’ll teach you more about maximizing return on investment, making smarter decisions, pushing your people to their full capacity, and becoming a more well-rounded, influential leader. While they might not be laser-focused on IT management, each of the books holds crucial lessons for current and aspiring managers, directors and executives. Note: publication dates are subject to change.
