    Analytics for Leaders: A Performance Measurement System for Business Success

    By N. I. Fisher, Cambridge University Press, Available: December. Backed by more than 20 years of R&D, this book offers concise but complete best practices for establishing an enterprisewide performance management system.

Are you curious about what your CEO likes to see in up-and-coming talent? Or what non-tech sciences can offer with respect to making smart business decisions—whether in IT or other organizational areas? Or how to effectively manage the onslaught of big data to further strategies, while not allowing your department to become overwhelmed by it all? If you want the answers to these questions, you're in luck. The following 10 winter books offer tremendous insights about these and other business and technology topics. Given that social media and customer relationship management go hand in hand, for example, one of these books focuses on how to stay ahead of the consumer expectation curve. Another tome explores how companies can take better advantage of big data internally in order to nurture a new breed of highly engaged, productive employees. And another book examines the qualities of military people that would greatly help businesses stay ahead of the competitive curve. You'll want to check out some of these books—or give them as gifts during this holiday season. (All included release dates are subject to change.)
