2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mufaddal Photographer on December 13, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book is short, succinct and doesnt repeat itself endlessly like the numerous other publications in this space. It provides a great framework for your strategy - based on the time-tested process/people/technology triad (the book calls it biz, org and tech alignment). I was able to apply it in my current job and get tremendous buy-in. That being said this is not a book targeted to non-managers. If you are looking for any form of technical architecture this is not for you. It is not targeted to analysts. It also wont get into the details of how your deliverable's should look like. You can safely take the title literally. Finally this might be a dated publication but I feel its more relevant than some of the more recent books.

One missing element - No guidance on how to proceed with the thorny issue of ROI. I was looking for specifics/templates.

The book recommends (and I would too) The Performance Manager: Proven Strategies for Turning Information into Higher Business Performance, which, along with a project management oriented book (Business Intelligence Roadmap: The Complete Project Lifecycle for Decision-Support Applications), would be a great complement to get your BI projects off the ground. Of course you would need a host of technical books depending on project specifics and your tech stack.

Excellent starter book for laying out a strategic plan for your BICC. This book uses a lot of information referenced from the book "The Performance Manager" by Roland Mossiman, which I highly recommend purchasing.
