Review

Selig has brought together his years of practical experience and his academic training to produce a valuable resource on how to successfully manage IT. He uses IT governance as the focal point for executing best practices to create alignment between IT and the business. In today s marketplace, where no organization can compete effectively without alignment, this book can become the executive handbook for IT management. --Christine V. Bullen, Senior Lecturer, Howe School of Technology Management, Stevens Institute of Technology

Dr. Selig s book on this topic is a great resource for all IT practitioners and brings together every critical aspect relating to IT governance. This book lays out a roadmap to executing within a solid governance model. It looks at all aspects of establishing, marinating, growing and sustaining an IT ecosystem. The combination of case studies and disciplined approaches to building well structured processes, committed leaders and change agents will help the board, executive management and most of all, CIO s and IT professionals think through what has worked, what can work and how to deploy IT governance successfully. I very much enjoyed reading the chapters. I think you have a great book and I look forward to reading it when it comes out. --Dick LeFave, CIO, Sprint Nextel

Dr. Selig has written an extremely comprehensive book on IT Governance. It is so comprehensive that today's IT leader need look at few other sources to ensure that they have nailed what it takes to lead a world-class IT organization. It provides details, yet serves as a easily reference-able road-map for today's busy IT executives…it's a great desktop companion! --Stu Werner, Executive Vice President and CIO, Li & Fong, U.S.A.

This book provides a most excellent overview of IT governance. I purchased a number of individual books on specific aspects of IT governance; i.e., ITIL v4, Cobit v3.1, Val IT, etc., but the information provided on specific aspects of governance contained in these books paled in comparison to the specific aspects of governance contained in Gad Selig's book. Well written and highly recommended!

I think that is good book for people that doesn't know anything about IT Governance and for some that already have a knowledgement about it, for those the book is a overview and for these it's a well writen guide!
