Editorial Reviews

Review

Everyone needs an IT strategy but nobody knows exactly what one is, let alone how to build one. Anita Cassidy has written the definitive how-to book for a traditionally fuzzy field.
Bob Lewis, President, IT Catalysts

A well defined IT strategy provides the cornerstone for any IS organization wishing to distinguish itself as a value added business enabler. This is a clear and practical guide for developing such a strategy. Keep it handy, you'll be using it frequently.
Ruth Dessel, CIO, Metropolitan Council

I read the first edition and now luckily the second. Cassidy's methodology has been enhanced and lifted to the next level. This edition contains new real world examples, checklists, and templates. It is a must read (and follow) for all IT managers.
Keith Guggenberger, Senior Vice President of Operations , Starkey Laboratories

Finding the style the book is written a bit hard to engage.

This is worth reading, and the practical approach drawing on experience has been useful to me in the past.

However, having re-read my copy recently, what struck me most was how much it felt like a history lesson. This is very much what companies used to do and what many still do. I could think of many examples from my own experience that matched the descriptions in the book. What it is not is a blueprint of how to do things in the future or even a description of the best of today's practices.

Worth reading, but keep it as background and not as a guide for working today.

I was looking for a comprehensive book on IT strategy. As a CIO and a consultant I have performed strategy development engagements. But I wanted to make sure I was indeed covering all the right areas. This book contains a number of examples, sample questions and surveys which are very helpful in conducting a strategy engagement. Although, some are too detailed for an experienced person, they are still useful from completeness point of view.

I would have liked some of these to be available in an electronic form to be able to be customized.

I recommend this book to strategy novices as well as practitioners.

This is a fairly decent compendium and useful .. just a bit dated and lacking in real depth in some areas

By Shane A. King on October 20, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Finding the style the book is written a bit hard to engage. The methodology is great, but it bogs down at times comapared to others. Some of my favourite titles of late have been from Harvard Business School and these seem easier to digest in quick spurts (time to read is limited). Otherwise a very detailed process with sound princples
