As a Financial Advisor, I work with business owners at all levels of growth. The distinct difference between those that thrive and those that flounder rests in their ability to retrieve and interpret data. This book accomplishes what a dozen seminars could not. By use of a great story line - it brings its reader inside the conversations, emotions, consequences, and struggles of the owners and key employees whose lives and careers are impacted by the decisions that are made by those at the top. This book educates the reader regarding difficult and confusing topics while engaging us in the lives of real characters with relate-able challenges.I highly recommend this book to any business owner or entrepreneur that is looking to create an "Edge" of their own. If you're in business - you owe to yourself and your employees to read this book!!

The Edge does just that, it keeps you on the edge of your seat as you follow a small business owner grapple with the challenges of a growing closely-held business. This is a wonderful read, similar to one of my favorite books, the Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt. The business fable helps brings you in to the real world challenges that are often misunderstood by a bottleneck in IT. As a finance business executive who has been responsible for IT throughout much of my career, a few of the stories bring the hairs on the back of my neck as a many of us has experienced these challenges in the past. This is a great read for management and business teams who are going through an IT implementation. The IT summary in the back of the books provide excellent leadership questions and definitions to help get everyone on the same page.

This is an excellent book about how IT can have an impact on the success of a company. The information unfolds in the form of a story and it was an enjoyable read – I wanted to read on to find out what happens in the story. The learning is the important part – learning how Information Technology can make a huge difference for a company. I can recommend this book for business leaders and IT professionals who want to learn about how they can leverage IT to take their company to higher levels of success. There is a great section of information at the end as well that gives great takeaways on IT Governance best practices, Business Intelligence, Outsourcing, ERP Systems, CRM Systems, Managing IT Risks, and more. Highly recommend…

The authors’ craft a compelling story and I recognized some behaviors and outcomes from throughout my career reflected in the pages. It is apparent that years of consulting have refined the books message, which plain and simple, is that without IT governance a company will lose one of its most strategic enablers. While the story kept the pages turning, I also appreciated the concept tutorials in the back of the book. These would be a big help for quickly implementing some of the concepts. This is a great book for IT staff starting to move up the management ladder or for executives looking to leverage the greatest potential from their IT departments.

Highly recommended!!!

At last, an IT business book that anyone can understand. Well crafted, easy to read, and profound in its ability to communicate just how critical information technology leadership is to the success of any organization. This book demonstrates why IT leadership is key, as well as how to bring this leadership into your own organization. It's easy to tell a story about a business that is suffering due to lack of IT strategy, but much harder to describe how you solve the problem. This book tells you how to solve the problem.
Required reading for any business owner or operator.

As a financial manager finding myself in an IT management role, this books demystifies many of the questions I had about how to make sense of IT. In addition to being a good read, The Edge showed me what to expect from my IT department, how to structure it, and how to measure its performance. An invaluable primer on how to get your arms around taking control back of this critical part of your business. Well done!

The author took a subject that some may find dry and uninviting and breathed life into it through colorful characters and a relate-able story line. The principles it discusses are critical to the healthy growth of a company and it’s competitive advantage of having a productive IT department focused on bringing business value and increasing the bottom line. It is a must have for anyone looking for ways to bring IT off the expense side and on to the revenue side of the balance sheet.

Excellent & quick read to better understand the business success that can come from the intersection of technology and commerce. Not a book to get caught up in the latest tech fad, it covers the most fundamental & important areas were technology can positively impact a business in a fun read. The authors did a great job to keep the theme simple and consequently the story is engaging while still touching on key concepts without losing sight of the bigger point.
