About the Author
Top customer reviews
Then there are other books that give frameworks to actually implement such "strategies" or practices. This book is of this type.
It gave very nice tips like the framework imperatives and the idea of implementing strategy - and the organization itself - as programs and projects. I've got to say that the introduction and conclusion is the best in the book. However, while it gives you a framework to implement, I would rather say it is far lacking in this area. Much is being taken from other people's work. And while authors do that, like Williams & Williams did the something in their "The Profit Impact of Business Intelligence", authors usually merge that in their approaches to enrich the content and increase benefits. This book did not do that.
I have to say I am a little disappointed, especially when they deal with other's experiences say "they fail to know" as if everything is figured out when you do not actually see extensive work in the book. I think that the starting idea of the book is very solid and well-though of but the making this into a book was not well-executed (which is kind-of the idea of the book; execution). I think if the source article of the book is read, it would be valuable and enough, and I will be looking for more from the authors in future writings.
