This concept is relevant regardless of the size or age of your business. Using frameworks such as COBIT, CMMI, and ITIL in your organizations may cost a bit of investment of upfront but the pay back gained by selecting the right projects, executing the project work the right way by mitigating risk and building in quality up front and then taking care of the customer after the sale is crucial to staying in business and maintaining profitability.
2015 update to my 2004 review:
Over ten years later, this book is still unsurpassed in terms of the relevance and depth of coverage. Many IT fads have come and gone (think SOA, Green IT) and the field has had nice new advances (cloud computing, apps, ecosystems). Yet the topics in this book are enduring. The most original aspects in this book, in retrospect, are: (a) the whole discussion about decision rights, (b) centralization versus decentralization of IT, and (c) the discussion of how IT infrastructure and apps must be tackled separately but must also cohere. The second author also published an article in HBR ("Six IT decisions IT should not make") that is a nice complement to this book. I still highly recommend this book.
