Publisher's Summary

Introducing a Powerful New Business Model for Today's IT

Blogger, speaker, software executive, and best-selling author Jill Dyché has been thinking about leadership a lot lately. Having consulted with business and IT executives with Fortune 500 companies for most of her career, she has heard a common refrain: "What should we do about shadow IT?" She's decided to address the answer head-on.

With the onslaught of cloud solutions, consumerization of technology, and increasingly tech-savvy business people, it's time for a manifesto for leaders who recognize - and are nervous about - the demands of the digital age. Whether you're an executive, department head, or IT manager, The New IT provides an action-ready blueprint for building and strengthening the role of IT in your company - and prescribing IT's future. Learn how to:

  • ASSESS your current and future IT profile
  • ALIGN your IT organization with business priorities
  • MAP technology delivery plans according to business priorities
  • ORGANIZE IT according to your company's culture and strengths
  • REDEFINE innovation and talent management practices
  • BUILD a stronger and enduring role for IT as a business partner

By using field-tested techniques to align your IT department with your corporate objectives, you can leverage the power of technology across the entire company. The New IT provides a set of tactical and experienced-based frameworks to help you and your colleagues conceive a new roadmap. It also includes real-world case studies and best practices from successful, technology-enabled companies such as Toyota, Merck, Brooks Brothers, Union Bank, and many others. You'll hear from major industry pioneers, IT thought leaders, and other change agents who are leading the way in this new frontier. And you'll learn how to bring your business and IT together in a way that is truly transformative.

The new IT is more than computing power. It balances strategy and delivery. It's interactive and inclusive. It's as omnipresent as the smart phone and just as revolutionary. It equips you with the tools you need to succeed in reframing the IT conversation and propelling your business forward.

Critic Reviews

"Jill has penned a de Toquevillean map of the digital world. Should be a required text for every business leader in the country." (Thornton May, futurist and author of The New Know)
"Enterprise IT has reached an inflection point in how services are delivered and consumed, requiring our profession to undertake a transformation of our own. Jill Dyché describes well the challenges we face, how to assess them, and how to take action to complete the journey toward modern enterprise IT." (Kimberly Stevenson, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Intel)
"Conversational, intuitive, and intelligent, this book goes right to the heart of governance (control), innovation (change), identity (authority), relevance (alignment), and influence (strategy). It's a timely book that should be read by executives across organizations." (Peter Marx, Chief Innovation and Technology Officer, City of Los Angeles)

Missing content

Unfortunately the Audio version excludes multiple chapters, figures and worksheets. Had I known I would not have purchased the Audio version. Great story line otherwise.

Great book, but need to be more simplified!

Great book, but sometimes i feel that im lost trying to translate what im hearing to what im encountering in real life. Also lots of emphasis and talk while the topic/subtopic is understood within the 1st 5-8 mins

Good overall information but lacking supplemental material

I really enjoyed the book as it was packed full of information that could be put into play immediately. There was one irritating aspect of the audio version that drive me nuts. At least 2 chapters were omitted because they were self assessments. I wonder why they could not have been included as PDF's as many audio books do?
