Corporate Information Strategy and Management: Text and Cases Reviews
Overall, I have to rate this book a "meh", neither good nor bad. It's a disappointingly average textbook, and didn't make the final cut for inclusion on my permanent bookshelf. I think there is a good amount of useful information contained inside of it, but it's often difficult to get at. I consider myself a pretty good reader, but even I had to re-read portions of it multiple times before the information "sunk in". This book was for a graduate level MIS course and we covered it in the second half of a semester, which I think is sufficient time to read it in.
I bought this book for a IT class, the book is easy to follow. It does not repeat itself as other books I have read. My only complaint on the book is the size of the graphics, they are very small and hard to read, I had to use a magnifier glass. The book measures about 7" x 9", is small, but has a lot of material to read.
I like the book and contents and informative but some content not even related to subject, specially index of this book pretty clear.
Pretty good book in general. The first couple chapters are a good refresh on business mindset. A lot of case studies, which I did not find that useful but might be to some.
The book is dated 2009 but nearly every case is around 10 years old. Not practical in the after math of the biggest recession since the Great Depression. Chapters are informative and read like material for a high school or undergrad student. Unless you are in IT or a techy kind of person, you will not get much out of this book.
A great book to start questioning IT strategy. Business Process Management planning step by step to ensure IT can support the business today and tomorrow
