Do you know what it’s like to waltz with the elephant?
You do it, de facto, on a day-to-day basis; you depend on the elephant for routine operations and future performance. Elephant helps you manage your computer network, store your corporate data and communicate within and outside your network.
The elephant is IT.
This book is about:
Waltzing with the Elephant (eBook) explores and informs you about the importance of top level understanding of, and engagement in the processes for directing and controlling the use of IT as a tool of business. It aims at building a shared understanding that leads to a well-integrated system for the governance of IT from the boardroom to the coalface, framed around the guidance in ISO/IEC 38500 standard.
The book lays the foundations for consistent, effective conversation about the use of IT across all levels of the enterprise, from boardroom to coalface. It is babble-free but jam-packed with insight to issues that should be addressed when making decisions about living with existing IT solutions and investing in new ones.
‘Waltzing with the Elephant is a must-have for any organisation that is serious about the governance of IT. It will help you align IT with your organisational objectives and achieve improved results.’ – Jamie Titchener, Product Manager, IT Governance
