Latest book in the ‘Thought Leadership’ series released: Managing in a Service-Focused World


IT Governance, the global provider of IT governance, risk management and compliance expertise, has announced that the fourth book in the ‘Thought Leadership’ series, Managing in a Service-Focused World, is now available from the IT Governance e-commerce website.

Written by Roger K Williams, this book is co-published by IT Governance Publishing (ITGP) and itSMF USA, and represents a valuable addition to the popular Thought Leadership series.
Managing in a Service-Focused World gives new managers a framework for professional development based on the established principles of service management. It presents management as a service that can be judged on the needs of the key stakeholders: the managers themselves, their staff, their directors and their customers.
Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance Ltd, the parent company of ITGP, explains, “When most people begin their management career, they are thrown in at the deep end with little practical help. Usually, they do not even have a clear career path in mind. Becoming a manager will always be challenging, but with guidance, planning and forethought, and the careful application of the service management principles in this book, the transition can be less painful, more effective and give better long term results.
“Roger’s book gives a fresh perspective on what it takes to be a good manager and it’s a lesson that those new to management will benefit from the most. But all managers can learn something from the idea that management is fundamentally a service, and that everyone you work with closely is a stakeholder who has a vested interest in developing your management skills.”
After reading the book, Dave Jones of Pink Elephant was enthusiastic, saying, “I have seen it on other books, read it in critics reviews ‘A real page turner, I could not put it down’.  I am glad to say that is how I felt about this book. Worth every penny you spend on it.”
