Breaking tradition in describing Information Technology (IT), also known as Information Systems (IS), this book sets its sights on educating business and technical personnel at all levels on how to bridge the communication and quality gap between their respective areas. Taking action before preliminary planning has taken place costs money, especially when it involves technology. Learn from the experts the time-saving, action-oriented techniques that disprove the tired, dated mind-set that has until now excluded technology from corporate planning. Properly applied, these techniques will transform your decisions into actions that result in the implementation of innovative technology-on time and within budget. Discover methods of blending the desires of technicians-who want the newest technology, often regardless of cost-with that of the business area, allowing both to work in harmony. Successful methods are illustrated.Woodall, Jack is the author of 'Total Quality in Information Systems and Technology', published 1997 under ISBN 9781884015700 and ISBN 1884015700.
