By and large, cost-effective information technology (IT) management is more about people, personal relationships, and corporate culture than it is about the technology itself. Simply put, IT doesn't work if you are surrounded by bad people and stupid processes in a deranged corporate culture. IT's All about the People: Technology Management That Overcomes Disaffected People, Stupid Processes, and Deranged Corporate Cultures explains how to achieve dramatic improvements in service and agility by enhancing the people, processes, and culture within your organization. It details the various roles within the technology management process and supplies authoritative insight into the realities of human behavior--including the range of best and worst behaviors from managers, executives, and corporate culture. Industry veteran Stephen J. Andriole explains the reason behind why many business cases fail and includes helpful insights on new governance models, organic transformation, guerilla budgeting, and open source software. Providing a fresh perspective on the old basics of IT management through a twenty-first-century lens, this book arms you with the methods needed to master the soft art of IT management as well as purchasing, deployment, and technological support.
