5 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Making IT Count: From Strategy to Implementation" focuses on the practical elements of delivering Information Technology strategy. Studies regularly show that over half of Information Technology strategies are never implemented, or are unsuccessful in delivering the desired results, and that a significant percentage of strategies implemented were never in the original plans. The linkage between strategy development and delivery needs a very clear focus; this is the key topic that the authors address. The book highlights eight major fallacies in managing IT, and eighteen better practices. It then details how to draw up strategy, instigate navigation techniques and make sourcing decisions. Change and delivery are a major focus, as is infrastructure development. Caselets and full length case studies of organizations such as General Electric, Siemens, Colonial Mutual, Charles Schwab, Macquarie Bank, ICI, United Airlines, Norwich Union, Walgreens and Dell and have been included to show how strategies have been successfully implemented and managed. It shows practitioners how to actually carry out, develop and implement an Information Technology strategy.; It contains "caselets" and full case studies of recent successful implementations of Information Technology strategies by organizations. Authors combine a wealth of experience and expertise to provide practical guidance to professionals
