I thought this book was going to be so enlightening at first, but it really wasn't. Preparation: For Jones, preparation is about changing two things: your mindset and your ecosystem. It never gets too deep into any of the paradoxes in any investigative journalist sense, merely documents many anecdotal situations that back up the list of supposed paradoxes that may or may not expound toward anything useful. I suspected this book would be of value to my readers. Remind yourself of your purpose business goal , your priority, investment strategy , your preparation mindset and ecosystem , and what it takes to perform image and exposure to dig deep to keep moving forward.
I thought the book did a remarkable job of capturing the nuanced relationships between situations, roles and context with the anecdotes and guidance that are provided for each paradox. Projects were overdue and over budget. I would gladly read more by this author. Regardless of industry, most major companies are becoming technology companies. It also provides a comprehensive compendium of improvement ideas to consider.
The E-mail message field is required. A few years ago, Jones knew she wanted to as the next stage in her career. It did take three months to get through it. We had no project management discipline, no governance, no career paths, and the team had outdated skills. I told everybody I knew that I wanted to join a board. That could open up some invaluable dialog! But I also had to increase my exposure.
My perspective is as an academic teaching future technology and information security leaders. She applies the same concept to transformational leadership. Publication date is given as 2013. Today, technology is what enables a business to be successful. The only thing i would have liked to see more of are learnings through failures.
So we are on an island. So, great, yay we've learned there are paradoxes, but don't expect this book to convey anything useful about what to do about them. Well organized and well written. It never gets too deep into any of the paradoxes in any investigative journalist sense, merely documents many anecdotal situations that back up the list of supposed paradoxes that may or may not expound toward anything useful. Or are you leveraging traditional technologies for incremental innovation and simply enhancing your current business model? Other than that minor nit, I enjoyed the writing style and most of the topics. This makes for an easy and interesting read. .
The organized, blunt fashion in which she states the paradox, while injecting the perfect amount of humor, is terrific, as are her conclusions. But she soon realized that secretarial work was not for her. To some, the many paradoxes would be off putting but actually saw many similarities with Enterprise Architects. What is your human capital strategy? This book should be considered a must-read for anyone who is a Leader in Information Technology at any level or is thinking about being one. I believe there can be no transformation without re-imagination. Her insights inspire and deliver practical ways to deliver the value their companies so critically rely on.
