My new book: Information-Driven Business

After submitting my final draft to Wiley at the end of last year, my wait is finally over!  I have just received one of the first copies of my new book, Information-Driven Business: How to Manage Data and Information for Maximum Advantage.

For many years I have believed that the Information Revolution is real and that we are in the middle of a historic change in business.  I was privileged to work with a number of regular participants of the www.openmethodology.org site to establish MIKE2.0.  I continue to enjoy the opportunity to work in the field of Information Management.

Some time ago, I decided that the techniques that I have used for many years to prioritize business strategy, design business information solutions, and to measure the use and value of information needed to be consolidated in one place.  The result was a manuscript that I’m proud has now been released by Wiley under the title Information-Driven Business.  More details about the book have been compiled at www.infodrivenbusiness.com.

Some people have asked me I went to the trouble of writing a book when we are able to publish so easily on the Internet.  The answer is that while it is easy to get material online almost instantly, a book has an authority and authenticity that reflects the effort required to get through the publishing process.

I hope my book is well received.  Perhaps more importantly, writing it has given me the chance to have my say.  Either way, I will watch the journalist reviews together with your comments on Amazon and other online bookstores with a great deal of anxiety and interest!
