Managing IT as a Business: a Survival Guide for CEOs

This book is a good overview of things a CIO should consider to make the CEO’s, and the company’s, life easier. I scanned three images from the book to save because they felt important.

These are example business value measures for IT given a type of technology investment.

This diagram indicates what audience should be interested in which set of metrics.
Lastly, this diagram shows how standards work.

Its interesting that all these diagrams show up at the end of the book; this book definitely builds from small beginnings to big conclusions. It also stresses the importance of understanding where the money goes (IT spend), which is hard at most large companies, and then ways to manage that spend to provide value. It also shows that the position of
the CIO has moved from a technology position to a business position.
