The IT Value Quest How to Capture the Business Value of IT-based infrastructure Theo J.W. Renkema Although the potential of information technology (IT) is beyond dispute, it proves to be very difficult to evaluate its true business value. In the present competitive business arena, modern IT provides the enabling infrastructure for efficient and effective business operations, leveraging business improvements and securing a competitive edge. Capturing the value of this IT-based infrastructure is often considered as the most critical and yet the most complex part of managerial decision-making. Many managers do not try to justify their expenditure or measure whether their money was well spent. This situation has become unacceptable in the light of the rising costs and uncertain benefits of this increasingly important type of business investment. The call for more financial returns and more 'value for money' can no longer be ignored. Making the right investment evaluations will make the vital difference between business success and failure. This book provides a unique perspective on assessing and creating business value from investments in IT-based infrastructure and, more importantly, it shows how the role of IT-based infrastructure is critical to obtain the full benefits of IT.

IT Performance Management addresses the way organizations should balance the demand and the supply of information technology, optimizing the cost and maximizing the business value of IT. In this book several aspects of IT performance management are described. The way this management is executed and the techniques, which should be used, depend on the maturity of the relationship between the IT function and the lines of business of an organization. The foundation of the authors' approach is based on the flow of money and related management objectives. However, performance management is primarily based on perceptions. Therefore, this book introduces the IT value perception model. This model describes four separate levels of perception for the business value of IT. If the demand and the supply of IT do not share the same perception level, the balance is lost, which will lead to friction and inefficiency within an organization. This book is not about what is good or what is bad, but rather is about the 'what', the 'why' and to a limited extent the 'how' of managing the performance of IT. Therefore, the book finishes with a 'back-to-business' section in which a self-assessment checklist, a potential growth path and ten next steps are provided. This enables the reader to start applying this book in his every day working environment immediately. IT Performance Management: * Provides an overview of best practices and available thinking on the subject of IT cost and value * Describes the subject of IT cost and value related to management issues on IT strategy, portfolio management, service management, architecture and sourcing * Addresses differing degrees of maturity between IT and the business, illustrated by case studies

The Global Information Society Wendy Currie The last few decades have witnessed profound changes in the structure, culture, management and technology of organisations. Just as information technology offers both opportunities and threats to organisations, the Internet and its potential for electronic commerce poses fresh challenges. So far, much 'hype' surrounds the subject of electronic commerce, and its possibilities for leveraging business advantage. Whilst governments on both sides of the Atlantic urge companies to invest in Internet technology and develop e-business, past lessons from IT investment have often been disappointing. Likewise, the rapid growth of IT outsourcing in the 1980s and 1990s produced mixed results. Whereas some companies successfully reduced costs and improved their performance through outsourcing, others were permanently damaged as management failed to address important issues relating to the IT strategy and infrastructure. The Global Information Society addresses the phenomenon of the global information society in the context of market, technology, management practice, capabilities and skills, and the role of government. Designed for academics, practitioners and students, this book does not offer simple solutions to complex business problems. Instead, it critically evaluates models, frameworks, debates and observations relating to these five key themes within the global information society.

Abraham H. Maslow was one of the foremost spokespersons of humanistic psychology. In The Farthest Reaches of Human Nature, an extension of his classic Toward a Psychology of Being, Maslow explores the complexities of human nature by using both the empirical methods of science and the aesthetics of philosophical inquiry. With essays on biology, synergy, creativity, cognition, self-actualization, and the hierarchy of needs, this posthumous work is a wide-ranging synthesis of Maslow's inspiring and influential ideas.
