View all copies of this ISBN edition:

No area of business today is more dynamic or faster changing than information technology. The sharp decline in the cost of computing and the parallel "democratization" of information systems have dramatically transformed the use of information technology in business and altered the terms of competition in entire industries. Radical change does not automatically run in productive directions, however. This collection of distinguished Harvard Business Review articles alerts managers who are not technology specialists to the rewards and risks of information technology and equips them to manage information systems with skill, vision, and confidence. As Peter Drucker notes in his contribution, "The Coming of the New Organization," the new technology is the driving force in the fundamental reshaping of companies. The competent manager in the 1990s will understand the implications of "information-based" or "network" organizations, value-added partnerships, and electronic sales channels. Revolution in Real Time shows managers and executives how to manage information technology actively, not reactively, and gives numerous examples of ways to wring maximum results from the new technology.
