From the Inside Flap:

Each year billions of dollars are wasted on ill-conceived or poorly executed plans to incorporate information technology into business practices. Often there is a wide gap between the visionary strategies a company aspires to and the operating performance an enterprise actually attains.
In this much-needed book, Dennis Severance and Jacque Passino-- two of the country's foremost experts in the field of information technology-- show how information-based business transformation projects are actually major organizational change events. To help managers meet the challenge of these events, the book outlines an innovative framework of organizational change that places the obstacles to change into a context that can be effectively addressed. The authors describe the dimensions in which a business and its operations might change as a result of strategic choices and then define the sequence of activities that can be put in place to accomplish these dramatic changes. The authors also offer solid advice for general managers who must get at and eliminate the root causes of implementation failures.
Throughout the book, Severance and Passino use a hypothetical case study (GMI) in which actual facts and events from ten corporate research sites have been blended together. This case offers a succinct presentation of situations, issues, and dilemmas that businesses have uncovered on a recurrent basis when implementing information technology systems.
