'Corporate Politics for IT Managers: How to get Streetwise' addresses some of the most persistent problems faced by IT managers which undermine their power and influence in their organisations and which prevents them obtaining seat on the board of directors.
It deals directly with the IT stereotype and offers advice on how to survive and then thrive despite the odds being stacked against the IT manager. Divided into four parts, 'How the IT Manager Gets Streetwise' begins by placing the IT stereotype in context, and proceeds to challenge the IT persons' habitual behaviours of the past, and present ways of rethinking IT services, before concluding with how managers can become "streetwise" in today's organisations.

There are many books on the market telling IT managers how to construct IT and IS strategies, and even more on how to 'run' an IT department or function. However, few deal with the politics in organisations.

'Corporate Politics for IT Managers: How to get Streetwise' equips IT managers with the necessary skills to cope successfully in the political arenas of the boardrooms in today's businesses.

Part of the Computer Weekly Professional Series

Review:

Computer Bulletin gave this book Five Stars.

This practical and informative account of the political jungle to IT managers is presented with humour and cartoons but without descending into an excess of jokiness. The book is not a recipe for reaching the boardroom but packs in plenty of home truths which merit contemplation. If you are aiming for the top, buy it and read it; if you are happy as an IT manager, buy it and read it too: you could learn a lot about your self.
