Jeff's book was insightful and very useful to determine how an organization can transform their business by understanding the issues underlying IT management challenges and the governance framework to determine and manage through the IT investments that can enable transformation. Jeff's knowledge based on his experience and research provided me great insights for policy and management as a former portfolio manager at the U.S. Office of Management and Budget and Federal CIO. --Steve Galvan, Chief Information Officer, U.S. Small Business Administration, LinkedIn, March 9, 2009
