From the Back Cover:

Praise for UNLEASHING THE POWER OF IT

"As a business and IT leader I know that the success of the organization and value delivered by IT is not achieved by me alone, but through the smart and innovative work of my teams and leaders. My role is to grow future leaders and make current leaders successful; their success is my success. This book provides a structured teaching tool for growing and maturing your teams at all levels. Each chapter provides a learning opportunity and creates a common language for communication of ideas, goals, and achievements. The new book builds on previous lessons by including chapters on social media and talent management with the latter being of critical importance for today's changing role of IT."
—Mark Leach, Vice President, Business Technology Services, Cameco Corporation

"Roberts has done an excellent job outlining the critical elements of a collaborative IT environment and pointing out the steps IT professionals can take to become strategic business partners. Unleashing the Power of IT: Bringing People, Business, and Technology Together offers keen insight into ways we can maximize our skills to create value for businesses. The advice in the book is practical and, most important, actionable."
—Barbara Koster, Senior Vice President & Chief Information Officer, Prudential Financial, Inc.

"This book is concise and readable. More importantly, it provides insights and examples to which any IT leader can relate. Anyone who wants to get better, and make their organization better, will find ideas and action plans in this book."
—Don Imholz, Senior Vice President & CIO, Centene Corporation

"During my years as CIO, I have learned that the role is quite complex and success requires close attention to a very broad range of responsibilities. Roberts's new book provides a practical, thought-provoking road map for those IT leaders who are striving for organizational excellence. Bringing people, business, and technology together is the theme of the book and serves as a constant reminder of the balance required by the transformational leader. I highly recommend that IT leaders read and then re-read this book."
—Don Desiderato, CIO & Senior Managing Director, New York Life Investment Management
