George Westerman's book "IT Risk: Turning Business Threats into Competitive Advantage"

This new Harvard Business School Press book is based on research conducted by MIT's Center for Information Systems Research and Gartner. It will help companies focus on the most pressing risks and leverage the upside that comes with vigilance. Traditionally, managers have grouped technology risk and funding into silos. "IT Risk" outlines a new model for integrated risk management, which identifies three core areas that can be developed to eliminate the problems that silo strategies create. This book offers specific ways to make the most of this newfound advantage. And because IT risk is the responsibility of all senior executives - not just CIOs - this book describes the tools and practices in language that general managers can understand and use. George Westeman, the lead author of this new book, presented his work in the CITGE meeting in March of 2007.
