This work provides decision-makers with information on long-term "business-directed" technology. It bridges the gap between CEOs and chief information officers, and shows how to synchronize business goals and technology goals. The work provides: information on "Technology 101" - the basics, the techno-terms and their relevance to the business environment; guidance on getting the most from technology advisers, inside and outside the company; and real-world tales of 25 successes and 25 disasters, which reveal clever and fatal moves in information technology.

Not so long ago, it was considered a mark of status to be called a "techno dolt." These days, with kids more computer literate than many business executives and with the often-dreaded information superhighway well under construction, a comprehensive understanding of how high tech and business interrelate is mandatory. And Wang, former CEO of a software company, tries his best to articulate why and how CEOs need to be on intimate terms with their CIOs. Much of his philosophizing concerns Americans' resistance to change and the resulting "disconnect," or inability to tie information technology into the very foundations of the business. The first two thirds of the book deals with the benefits of computers and how to integrate them; the last part consists of a streamlined vocabulary and discusses the implications of such terms as network computing and application development for the corporate U.S. Unfortunately, the author's jumpy narrative and dry tone inhibit readability, and the liberal references to his consulting firm can be jarring. A great premise and promise--if readers can wade through the delivery. Barbara Jacobs
