Review:

The role of IT is changing as businesses depend more and more on technology as a critical component to their success. This Business Edition of the IT Manager’s Handbook series is targeted to help IT leaders make this transition possible, and provides new guidance on how an IT leader can help transform into a business partner.--Jim Chilton, Chief Information Officer, Americas - Dassault Systemes

After learning how to manage a team of developers the hard way – making my share of mistakes in the real world – I now wish I had read some books on management before entering the workforce. This book provides a clear, easy-to-use resource for a technical person who is moving into management. It weaves in new concepts such as Web 2.0 and social engineering in a way that communicates in a straightforward manner to both technical and business people. This text should be required reading for technical staff to communicate the needs of a business – and it will be required reading for my development teams.--George M. Stragand, Director of Software Development, ClickFox

"Overall, the IT Manager Handbook, the Business Edition, is a good introduction to the many challenges of management...The book provides the reader with a realistic approach to managing IT teams and a dozen of useful checklists, giving the new managers the necessary foundation to establish good practices and the business acumen they need to be successful in their careers."--ACM SIGSOFT Software Engineering Notes
