Publisher's Summary

Agile, Lean, and DevOps approaches are radical game changers, providing a fundamentally different way to think about how IT fits into the enterprise, how IT leaders lead, and how IT can harness technology to accomplish the objectives of the enterprise. But honest and open conversations are not taking place between management and Agile delivery teams.
In A Seat at the Table, CIO Mark Schwartz explores the role of IT leadership as it is now and opens the door to reveal IT leadership as it should be - an integral part of the value creation engine. With wit and easy style, Schwartz reveals that the only way to become an Agile IT leader is to be courageous - to throw off the attitude and assumptions that have kept CIOs from taking their rightful seat at the table. CIOs, step on up, your seat at the table is waiting for you.

Up there with Lean Enterprise

This is a really good interpretation of what Agile and Lean mean for business and in particular CIO's.

You might find it contraversial or I hope thought provoking, a lot of our current systems are about trying to control and constrain IT as if it were a 3rd party and miss the benefits of fully embracing it and using it to the benefit of the customer and business.
