Too generic and not usefull

(Sorry to the author...)
I found this book to be a huge waste of time. I am the CIO of $2Bil+ company and I read a lot of books on IT management and strategy. This book has way too many generalities and does not provide concrete guidance. The book is a few years old and is starting to be a bit dated in term of some of the topics being covered.
