Digitization of business interactions and processes is advancing full bore. But in many organizations, returns from IT investments are flatlining, even as technology spending has skyrocketed.

Companies with IT-savvy managers are 20 percent more profitable than their competitors.

Concise and practical, the book describes the practices, competencies, and leadership skills non-IT managers need to succeed in the digital economy.
