Dr. Seligs book on this topic is a great resource for all IT practitioners and brings together every critical aspect relating to IT governance. This book lays out a roadmap to executing within a solid governance model. It looks at all aspects of establishing, marinating, growing and sustaining an IT ecosystem. The combination of case studies and disciplined approaches to building well structured processes, committed leaders and change agents will help the board, executive management and most of all, CIOs and IT professionals think through what has worked, what can work and how to deploy IT governance successfully. I very much enjoyed reading the chapters. I think you have a great book and I look forward to reading it when it comes out.
