"The control of IT within enterprise systems has an ambiguous pattern of mis-management and associated horror stories for new players. This book confronts the most serious problem facing enterprise managers today with instruction, case studies and solutions. It is a must read and a must use for those seeking to extract top value from the IT investment in a control challenged work place."

"This text is a commendable exposition of enterprise governance of IT by one of the pioneers of the field, Wim van Grembergen, together with one of its rising stars, Steven de Haes. The important theoretical insights presented by the authors are skillfully balanced with practical application in the form of several highly informative case studies. Anyone interested in the governance of IT, the alignment between the business and IT, and the business value of IT would benefit greatly from this exceptional volume."

"The shift from IT governance to enterprise governance of IT is not just playing with words – it represents a significant cultural change – a change that is essential if enterprises are to realize value from their increasingly significant and complex investments in IT-enabled change. This book provides a valuable resource to anyone who believes that we can and must do better."
