Each season brings a slew of interesting books. This spring is no different. Works from consultants, academics and business leaders dominate the top offerings, covering topics like IT leadership, collaboration, IT careers, customer strategy and innovation.
Top titles include: The Adventures of An IT Leader, by Robert D. Austin, Richard L. Nolan and Shannon O’Donnell. These Harvard Business School’s CIO gurus team with a Cutter consultant to tell the tale of a fictional CIO’s first year on the job and provide important lessons for current and aspiring IT leaders. And, Collaboration: How Leaders Avoid the Traps, Build Common Ground, and Reap Big Results, by Morten T. Hansen, a Berkeley and INSEAD professor who explores the predominant barriers managers face in instilling a collaborative culture and includes tips for breaking through them.
