"A valuable, practical guide for navigating through ICT turbulence and dynamics. A lighthouse for the human side of ICT."
Erik van de Loo, Director Executive Masters in Change, INSEAD Professor of Organisational Behaviour, INSEAD Business School
"The ICT Malaise is a different and thorough point of view on the dysfunctional approach the world has taken to information and technology. In an era of exponential changes where humans are rendered obsolete at the same pace of technology, it is fundamental to go back to basics on why we lead and innovate in the first place."
Silvio Rugolo, VP, Global Sales, BMC Software, Digital Service Operations
We hurtle ahead with technology, apps, and the newest innovation in a world that already demands a constant online presence and availability. You are included if you quickly adapt the newest technology and excluded if you wait too long.
Information and communication technology (ICT) service providers, suppliers, and customers all try to make sense and make the most money out of technology developments and constant innovation with the help of frameworks, methodologies, best-practice approaches, and models. They continuously improve, align, integrate, and optimize, but unfortunately do not apply the same drive to safeguarding quality.
This book leads the reader along a path of critical thinking, reflecting, and contemplating while offering alternative ways for service providers, customers, and suppliers to interact with each other. In addition, it encourages them to conduct their business in such a way that customers, service providers, and suppliers achieve satisfaction. The author implies a different mindset, a new way of interacting and a surprising approach to the many frameworks, models, and methodologies being introduced ceaselessly.
While reading this book, IT professionals receive practical guidelines for using these newfound methodologies and models to help build and maintain healthy business relations while ensuring quality delivery of products and services. Readers will be surprised by how much more satisfying and less stressful their work environment becomes!
