Information and communications technologies (ICT) have become critical in business, government, manufacturing, critical infrastructures, academia, and, literally, everywhere else, and yet, despite the large sums of money involved, ICT remains the least well understood function in an organisation. Perhaps not surprisingly the track record of ICT is mixed. It can be so successful that owners are widely regarded as leaders in their field or it can be a source of concern because of delays, higher than expected costs, disappointing performance, and exposures to risk. Even worse, many situations can only be described as failures. One common factor emerges from the success stories: executives and their ICT people work together for the benefit of their organisation. This jargon-free publication focusses on the main issues relevant to decision and policy makers and discusses what executives can do to participate successfully in the Information Age and achieve successful, sustainable outcomes. Crossing the Executive Digital Divide is available in two formats: a short, booklet form (part of our Information Society Library series) for those who wish to read about main concepts and strategies, and as a longer book for those who wish for more in-depth examination of the issues.
