The following is an excerpt from an article by Mona Ridder Sunday, October 31, 2004. Mona is the business editor of the Cumberland Times-News. The focus of the book is to help businesses deal with the technology of every day life in the new millennium and it offers the advice in non-business speak.
So many business help books are written in the language of techs and, often, over the heads of the average business person, but Smith has written a non-nerd book for all of us who need to understand the impact of our technology on our businesses.
Written from the perspective of several staff members of a fictional company, the book deals with issues of leadership, management, identity theft, outsourcing and downtime and how they are impacted by trust, integrity and value, or the lack thereof.
The book is the first in the ID10T ErrorsÂ® series of publications, based in Hickory, N.C.
And while it is a lesson for businesses in handling technology security, it is also a reminder that technology is only as good as the people who use it.
Smith delves into the personalities and power struggles of any company in corporate America. This is anywhere U.S.A. where companies need to access and disseminate information electronically and employ people to help accomplish their goals of sales and/or service.
