Dubuque, IA (PRWEB) October 7, 2008
Ouellette & Associates' (O&A) new book 'Leading IT Transformation: The Roadmap for Success,' released by Kendall Hunt Professional, a division of Kendall Hunt Publishing , will guide leaders as they transform their workforce and culture to meet the challenges of today's increasingly complex, ever changing business environment. This book is loaded with tangible nuggets and provides practical, action oriented advice that today's IT leaders and their staffs can put into practice immediately.
"There has never been a better time to be an IT professional. While prognosticators have loudly predicted the demise of IT, I firmly believe there has never been a more exciting or auspicious time to be in this profession," writes contributing author Dan Roberts in the first chapter of 'Leading IT Transformation: The Roadmap for Success.'
According to Roberts, President of Ouellette & Associates Consulting, Inc., "To remain viable, IT leaders need to proactively transform their organizations and cultures. They must develop an IT workforce that has the new mindset, skill set and tool set necessary for success, including communication skills, relationship-building, collaborating, managing change, marketing, and negotiating."
Others have written about the changing field of IT, but O&A's approach is unique. IT is written by a team of subject matter experts, seasoned consultants and workshop leaders, who for the first time have committed their insights and experience to paper. Together, they represent more than 200 years of experience in the real-world IT trenches, helping tens of thousands of IT professionals transform how they do business, both individually and organizationally. Because they've walked the walk as IT practitioners, leaders and consultants, they write with a voice of authority that comes from experience.
