Regaining a Competitive Edge with New Management Techniques from Information Age Management

Share Article

In a fresh new book, Information Systems veteran Jason Cotman invites managers and companies to increase productivity by embracing agile strategies modeled on the behavior of successful startups.

At a time when the Wall Street Journal claims that “Some Firms Struggle to Hire Despite High Unemployment” (Whitehouse, August 9, 2010) and the National Federation of Independent Business's “Small Business Growth and External Impediments” report states that “Sixty-one (61) percent of those surveyed said the lack of skilled employees is an impediment to growth,” (NFIB.com, November 2011) comes a no-nonsense how-to for business owners, managers, and CIOs - Information Age Management: How to Increase Productivity by Getting the Best Out of Contractors, Vendors, Telecommuters, and Other Geeks in a Rapidly Changing Workplace (978-0-9834840-28, ePub; 978-0-9834840-0-4, Kindle, $8.99).

In his dynamic new book, Jason Cotman makes the case that personnel and productivity problems can be solved by understanding that in a world where the services we use every day are becoming more flexible and dynamic, companies must become equally flexible and dynamic to stay competitive. Rounding out the text are full-panel comic illustrations and a technical appendix that is a must-read for all but the most up-to-date professional technologists.

What makes this book unique is the insider information gleaned from successful startups. Combining a focus on profit with an eye to the writing on the wall, Jason Cotman leverages his fourteen years in Information Systems to present a management paradigm that nurtures creativity while upholding traditional business values. In so doing, he challenges the conventions of a nine to five world at a time when the demands of an “always on” culture require adaptation or oblivion.
