Rate this book
In this hands-on guide to helping leaders effectively steer their organizations through wrenching infrastructure and social changes, author Scott Klososky details the actions that leaders must take to keep their digital plumbing - the all-important technological infrastructure of their organizations - up-to-date. Readers will learn that the survival of their organization depends on continuously adapting and integrating appropriate new technologies, including everything from robust IT systems to social technologies. Looking into the future, the author presents readers with a planning strategy that will enable them to stay ahead of burgeoning technological trends - especially those that will significantly impact their organizations. Klososky deftly combines his discussion of technology with an in-depth, actionable program for workforce integration. By providing essential educational tools, he presents a process for building technology bridges across generations to maximize performance, loyalty, and satisfaction. This call-to-action will energize readers who are frustrated by cloistered IT departments, unproductive lines of communication between Baby Boomers and younger staff members, and an overall lack of technological sophistication. By following this book readers will be able to revitalize any business culture threatened by technology. With experience at every level of the technology business, from assembling computers as a teenager to delivering TED talks in Mumbai, Scott Klososky is a recognized expert in technological innovation.

"For example, people have fought over whether they should use Linux or Microsoft operating systems or whether they should program in the Visual basic or C languages."

The title and cover got me excited ... so I flipped through this, ran across a couple sentences like the one above, just couldn't keep going. Maybe got through 5 pages, total.

High-level gibberish for non-technical folks running big companies. gluck if you're in that position and this book feels novel.

Easily skimmable and certain sections were quite valuable. The various chapters seemed to cover very unrelated topics. Those chapters which covered topics I was interested in were good; I skipped the irrelevant chapters.
