Price: $39.99


IT for Business (IT4B) – From Genesis to Revolution is written by service management experts with years of real-life experience, ensuring sensible, practical, and effective advice.

This book reads like a conversation on IT service management. Rather than reinventing traditional IT frameworks or methods, IT4B provides a coherent understanding of digital readiness for your enterprise. It offers insight and coaching, rather than readymade advice. The book aims to:

  • Use well-known service management concepts, methods, and processes to focus on digital innovation
  • Promote a reuse-reduce-recycle approach to improve projects, rather than grow-expand-explode
  • Use the IT4B framework as a lens that will guide all your projects


So, what is IT4B?

IT ‘4’ (for) business is an acronym for the business community to use, and is intended to help the business side of a company determine whether its IT is ‘aligned’ or ‘integrated’ and what is missing.

This book serves as an essential guide for the identification and implementation of IT methods.
