Advance Praise for “The Next Leap inProductivity” “Adam’s book is a challenge to all the top managerswho’ve stopped caring about IT. His message is simple: If youreally care about IT, you find ways to make IT more productive. Theimprovements you achieve in IT productivity can then be leveragedinto huge leaps in productivity at the enterprise level. This bookoffers a roadmap for translating IT productivity into businessprofit. Adam’s argument is worth reading and worthconsidering as you formulate your IT strategies and plan your ITbudgets.”--Gary Beach, Publisher Emeritus, CIOmagazine “Adam lays the groundwork for a common language that canbe used to bridge the chasms between IT and other essentialcomponents of the business such as finance, product development,sales, marketing, distribution and customer service. Everyone whoreads this book will learn valuable lessons that can be leveragedto improve returns on human capital investments at every level ofthe organization. Adam’s concepts have the potential to boostlevels of confidence and performance throughout theenterprise.”-- Michael Minelli, Co-author, Partnering withthe CIO “These kinds of productivity principles are not meretheory. When we put these same principles into effect, ourproductivity went up more than we had thought possible. And ouremployee morale went up, too. It became easier to write code theright way and harder to make stupid mistakes. This new way ofcreating software makes it possible for us to concentrate on whatwe really want to do here at Cisco, which is to improve theInternet for everybody.”-- Andy Chessin, Senior TechnicalLead, Cisco, Inc.
