In Strategic Technology Risk, Pat McConnell examines the topical and important area of strategic technology risk management (STRM), or the risks posed to a firm by a failure to integrate technology into its strategic plans and business operations. The book will improve the management of technology risk within organisations by focusing on the processes of developing technology strategies that are totally embedded in corporate strategies.
The book is practical, rooted in real-world case studies and research into technology strategy development and risk management.
