A guide to help leaders understand the role that different technologies play in creating shareholder value in their businesses. Creating Value Through Technology will instill in the reader a new-found confidence to challenge and steer their technical colleagues to implement a technology strategy that aligns itself to the overall business aims. The book will also demystify and debunk jargon, acronyms and misconceptions along the way. All too often business leaders cite a lack of IT understanding as to why they don't embrace technology as much as they should and why they feel uncomfortable challenging IT plans. This book aims to help CEOs, business owners, directors and turnaround professionals better understand the role that technology can play in creating meaningful shareholder value in their business. Different technologies impact on different parts of the value chain in an organization, and it's important for business leaders to understand and identify which technology investments will be best aligned with the overall objectives of the business. Creating Value Through Technology provides the simple and proprietary REM Framework, centered around the basic levers of shareholder value creation--Revenue Growth, Earnings Growth and the Earnings Multiplier--in order to assess the potential of different technologies in creating value based on the business' overall strategy.
