Welcome to my Resources section, a list I maintain of the tools I highly recommend for building and optimizing your technology strategy.  I have tested every recommendation on this page.  Many of the resources listed here are crucial to running my business.

Before digging into the fantastic resources I know and trust an important disclosure:

This isn't your typical management book.  It's a parable that teaches you through the experience of the main character.  Through the story, you'll see your own organization and the changes that are needed for your success.

This is the book for leaders that want more for their companies.  It explains what is needed and how to get there.
