    Drive Business Performance

    Microsoft strategists Bruno Aziza and Joey Fitts want to help readers straddle the ¿technical¿ and the ¿theoretical.¿ To that end, they¿ve created a practical, useful tool to help companies deliver dependable data, analytical rigor and sound planning. Aziza and Fitts emphasize that your company can¿t win unless you empower your workforce to be fully in control of its own data ¿ the data employees need to make independent choices and advance your organization¿s overall goals. While the authors¿ passion and knowledge shine through, their text might have benefited from some closer editing. It can be lucent, but it also can be heavy reading at times. Because Aziza and Fitts wrote for those who live with data daily, getAbstract recommends their insights to executives, managers, analysts and IT pros.

    A realistic and useful approach

    Unlike many business books that provide information based on theory or how others have done it, this book is a chapter by chapter guide based on actual, hands on use of the subject matter. The subject matter is a MUST read for any business executive or manager that is seeking to elevate their business and themseleves, especially in this economy.
