Overview

The Information Age has generated an explosion of information and technology. Currently, executives and empowered employees create a wealth of good ideas. But, how can you sharpen your focus and seize the best opportunities? In Information Proficiency: Your Key to the Information Age, author Thomas Buckholtz shows you how to thrive in these challenging times and put your good ideas to work using information proficiency: the effective use of information to define and achieve goals. Dubbed "the information wizard" by InfoWorld, Tom Buckholtz has led the deployment of information resources and systems for the world's biggest buyer of information technology, the U.S. Government. In this engaging book, he shares the groundbreaking concepts and techniques he developed while serving as the Commissioner of the Information Resources Management Service, U.S. General Services Administration, where he directed the implementation of computing, telecommunications, and records management throughout the Executive Branch. Buckholtz shows you how to avoid the common trap of focusing too much on technology. Instead, he concentrates on the crucial products of all organizations - decisions and the implementation of those decisions. "Information proficiency provides the power to accomplish your objectives. The components of this power are quality decision making and incisive implementation."
