Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Yoong (Managing IT Professionals in the Internet Age) assembles the work of 32 field specialists to determine best practices for the emerging digital business community, which requires effective collaboration among globally dispersed, culturally varied, and previously unacquainted individuals. Seventeen essay-style chapters are divided into four major segments: management approaches, behavior patterns, training outcomes, and promotion of trust. The perspectives are truly global, with contributors hailing from Europe, the Pacific Rim, and the United States. Although not a conventional, illustration-studded management guide, this offers concrete managerial advice for an era when project leaders must inspire cooperation among many competing personalities, cultures, and interests.
