Leadership and the Computer
IN THIS SUMMARY
In Leadership and the Computer, sixteen of the most innovative top executives in America reveal how a hands-on relationship with their computer is radically improving their ability to lead effectively and competitively. Generally, most people do not consider the computer as anything more than a clerical and administrative tool, but it also works as a supplement to the mind, extending the memory of the species and humankind’s ability to work with ideas. Boone discusses the use of information systems to dispel misconceptions that have been largely responsible for the slow growth of executive computing. Also, the author argues that when properly applied, the computer can serve as one of the most powerful and innovative leadership tools ever invented.
