New book on enterprise software selection...

Organizations have been buying enterprise software for decades, but the new software seldom meets expectations. In this book, I examine what goes wrong, why it happens and offer actionable advice on how to solve the problem.

The printed book is now available on Amazon. The Kindle version will follow in a few weeks.
