“The Power of Convergence provides a definitive roadmap to follow for achieving sustainable success—far beyond merely a quarterly outlook. It is a mandate for next-generation leadership.” — Hideo Ito, Former Chairman and CEO, Toshiba America, Inc.; Member, Dean’s Council, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University
“Any organization striving to be relevant and grow must learn to integrate management of technology and business. This is true across all industries and governments. Those that successfully do so create substantial economic advantages that lead to long-term prosperity and success. The best practices of the BTM Framework highlighted in this book unveil that path and provide the steps necessary to create a more agile and innovative enterprise.”— Al Zollar, General Manager, Tivoli Software, IBM
“At some point, every business leader will struggle with the management topics outlined in The Power of Convergence. How they think about these issues, and more important, how they make the right decisions regarding them, is critical to the success of their organization.” — Dr. Krishna Palepu, Ross Graham Walker Professor of Business Administration; Senior Associate Dean for International Development, Harvard Business School
“BTM has pushed us for a standardization of communication, transparency, and visibility at the national level. This book unveils many of these best practices; it is a must-read for every CEO.” — Yves Corvaisier, Directeur Délégué (CEO), CNAV (French Social Security)
“This book shines a bright light on the cutting-edge strategies related to corporate effectiveness and profitability that BTM has provided over the last decade. I highly recommend it to anyone from business school to the boardroom.” — Lawrence G. McDonald, New York Times bestselling author of A Colossal Failure of Common Sense; and Former VP, Lehman Brothers

The two are tied together in a management approach that continuously links business, information usage, and overall rational performance.” — Dr. Donald A. Marchand, Professor of Strategy Execution & Information Management, IMD Business School, Switzerland
