This new method of managing focuses on networks of small, cross-functional teams to tackle tasks in short cycles, continually adjusting for customer feedback. When done right, even large organizations can learn to act entrepreneurially. In this book, Denning explains how Agile works, provides examples of the method in practice, and shows how to scale it company-wide to become more adaptive and innovative.

The Cyber Security Leadership Handbook For the CISO And the CEO - How to Fix Decade-Old Issues And Protect Your Organization From Cyber Threats by Jean-Christophe Gaillard

The book features a collection of articles written from 2015-2022 on the topic of how organizations can improve their ability to counter threats to the security of their data. With regulations like GDPR and CCPA privacy legislations building up across the U.S. and worldwide, a “when-not-if” paradigm around cyber-attacks has taken root at the Board level. Gaillard convincingly demonstrates that large organizations, and their CEOS and CISOs, must stop thinking of the topic in pure technological terms and address the underlying cultural and governance issues that have been the true roadblocks to robust cyber security. This book is a must-have for anyone interested in learning how a comprehensive, integrated approach can help organizations overcome legacy and current risks and build a robust, adaptive defense against cyber threats in the corporate world.
