Many years ago, when I was doing research and planning the content of my new book, IT Management Models, I met an old colleague and friend for lunch. To collect notes and image ideas for the book, I carried a small journal with me dedicated to this project.
I showed him the journal and described the book that I planned to write. The journal had a single page with a crudely drawn image on it for each IT management model I planned to write about. At this point there were probably around 20 models.
Paul looked through the book and quickly said, “If you’re going to write a book like this, you need to include ‘Bite the Head of a Frog.’”
