Two logical leaps

Two "quantum leaps" can occur when IT is properly understood and properly utilized by top management.

The first such quantum leap is a radical improvement in the productivity of individual programmers and programmer teams when they build software the proper way. The second quantum leap is a radical improvement in the productivity of the entire enterprise that can arise, with proper executive action, after the first leap has occurred.

This second leap is the key to potentially huge improvements in efficiency, productivity and profitability.

The Next Leap in Productivity is the first book to tackle the sticky issues and incredible potential of enhanced IT productivity from the enterprise business perspective.

Audacious, visionary and provocative, The Next Leap in Productivity is an executive guide to the future of information technology.

IT is to commerce in the twenty-first century what wind was to the Royal Navy in the eighteenth century, what coal was to the Industrial Revolution, what philosophy was to the Enlightenment, and what art was to the Renaissance.

IT is essential and indispensable. Not only is IT central to every organization, it radiates through every part of the organization. IT touches everything. IT is everywhere.

In this brash and irreverent book, theoretical physicist Adam Kolawa poses crucial questions such as

  • What would happen if software could be created so quickly and so easily that it could be considered essentially "disposable?"
  • What would happen if the techniques of Deming and Juran were applied to software development?
  • How can companies benefit from radical improvements in software development productivity?
  • Can better software save the world?

The Next Leap in Productivity offers a compelling vision of a future world in which human creativity is translated effortlessly into software, heralding a new era of incredible technological advances.
