Wiley and Microsoft Launch New Line Of Business Books
Publisher John Wiley and Sons announced that it is parterning with Microsoft a new line of business books aimed at information systems executives and corporate decision makers. The new book series will be published under the imprint "Microsoft Executive Circle."
"I'm excited to bring such a well known brand into the Wiley fold," said Robert Chiarelli, vice president and publisher at Wiley. "Microsoft is synonymous with quality, integrity and cutting-edge technology. Microsoft Executive Circle books will show how the interaction between business needs and technological innovation impacts all aspects of global business."
The series is expected to generate six to 12 books a year on such topics as communications, security, data integrity, technological and strategic alignment, performance, value, research, and investments in the future. Authors will come from both inside and outside Microsoft. The books are a strong strategic fit with Wiley's successful list of titles for C-level executives in global corporations.
"Senior executives have asked us to help them bridge the gap between business strategy execution and technological capabilities. By working with John Wiley & Sons, the leader in business publishing, we are investing in exciting new resources to help line-of-business and IT executives speak a common language. Ultimately, we hope this insight assists them in their effort to gain greater ROI on technology investments and grow in their ability to innovate," said Jeffrey James, director of Microsoft's Executive Circle program.
The first book in the new series should hit bookstores in Winter of 2007.
