Josh, king of Ulster held a feast in Armagh. King Leon, king of Leprechaun land held a feast at the same time. Leon was six and a half inches tall, half an inch taller than the rest of his people. He boasted and said. “Have you ever seen a king superior to me?” They all said they had not but David hearing such boasting laughed out loud. The king stopped choking with rage. “Why do you laugh?” he said, “because I know of one province in Ireland and if one of them cam alone here tonight he could take from you and your people all your wealth.” 

David was arrested but said to the king “as a result of the hands placed on me here tonight you will be forced to spend one year in Armagh and you will not leave it until you have left the best of your wealth and jewels behind with the Ulster king. Misfortune will befall because I will be kept in the house of Josh the Daring. I will swim in a goblet of wine and be almost drowned. Give me three days and three nights and I will go to Armagh and if I do not bring back proof you can do with me what you will.”

David goes to Armagh and returns with Aodh a dwarf in Ulster but a giant in Leprechaun land. King Leon has to spend a year in Ulster and the leprechauns declare war on Ulster to get him back. They dry up the wells, dry out the cattle so they have no milk and cut the ears off the heads of corn.

A magic horse coloured yellow. with purple legs transports Leon, the Leprechaun KIng and his queen Anna. He can travel on land, sea, and and and can arrive before he departs. The horse extends by the number of people on his back.

Organizational executives must change the way they think about how to invest in and manage IT if they want to get lasting value from computer-based innovations. The old way of thinking has not served organizations well. They continue to experience high levels of technological and operational failures even though they apply a wide variety of industry best practices. The rapid pace of technological advancement has tended to hide some fundamental problems that have existed from the start. These involve, not the technology only, but also the management and application of that technology. The human and organizational factors have not kept pace. They have remained relatively static and, to a shocking degree, ineffective.
As a result, the IT department in many organizations has remained a breed apart. Communication between IT and the rest of the organization is fraught with misunderstanding. This leads to failures, recrimination, and, sometimes, wholesale changes which fall well short of their goals. The authors wrote this book because they wanted to help both business and IT to shift their focus from technology project implementation to that of value realization.
In The Value Imperative readers will be introduced to a new business model called The Agricultural Model created by the authors for managing IT in organizations. This innovative model will help you learn how to change the mindset of people in your organization about how IT should be invested in and managed; key considerations for ensuring that business value is delivered from IT investments; how to measure that value that has been delivered and whether there has been effective return on the investments made; and finally the authors challenge business and IT managers to focus on the business value that customers seek which will help companies.
