New CA Press Title Offers Strategies to Bridge the Gap Between IT and Business


Steve Romero Authors “Eliminating ‘Us and Them’: Making IT and the Business One” Latest Release From CA Technologies

ISLANDIA, N.Y. - CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced the release of the latest book from CA Press: “Eliminating ‘Us and Them’: Making IT and the Business One.” The new title, written by the company’s IT governance evangelist, Steve Romero, challenges conventional wisdom on what it takes for IT organizations to succeed.

“Eliminating ‘Us and Them’: Making IT and the Business One” presents theories and ideas around IT governance, provides key components of successful process management, and demonstrates the direct relationship of behavioral management as significant factors in the success of IT.

“I have spent time with C-level executives, VPs, directors, managers, group leaders, and supervisors and their teams, as well as program and project managers, analysts, and specialists,” said Romero. “In almost every case, I have encountered an ‘us and them’ relationship between IT and the business. And, while IT-business alignment can do much to address this problem, the cause is often what enabled the relationship in the first place: a lack of governance. This book offers practical solutions for the enterprise to bring IT governance to the forefront.”

The concepts Romero presents reflect the recent changes in the organization’s view of the role of the IT department. Almost every organization recognizes the need to establish sound IT governance, yet many are still at a very early phase in implementing the discipline.

This book challenges the traditional approaches and strategies for running IT organizations and presents three areas of focus that contribute most to the shift from an alienated and oft-despised department to a key component in making the organization succeed. These areas include:

• An in-depth understanding of IT governance.
• A deep dive into process and process management - a discipline gaining recognition within the enterprise with formal organizational constructs and investment.
• A case-study view of how an enterprise can establish, promote and instill the values that foster the behaviors of every person in the organization, with the intent of influencing their ability to realize enterprise goals.

Romero is a recognized expert with over 30 years experience in IT governance, project and portfolio management, and business process management. He has presented at hundreds of events and visited companies worldwide espousing the approach in this book.

“Eliminating ’Us and Them’: Making IT and the Business One” is now available from and other booksellers worldwide, and a summary is available at
