Introduction to Business Information Systems


This book by Michelle Nanjad, James Norrie and Mark Huber focuses on IT as a source of business value and outlines the innovative technologies, as well as the innovative ways to use technology, that help businesses excel.

Breaking Through the Project Fog


Written by James Norrie and edited by Michelle Nanjad, this book bridges the gap between executives who develop strategy and decide what projects get approved, and the project managers who have to execute those projects flawlessly.

What our clients say

  • Speechbobble

    Michelle built and ran the entire software delivery practice at leading edge learning and social media startup that went through three rounds of initial funding. “Personable, cheerful, and a true pleasure to work with - Michelle is a mastermind for breaking down complexities and keeping the team focused on moving forward. Moreover, we could always count on Michelle to deliver in the face of constantly changing requirements and demanding client situations.”

    Ryan Daniel Chong, Interactive Product Manager, Rogers Communications, (former CEO of Speechbobble)

  • SkyService

    When SkyService needed a versatile executive to lead business process design for maintenance, organize and drive a complex portfolio of software implementation projects, and manage the Information Technology function in the interim while searching for a new Chief Information Officer, they called Michelle. “I found Michelle to be the most professional technical consultant that I have worked with. I came to rely almost totally on her due to her technical knowledge, out of the box thinking and most importantly, the ability to get the job done.”

    Hilton Reading, Vice-President Infrastructure & Security at MedAvail Technologies Inc. (former CIO, SkyService Airlines)

  • Hachette Book Group (HBG)

    When HBG needed a trusted advisor to assist with and advise about their Project Management Office – recruiting, staffing, processes, methodologies, tools and executive communications, and to conduct a project health check for a $4M strategic initiative, they turned to Michelle. “Michelle’s insights in project management, IT management and staff management were extremely valuable and informed our strategic decision making in many areas. Although Michelle was engaged as a part-time consulting resource, she quickly became part of our New York and Boston teams and provided as much or more value than another full-time resource would have.”

    Ralph Munsen, Global Head of Development, GroupM (former CIO, Hachette Book Group)
