Executive sponsorship is a key ingredient to a successful enterprise GIS.  If you work in government, then there's a new book that can help you gain some executive sponsorship for your GIS program.  It is Smarter Government: How To Govern for Results in the Information Age by former Maryland Governor and Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley.  Give it a read, and since the holidays are coming, this is the perfect time to give this as a gift to the leaders in your government agency.  I have attached the Table of Contents and a Sample Chapter.  Also be sure to check out the companion web site below.
