Looking for a good resource...

By John Connell ·
Does anyone know of any good reference books that outline the fundamentals of development processes, Web technologies, etc., but do so in a language and tone geared for someone on the business side with little-to-no background in software or Web technologies? I'm looking for a book or books that I can use as reference after a meeting has gone a little too heavy on the tech-babble.

I think there is the "Idiot's guide to whatever" at the bookstore. When I have a question along the lines of "What the heck was that last discussion about?" I pull one of my senior IT engineers and just ask. They understand that as a VP, I'm not going to "get it" all the time. Either they explain things because they are caring, generous, team playing people or maybe they like to "show off" that they know more than I do. (I know they know more than I do) thats why I'm a lowly executive and they are the "Tech Gurus". Advice? Find a techie who is patient.
