3 Key CIO Priorities in Shaping CultureAugust 13, 2019
The culture of the IT organization is changing dramatically in response to the escalating nature of business demands, accelerated innovation programs, and the availability of technology. CIOs are increasingly interested in the impact of alternative organizational constructs such as multidisciplinary teams, self-organization and functional versatility. To keep up with the pace of technology and stay ahead of the curve, IT organizations can no longer function as an isolated, closed environment focused primarily on technical skills.
Here are 3 key CIO priorities in shaping culture and scaling business transformation and innovation:
- Leave legacy behind and adopt new mindsets for where expertise fits into the enterprise mosaic and accept broader involvement with business stakeholders and colleagues.
- Understand how language, practices and behaviors are constantly progressing and affecting the culture of the IT organization as well as the larger enterprise.
- Lead change to a culture that best fits the enterprise strategy while improving human work contribution and experience.
