Reshape IT for Digital Transformation

Steve Andriole

IT can be a powerful force in helping organizations go digital. But many CIOs need to overhaul their own organizations first. This 10-day assessment will help you position IT to drive DT.


Navigating Business Transformation Change

Leaders who implement digital transformation through a top-down approach, consultant-led approach, or IT-led approach often ignore the conditions that prompted the need for digital transformation in the first place. They decide how to solve the problem without considering the organizational dynamics, behavioral habits, and culture that created the problem. In a rush to make a significant change, leaders decide to postpone dealing with human issues until after critical decisions are made and the transformation is underway. This approach spells failure.

The Power of Combining Qualitative Assessment with Quantitative Analysis

The fact of the matter is, often times you are at loss as to how to improve your software. You know it needs improving because you can identify the symptoms -- perhaps poor business results, late delivery, inadequate quality or low productivity -- but their root cause is not so clear. What's more, the cause is often the subject of ruthless debate amongst your superiors, peers, and subordinates.
