New IT leaders should generally stick to quick wins as they get the lay of the land in their first one hundred days. However, when Info-Tech Research Group interviewed IT leaders on their transitions into leadership, we discovered that in their first 100 days, certain circumstances forced these new leaders to make some long-term changes. Coverage in this note includes:
- Situations that necessitate changes beyond quick wins.
- Preparing the organization for long-term changes.
- Managing the change as it takes place.
- Setting a framework for future changes.
Make sure that you are able to effectively make long-term changes, despite the fact that you’re new to the job or the organization.
