The traditional technology-first, business-second CIO is currently not being involved in planning for business transformation. However, most business transformation nowadays is largely about technology. This blueprint will help you elevate your stature as a business leader and empower you to lead transformation by following our methodology:
- Assess whether you are ready to lead transformation.
- Build critical business partnerships.
- Develop the capability to transform.
- Shift IT's focus to the customer.
- Adopt a transformational leadership approach.
- Sustain the capability to transform.
Don't approach business transformation in an ad hoc manner and don't wait to be asked – make it your mandate to lead change.
