As enterprises (and their CIOs & IT organizations) struggle with timely responses to new, escalating, digital competency requirements, the need for speed in creating digital capabilities has become critical. Many have experimented with two-speed, bimodal approaches and found them insufficient; at best, they drive CIOs to compound technical debt that will bankrupt the IT organization and hamstring the enterprise down the road. Findings from IDC research show these approaches create new silos and points of contention that make the IT organization less cohesive, inconsistent, and less able to deliver - damaging leadership's credibility.

Every IT executive must take actions to ensure the IT organization is an effective partner in their enterprise's Digital Transformation. How we enable innovation with the business while driving operational excellence with existing IT systems is the imperative. The profound challenge of Digital Transformation is to selectively infuse innovation (from our Innovation Incubators) into the scale and breadth of the (at-scale) enterprise. Successful Digital Transformation leadership requires a third discipline: Integration - the art of managing the continuous exchange of lessons learned from existing, at-scale, operations with the bright sparkling innovation of the Incubators.

Learning from the Digital Thrivers (identified in recent IDC research), we will share IDC's Leading in 3D leadership model which equips CIOs and their teams to simultaneously:

  • Innovate within a cross-functional partnership to create digital innovation
  • Integrate new technology platforms into stable, scaled, business services
  • Incorporate new skills, techniques and culture into the existing fabric of the broader, at-scale enterprise.

In summary, Digital Transformation is a team sport; now is not the time to divide IT but unify and leverage everyone in the face of new business and technical challenges. Please join us and discover the critical steps to Leading in 3D.

Key Takeaways

  • Two-speed technology leadership models -- lacking an intentional process to leverage learnings between their at-scale operations and innovation incubators -- undermine an organization's medium-term and long-term success
  • Two-Speed IT leadership models undermine the effectiveness of IT sourcing, talent management, project delivery and organizational culture.
  • IDC's CIO leadership model, Leading in 3D, empowers the IT organization to be an effective partner in the digital transformation of the business.
