That's a choice you may need to face sooner than you think. Digital vanguards serve as a guide for what the future may hold beyond current digital initiatives. Adopting a technology-led, business-enabled mindset to drive transformation growth and revenue.
What you got here may not get you there
What pattern types will likely contribute to the two mandates of the CIO in the future? Transforming business operations and driving top-line revenue and growth. Effective innovation leaders will likely have done the hard work to prepare for this opportunity by developing the personal attributes and capabilities, earning credibility with business peers, transforming IT's delivery model, attracting and developing IT talent and investing in core systems. By taking the right steps your company will be able to shape the future of business, become tech-fluent and manifest the business's digital ambition for years to come.
