If you lead technology for your company, you know there are big changes in the business environment. Transformation is being demanded. It can’t be ignored.
CIO’s need to lead the charge or risk getting left behind.
Business leaders anticipate dramatic change in all aspects of their operations over the next three years, according to new research from Harvard Business Review Analytic Services. You can download a copy of the report, Business Transformation and the CIO Role, at the HBR website. Some companies are accelerating this change by committing to IT-enabled business innovation as a core strategy.
To understand just how massive the changes will be, consider this: 70 percent of these “innovation accelerators” about a third of respondents expect the ways in which they engage with customers to be transformed in three years, rating it eight or higher on a 10-point change scale. That’s right: 70 percent. Sixty-four percent anticipate that same degree of change in their products and services, their business models and the ways employees work.
