Keeping up with the digital revolution
The digital revolution is deeply affecting the way we live, consume, work and interact with one another. Not only do companies have to revamp their operating models and adopt to a changing market environment; CIOs must also upgrade their arsenals and come up with new strategies, tactics and tools that help them build a purposeful digital enterprise. The need for a transformation is not an option – it’s an inevitable requirement for businesses and executives alike.
Research shows that leaders are critical to the success of any digital transformation effort across an organisation. In other words, change doesn’t happen out of the blue, simply because somebody proclaimed it. It’s a massive team effort that comes to fruition when a charismatic leadership team provides vision and purpose, and spearheads the march.
This means that the CIO job is changing.
