Innovation Strategies: Part 4 — Organizing for DX Innovation by Using L3D as the Building Blocks
This IDC study explores how IDC's Leading in 3D (L3D) framework can help CIOs develop IT organizations that are optimized for the challenge of delivering DX innovation, integration, and incorporation — from end to end — for their enterprises. IDC believes that for CIOs to become effective innovation partners to the business, they will need to build flexible and responsive IT organizations that possess the key skills and roles that are essential to each stage of L3D execution. This study explores the following issues:How does L3D align an IT organization's resources with the critical business requirements for innovation, integration, and incorporation in delivering DX?What are the key roles and skills necessary to support the business requirements for each stage of delivering innovation from ideation to delivery using the L3D model?How can the CIO best coordinate innovation resources using L3D to ensure that he/she meets the DX needs of the enterprise?"Managing DX innovation is a process of continuously adopting new organizational roles and skills to adapt to external ecosystem changes," says Fred Magee, adjunct analyst with IDC's Research Network. "The challenge and the opportunity for CIOs is to remain flexible about organizational structure and the definition and sourcing of roles across the L3D stages in support of innovation."
