Partnering IT and Business Leaders to Create a Digital Vision
This IDC study discusses key stakeholders required for creating a leadership vision for digital transformation (DX). IDC's digital transformation leadership model, Leading in 3D, enables organizations to build a viable, forward-thinking DX vision that incorporates a broad range of skills, perspectives, and organizational knowledge. Pulling together the right committee of senior IT staff and C-suite executives to create the vision is essential for ensuring that the vision aligns with corporate strategy, is viable given organizational constraints, and is well received upon execution. In short, the success of the L3D vision — and the digital transformation initiatives that depend on it — is dependent upon having the right committee members at the table from its inception.Written for CIOs and other senior IT executives, this study provides a four-step process that outlines how to collaborate with other C-suite members to identify, recruit, and prepare stakeholders in the company that are needed for digital transformation. These steps ensure that the vision will be thoughtful and thorough enough to address the complexities of simultaneously promoting the three "I"s of L3D: innovation, integration, and incorporation. Moreover, these four steps ensure that the vision is successfully adopted and achieves its objectives leveraging leading-edge technology to achieve corporate objectives."IDC believes that an essential first step of building a digital vision involves pulling together a committee of C-suite executives and senior IT professionals who have the breadth and depth of skills, perspectives, and organizational knowledge to understand the complexities of executing a L3D approach to DX," says Eric Bloom, adjunct research advisor for IDC's Research Network.
