IDC PeerScape: Leading in 3D — Practices for Accelerating IT-Business Collaboration in Organizational Development
This IDC study details a set of recommended practices CIOs are successfully using to encourage deeper, more effective partnerships with business units, especially during the turbulent times of digital transformation. This study enables senior IT executives to broaden the IT group's understanding of business strategies, deepen IT's working relationships with other divisions throughout the company, and widen career paths on both sides of the IT-business divide."Broadening the IT group's understanding of business strategies and deepening its working relationships with the rest of the company are critical moves in developing new skills and enhancing career paths on both sides of the IT-business divide," says Maryfran Johnson, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Program (IEP). "The companies profiled in this study have shown success in creating hybrid IT-business roles to accelerate cross-functional collaboration, expanding team diversity to broaden business perspectives and spark greater innovation, embedding IT units in business operations to deliver faster results, and making IT more 'approachable' to the rest of the business."
