IDC PlanScape: Transformative Leadership for Future IT

This IDC PlanScape identifies governance strategies for impact across five critical elements of transformative leadership:Capabilities: Transformative leadership depends on the organization having strength in terms of capacity, automation, skills, system behavior, and technology leverage.Data: Orchestrating digital transformation demands intentional commitment to data that drives value across creation, integration, and use.Ways to work: Transformative leadership leverages partnership, design principles, and embedded metrics to support actionable commitment across the team.Decision making: Mature transformational decision making demands transparency and collaboration to support holistic and shared accountability for change.Executive support: The transformational vision of the organization must be supported by clear and thoughtful executive engagement to the strategic and execution demands of the transformative road map."Less than our best will not meet the needs of our organizations or our industries as we lead going into the digital economy of the future," says Alizabeth Calder, adjunct research adviser with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "And more than ever before, CIOs are embraced as true partners at the table working with CEOs, financing bodies, product and sales strategists, and those charged with delivering measured operational improvements. Maturity in governance, including both leadership and oversight, will be critical to moving from organizational survival to organizational thriving as part of an evolving high-value ecosystem."
