Leading in 3D: Incorporation and Talent Management — Optimizing Existing Operations
This IDC study discusses talent requirements related to IDC's Leading in 3D (L3D) digital transformation leadership model. Written for CIOs and senior technology and human resources executives, the study discusses talent requirements for the "incorporation" dimension of IT leadership. This dimension is concerned with leveraging and optimizing an organization's ongoing, existing information technology and enterprise processes. Incorporation plays a critical role in the L3D model: It supports organizational stability, optimization, and efficiencies by effectively maintaining the company's traditional datacenter operations and production management. This study identifies common talent deficiencies encountered in the incorporation dimension and the appropriate training measures needed to supplement the skill sets of current talent. Moreover, this document examines challenges that IT leaders should anticipate as they leverage and refine existing operations and steps that can be taken to mitigate these pressures from a talent planning perspective.This study is concerned with IT talent and skills management, leading in 3D, and worksource transformation."Given the technical nature of the core incorporation activities, soft skill training is often overlooked from both business and budgetary perspectives.
