Business and IT organizations are finding themselves at a critical inflection point in leading technology-enabled transformation. Senior IT leaders today are expected to understand business models and functional business issues, while their business counterparts are expected to be versed in technology, architectures, and the solutions available to resolve the issues. Charlie Feld predicted this convergence of workflows and roles over ten years ago when he published Blind Spot: A Leader’s Guide To IT-Enabled Business Transformation.
As these organizational borders open, leaders must step outside their traditional roles and work cooperatively to set a vision for the future, build great teams, and deliver with consistency. They must also be personally committed to their professional development to learn how to effectively communicate the future vision throughout the enterprise and create a network of game changers. There has never been a more important time to develop these skills than today.
