Why Read This Report

Innovation sits at the top of CIOs' priorities, but it will be ineffective if the principles of innovation are not embedded in your team's DNA. The challenge is twofold. First, many technology organizations don't have an innovation mindset due to the historical mandate and approach of the team. Second, changing culture is never easy. CIOs must design and then actively work to change the culture. CIOs must implement four sets of activities: make innovation everyone's job; break down traditional organizational silos while exploiting an ecosystem of partners; provide supporting roles and processes; and use client focus to drive innovation.
