CIOs these days face a new mandate, lead the organization through digital transformation or a response to lateral digital disruptors. No longer can they succeed by simply be trusted operators. Today’s CIOs need to become ‘business cocreators’ and ‘change instigators’. This means collaborating with other business leaders to drive innovation projects that do nothing less than reshape the organization, its operational agility, and perhaps its mission. But once the business is aligned strategically, the obstacle the hinders success becomes Tech Debt. According to Jeanne Ross at MIT-CISR, only 28% of organizations have succeeded at digitization. In this presentation, we will share 5 steps that you can take to fix the Tech Debt that holds your organization back in Transformation. We, also, cover how Dell Boomi can help you with each of these steps. As Deming said many years ago, change is not required but neither is survival. Today’s CIO in the words of Rosabeth Moss Kanter need to be a “change master”.
Technology change impacts everyone differently. Some people are terrified of technology change, and will do everything in their power to maintain the same phone, computer and processes for as long as possible. They cry foul when their Status Quo is challenged. Nonprofits are different and so are the impacts of today’s technology. Implemented correctly, the right technology stands to benefit the Nonprofits in a variety of ways, particularly their fundraising efforts.
