The CIO Leadership is the Center of “Future of CIO”
  1. CIO Leadership/CIO Debates/ (350+ Blogs): The magic “I” of CIO sparks many imaginations: Chief information officer, chief infrastructure officer, Chief Integration Officer, chief International officer, Chief Inspiration Officer, Chief Innovation Officer, Chief Improvement Officer, Chief Insight Officer, Chief Imagination Officer, Chief Interaction Officer, and Chief Influence Officer etc. The future of CIO is entrepreneur driven, situation oriented, value-added, she or he will take many paradoxical roles: both as business strategist and technology visionary, talent master and effective communicator, savvy business enabler and relentless cost optimizer, and transform the business into a Digital Master!

  1. IT Transformation/IT Strategy & Roadmap/IT Performance/KPIs (300+ Blogs): IT is not just to support strategy, IT strategy is an integral part of business strategy. The main problem is that business executives still limit their vision of IT as “IT supports a strategy,” CIOs role as C-level is to contribute to the formulation of the business strategy where new trends of technology will provide strategic business capabilities to the business that will enhance the competitive advantages of the organization. With information and technology interwoven into business strategy, IT will re-integrate into the business, delivering business initiatives derived from corporate strategy. Such effort will just be one that is appropriate to the organizational maturity and culture.

3. Digitalization/Digital Master Tuning (250+ Blogs): Digital Master - Debunk the Myths of Enterprise Digital Maturity was published in Jan. 2015, it is the book to envision the multidimensional impact that digital philosophy, technology, innovation, and methodology will have on the future of business and human society. It received overall great feedback in the IT community and beyond. After publishing, I also wrote more than 100+ blogs to continually advocating the best principles and the next practices to run a “Digital Master” - The organization that has rich digital insight, high-level innovation capability, and maturity, not only to initiate digital innovation but also to drive enterprise - wide digital transformation.

4. Information Management/Analytics/Cloud/Social Computing (500+ Blogs): Information Potential directly impacts business's potential of organization: Potential value of business all depends on how the information will be used again in the future and this is often exceptionally uncertain. Information may never be used again, or it may be used multiple times. Unless you can predict how it might be used again for tangible gain, it is difficult to say what, if any, potential value. The art and science of information management are to optimize information usage and achieve its value and full potential. The purpose of IT organization is to leverage the latest technology trends such as SMAC and ensure the right people getting the right information at the right time and location. 
5. IT Principles/Practices//EA/Capabilities/PM/BPM (350+ Blogs): Organizations today have to manage the large quantity of projects to beat competition and delight customers. Think about how a portfolio platform might look, it includes innovation management, portfolio management, enterprise architecture, business process, the planning aspects of a portfolio, all should make up a platform. They all offer extensive reconfigurability to reflect the way you like to see the portfolio sliced and projects run (flexible or formal process with "forks"), with links to business strategy alignment, scenario planning, program and project life cycles, project initiation, requirements management, risk management, resource management, project controls (progress, finance, quality and change), comprehensive dashboard reporting and tracking of benefit realization.

6. Innovation/ Creativity (250+ Blogs): In recent years, creativity has become a very highly valued skill. Creative people combine existing possibilities to reach more often unexpected solutions. Creativity is an essential building block for innovation in business. It is very important to recognize that innovation is an essential factor for a company’s long-term success. However, becoming a truly innovative company is difficult, due to the risks involved and management skills needed. Innovation is about moving forward. In any business, if you are not moving forward, you are moving backward.

7. Talent Management (200+ Blogs): People are the most invaluable asset in any organization anytime and anywhere. However, the traditional talent management treats people more as cost or resource, less as an asset or capital investment; performance management approaches more focus on measuring behaviors and quantitative results, with ignorance of qualitative assessment about character, mindsets, talent potential, multidimensional intelligence and culture effect. Talent competency is the digital lenses through which people managers ought to assess and manage talent in more strategic, analytical and creative way.

8. Change Management (200+blogs):  Change Management and Strategy Management need to go hand in hand. The goal for change is always to make improvement or innovations happen, and it's a progressive journey to keep business move forward. Change is inevitable, but more than two-thirds of change effort fail to achieve the expected results. The change shouldn't be treated as a singular occurrence when it is an ongoing, continued process and dynamic capability within the organization.

9. Governance/Decision Making/ Quality/UX/IT Vendor Relationship (250+ Blogs): Governance is like a steering wheel, to ensure your project or business as a whole to run towards the right direction. The entire point of any governance discipline is to optimize decision making. Governance, risk, and compliance are not a single process. It is a collection of processes (and other governance mechanisms, such as roles) to improve quality, efficiency, effectiveness, agility and maturity of the business.

Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking and innovating the new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes the time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
