The outlines of the fully digitalized world have long been sketched, but the great architectural design with vivid pictures are the ongoing stories. Continuous digital disruptions today allow for “new” energy to flow and bring with it something that would not be born without it. Today’s business leaders are capitalizing and operating on digital ecosystems that are expanding due to the confluence of digital technologies, broader scopes of communication and collaboration, and multifaceted resource alignment. Can they reach the right vista point, look forward, look around, look above, and look underneath, to capture the multidimensional views and enjoy the digital landscape with unique scenes?

Take a Holistic, Integral, and Iterative Approach to Go Digital? We are living in a complex world where inventions, developments, and conflicts are continuously changing and that makes it impossible to have complete knowledge and understanding of many issues facing the business today. The traditional management which is based on a tacit assumption that organizations can be compared to machines as a mechanical system with efficiency driven, inside out process perhaps work in the considerably static business environment, but may not fit for the dynamic digital business with varying characteristics such as hyper-connectivity, hyper-complexity, and interdependence. Business management needs to break down silos, update their “divide and conquer” methodologies, and take a holistic, integral, and iterative approach to go digital.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 2.8 million page views with about 5300+ blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking; 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 time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way for human progression.
