Innovation & Insight 1/1

 Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking, brainstorming, innovating and sharing.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 3 million page views with 7300+ blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. 

The “Digital Master” book series includes 28 books to share insight from the multidimensional digital lens and perceive the multi-faceted impact the digital era upon us is making to businesses and society. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Here is the weekly insight of digital leadership, IT Management, and Talent Management.

Information, Innovation & Interrelationship The digital era upon us is about high velocity, data exponentiality, innovation and people centricity. Information view enhances an in-depth understanding of business flow and catalyzes idea generation. So companies across industrial verticals should transform themselves into the digital business that is based on ‎information, their ability to explore intangible assets such as information and knowledge has become far more decisive to build a competitive business advantage. In reality, information is “gold mine,” and knowledge is power, however, there are the inherent dangers of overloaded information or too much knowledge particularly because of the inconsistencies and incoherence in the body of knowledge that surrounds us. Information savvy organizations apply a framework approach to explore intangible information/knowledge assets and build competitive business advantage for the long term.

Innation With silo setting and knowledge scarcity in the Industrial Age, either individuals or businesses often become so preoccupied with bottom line performance that they lose sight of the human factors that account for it. They didn't pay enough attention to build core competencies and unleash human potential for the long run. Now we step into the knowledge economy and move into the digital era with exponential growth of information and creativity as the most desirable professional quality.

Informative The aim of modern Information Management has often been described as getting the right information to the right person, in the right format and medium, at the right time, in order to make the right decisions. The value of information is qualitative, measurable, and defined uniquely by an organization.

Innovation The digital era upon us is about innovation and people centricity. The organic organization is an interconnected “living” thing that needs to keep growing and expanding. It is recharged via organic innovation, continuous improvement and cultural evolution. An organic innovation is not serendipity, but an interdisciplinary management approach which covers information mining, entrepreneurship, technology transfer, process optimization, etc., and stands in between management, economy, psychology, technology, sociology, and neurology, etc.

IDEA Digital makes a significant impact on every aspect of the business from people, process to technology, both horizontally and vertically. The digitalization flattens the organizational hierarchy and blurs the functional, organizational and geographical borders in the business ecosystem. It is like a gigantic puzzle with many misplaced pieces, you have to put them all in the right places to discover the real meaning and unleash its full potential. You cannot make a true digital paradigm shift without an in-depth understanding of the digital interconnectivity and embracing the multitude of digital maturity.

Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking about 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 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.
