Insight 1/15

 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.

Interdiscipline Businesses across the vertical sectors are on the journey of digital transformation. The traditional management based on reductionist philosophy is no longer fitting for the business dynamics full of uncertainty and complexity. Digital management is fundamentally an iterative cycle to design, build, scale and optimize business competency and achieve desired effects under specified performance standards and conditions. The business management needs to gain the multitude of digital perspectives and apply cross domain management styles to empower people, enforce iterative communication, and harness cross-functional collaboration to make continuous improvement, deliver better business results and unleash the full digital potential of the organization.

Influential"oversight” The purpose of corporate governance is to steer the business in the right direction. More specifically, it’s about enforcing decision effectiveness, and getting people, culture, accountability, and performance right. The value proposition of good governance, brand, and compliance should be integrated within and across operations and functions not only from the financial perspective but also from the involvement and signs being displayed inside the organization.

Interdictive With high velocity and frequent disruptions, you may not be able to foresee specific instances of futures, but you can imagine general classes and positions to define the landscape with its risks and opportunities, take a broad range of perspectives, shape or mitigate what could be occurring. The goal of the business foresight and forecast is about predicting what will happen and step further - what shall you do upon it; the interdictive analytics keeps you alert about what you should avoid doing. Prevention is superior to fixing.

Inner-interdependence The digital business today is not just working within the industry, but permeating a cross-ecosystem which is dynamic, continuous, interdependent and interactive. Imagine the organizational complexity that comes in due to very characteristics such as less structure, rules and regulations, diversity, volatility, ambiguity, unpredictability, nonlinearity, hyper diversity, and increased flux working and impacting together. How to apply emerging digital technologies and nonlinear business management disciplines to build flexible businesses?

Unpuzzle Digital makes a significant impact on every aspect of the business from people, process to technology, both horizontally and vertically. 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.

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.
