Inspirational Insight 1/29

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

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 5 million page views with 7500+ blog postings 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.

Inspiring Intrapreneurship Intrapreneurship is about creating a new venture within established organizations to leverage the startup culture for catalyzing innovation. The great intrapreneur leaders can envision how abundant information and emerging technology trends impact on the business direction and how the exponential growth of information becomes the time-intensive piece of digital innovation. Intrapreneur-leaders deploy new ideas, new processes, and new adventures to adapt to change, take generative, iterative, integrative, and holistic approaches, and balance innovation with other organizational priorities.

Intelligent-Intentional-talk The great communicators are the high-quality leaders or professionals who can communicate objectively with strong logic, clarity, and understanding; the great communicators are the great artists who are fluent in creative expression or metaphorical description. Communication is both art and science. How to set principles and develop practices to improve communication effectiveness and build communication competency?

Interlogic With unprecedented uncertainty and high velocity, business problems become over complex and interdependent. The most obvious symptom of business distress is the widespread problem of incoherence. In practice, there is always a temptation to use simple linear logic to understand highly complex or nonlinear business problem-solving scenarios. People have to make a huge effort to get beyond rational linear thinking, apply interconnected logic to uncover hidden clues and systematically define and estimate, thus plan any problem, project, and phenomenon, regardless of its size to improve problem solving effectiveness. There are different kinds of pontificators about logical reasoning:

Informants The World now becomes more advanced, complex, hyperconnected, and interdependent, with exponential growth of information. In fact, information is one of the most invaluable assets and the time intensive piece of innovation in contemporary organizations. The challenge for digital leaders and professionals is whether they can provide quality information, how to discern information they trust from information overflow, discover how and where to find valuable information, not just the information being fed. So they can become the true information master-“informant” or “informationer” to provide and use information skillfully.

Ingredient Culture is a collective mindset, attitude, and habits that could be considered part of the people skills/competencies component to model a business capability. Strategically, your culture guides and informs “how you do what you do and should point you to why you do it.” A high performance culture enables an average strategy, but a negative culture perhaps sinks a good strategy. Culture is soft but there are multiple hard ingredients in it. It’s a tough element to lift your organization up to the next level of digital maturity. Technically, corporate culture is created out of the systems, processes, human capital, organizational hierarchy, business development, and strategy design of the organization.

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.
