Isn’t it a tough journey to celebrate 8600 blog postings - to pursue the digital way of brainstorming, innovating and sharing.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 7 million page views with 8600+ 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 innovation leadership, IT Management, and Talent Management to celebrate 8600 blog postings.

Innovation Being innovative is a growth mindset and a proactive attitude. With the mixed bag of new information and outdated knowledge, order and chaos, people must learn through their interactions with the environment continually, generate and share fresh ideas, adapt to changes promptly.

Innovategovernance Due to the overwhelming growth of information and dynamic business environment, there is a shift of governance to focus on enterprise change and improve organizational maturity. Good corporate governance highlights that the board of directors is ultimately responsible and accountable for developing and sustaining the culture for an enterprise to prosper. Corporate governance controlling and enforcement takes a new meaning such as agility, intelligence, and creativity in the dynamic era of digitalization. The corporate board leaders need to evaluate whether today's governance is over-control, not resilient enough to embrace the change, and how to improve governance effectiveness and maturity.

Inclusiveleadership Leadership is about vision and direction; digital leaders today can lead change and harness innovation by practicing open leadership styles and enhancing interdisciplinary management discipline. To make a smooth shift from silo-based traditional economy to hyper-connected knowledge-abundant creative economy, cookie-cutter leadership needs to be updated toward gap-minding, innovative or situational leadership. Great leaders should build their unique set of leadership competency to support the “circumstantiality” between leadership and achievement. Because today’s business workforce is hyper-diverse with multigenerational, multicultural, multi-divicing characteristics, what are emergent traits and how to shape the new breed of world class leaders and managers to harmonize humanity?

Innovativelogic Digital organizations or society are dynamic and ever-evolving. There is a shift from seeing a societal system as a set of interconnected components to seeing a modern societal system as a set of interwoven threads with nonlinear logic as the very clue.

Innatepolicy Generally speaking, the policy is a set of principles for decision making or guidelines to drive behaviors. Policies need to serve a purpose. Top leaders are both policy makers and followers. The corporate board needs to clarify whether the organization ensures policy coherence across the portfolio; or whether the policy-making and governance are effective enough to improve multifaceted value creation of the company.

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.
