Global leaders and professionals develop many important skills such as learning agility, cross-boundary communication and collaboration, expand their horizon to look at problems holistically and solve them innovatively.

Digital makes a significant impact on every aspect of the business from people, process to technology, both horizontally and vertically. Digital becomes the very fabric of high performing business, being outside-in and customer-centric is the new mantra for forward-looking and high mature digital organizations today.


 Cross Industrial Collaboration

Initiatecrossindustrialcollaboration We live in a global society with enriched knowledge and cultural heritage, diversity of talent and beautiful landscapes. Digital organizations are inherently and intensely complicated with blurred territories, abundant information and frequent disruptions. Forward-looking companies are not just working within the industry, but expanding into adjacent territories, and permeating across industrial boundaries.

Initiatecrossboundaryleadership The world has been interwoven through the internet and the latest technologies, today’s workforce is multinational, multigenerational, multicultural, and multi-devicing. Leadership now becomes more open and trans-disciplinary, influential and innovative. Cross-boundary (cross-geographical, cross-industrial, cross-functional, cross-cultural) leadership is in demand to be able to facilitate and orchestrate the beauty of varieties, multifaceted values, enriched cultures, and gain a profound understanding of the business ecosystem to drive progressive changes synchronously.

The functional, geographical, or industrial borders are blurred, collaboration happens in that space between people in relationships receptively and thoughtfully interacting with interest and caring for one another's needs and activities to unleash collective potential.

Cross-silo or cross-divisional communication is crucial to bridge gaps and close blind spots in decision-making.

Thanks to emerging technologies and abundant information flow, the functional, geographical, or industrial borders are blurred, people are encouraged to break down silos, seek out help, brainstorm fresh ideas, and co-solve existing or emerging business problems collaboratively.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 7 million page views with about 9300+ blog postings 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.
