Digital hybridity means how to strike the right balance of change and stability; innovation and standardization; transaction and transformation. 

The purpose of the book “Digital Hybridity: How to Strike the Right Balance for Digital Paradigm Shift” is to shed some light on how to strike the right balance of stability and changes; being transactional to keep spinning and being transformational to leap forward for making a seamless digital paradigm shift. 

Digital organizations should apply the hybrid management approach, focus on building a diverse, networked, and extended modern working environment in which the powerful digital platforms and computing technologies enable seamless conversations, delayer overly rigid organizational hierarchy, inspire idea sharing and brainstorming, and engage employees and partners to achieve the high-performance result.

Digital transformation is the journey for solving problems caused by "conflict," "out of balance," and “lack of logic.” It has to expand into every dimension of the organization with a structural approach.

From the governance perspective, the digital board needs to adopt a hybrid model and take the holistic discipline with mixed leadership styles for steering the business in the right direction.

Innateneutrality We live in a world with information exponentiality and hyper-complexity. It’s important for business leaders and professionals today to observe deeper, practice independent thinking, be neutral-not to take the side too fast, break through conventional thinking boxes, shape unique points of view, help the business or society to define a robust and rigorous set of needs and solve many complex problems innovatively.

IngredientsofHybridorganization With emergent digital technologies, organizations large or small reinvent themselves to become more agile, flexible and innovative. Digitalization doesn’t mean just tear down all the old things in the previous era, in reality, it means to strike the right balance between the new way and the “old way,” the physical building and the virtual platform, the face-to-face communication and the always-on online presence.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 7 million page views with about #9800+ blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. blog posting. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom, to inspire critical thinking and spur healthy debates. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking and innovating new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it.

It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
