Isn't a tough journey to- celebrate #11,200 blog postings - to pursue- the digital way of brainstorming, innovating, motivating, story-telling?

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 10 million page views with 11,200+ blog postings in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. 

The “Digital Master” book series includes 29 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.

Initiative In today's “VUCA” business circumstances, there's nothing to be done about an uncontrollable situation, accept vulnerability, but do your best to manage uncertainty. Up to the next level of organizational maturity, businesses not only need to adapt faster but have to accelerate and create change momentum. It’s important to keep evolving and gaining broader views, ask tough questions and dig deeper about the cause & effect of complex issues, discover unexpected connections between the business and its rich environment, take alternative paths and manage an iterative continuum smoothly.

Initiatives Change is the new normal, for each company attempting to deal with these changes, there is a different path to follow, one size doesn't fit all. But lessons learned are also important to discover patterns, develop best practices, and improve business efficiency. In the same circumstances, whatever the activity, there is one best way of performing it; one way that uses the least resources takes the least time and still meets quality standards; that is the best practice. Every organization should strive to explore the "best practices," continue to develop the next practices institutionalized across the organization aspirationally for achieving high performance.

Initiativesofanavation We live in a complex business ecosystem with a high degree of unpredictability, ambiguity, and increasing speed of changes. Businesses today face fiery competitions, constant disruptions, and more demanding customers. Information confluence means breaking down functional silos or geographical borders, streamline idea flow, analyze quality information, generate differentiated value, and build business innovation strengths and capacity.

Innerguidance Nowadays, businesses have to deal with the unprecedented level of uncertainty and change, there are some clearly defined guidelines, or even the "old school" rules people across the organizational hierarchy should follow to operate cohesively. To really add value, those guidelines need to be grounded in the context of the organization expressing them, and instruct people’s attitude and behavior in order to run a high-performance organization.

Innovation The view of the world has many dimensions, these dimensions interact and mutually influence each other. The root of our differences is in the different perceptions and the lenses we use to perceive the world, with respect to societal progression. Being real is an authentic thing. We need to make a conscious effort to ensure that our words are congruent with our thoughts and actions. That is what gives resonance and credibility. If we are unable to think or act independently; discern what is important beneath the surface or what makes sense adequately in a situation, we are not good enough to make a real influence..

Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking of new ideas; sharing and innovating. 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.
