That approach might have worked for previous business leaders, who executed against multiyear business strategies.
But in today’s lean, startup environment, the slow-and-steady approach no longer applies. Businesses want to be able to turn on a dime, utilizing agile and “lean startup” methodologies, and delivering new products to market in days to weeks, rather than months to years.
And they want their IT strategies to pivot with them, or even ahead of them. As companies embrace digital transformation, they’re looking to their IT professionals to lead the way. To do that, IT leaders need up-to-date tools and processes for crafting strategic dashboards that are dynamic, responsive, and aligned with business needs.
