Recently, I had blogged about ROI taking on a new definition – Return on Information. In a similar vein, the title CIO (Chief Information Officer) is long overdue for a new definition as well. The meaning of information has evolved and has a lot more significance today — just ask Big Data!

The new definition of ROI: Return on Information

Given a choice, would you rather see data presented in raw form, as numbers in a spreadsheet, or as a pie chart or scattergram? The beauty of charts and graphs is that they paint a picture much faster than raw data can. And those pictures can help you connect with your organization’s business goals and enable you to drive business critical decisions—faster.

The continuing rise of the social enterprise

What was that thing before the enterprise-level social network called? It was meetings, personal calls from salespeople or perhaps even the Christmas and summer party right? These “were” the various means that we used to talk with each other and our customers before we were connected online it seems.

Of course these channels for interactivity still exist. Enterprise social networking merely seeks to augment our “personal” experiences, as we also seek to get more value out of every personal engagement as and when it happens.

Impending inevitability

In my last post (“3 keys for successful management of organizational change”) In my last post, I wrote about why it’s so important to have a management of organizational change (MOC) program in your organization. Today I want to talk about one of the fundamental elements you need for a successful change: leadership.

I’ve worked for years helping CIOs and organizations transform their organizations. And in my experience leadership is the #1 thing that’s important if you want to achieve any form of change.

Re-reading a book I received a couple years ago, I found this expression “walk the escalator”. The book is titled “Jump the Curve, 50 essential strategies to help your company stay ahead of emerging technologies” and written by futurologist Jack Uldrich. He points out that, despite the fact the escalator was created to help us reach the next floor faster, most people stand on the escalator, actually taking longer to get there.

Seven ways to find out if that new job is right for you.

Blog-post by, ,

Maybe, just maybe, the job market is finally beginning to improve.  As I write this the headline on CNBC is that jobless claims last week were down by 13,000.  There is a less formal measure of improvement in the job market that I am personally beginning to observe.  Since the first of the year, for the first time in many months, I am beginning to get calls from some of my friends in the recruiting business who are looking for referrals.  I am also hearing from former colleagues and employees who are re-entering the job market and are seeking references and/or advice.&nb
