Take the Risk, Then Reap the Reward
IT is becoming a very risky business. That’s because risk-taking is a requirement today if IT and the business are going to succeed. Complacency and status quo are no longer tolerated in an industry moving so rapidly and ushering in a new generation of tech-savvy millennials. Standing still or overanalyzing potential outcomes are, in fact, the enemies of IT leaders. CIOs must take smart and well-thought-out chances if they are going to innovate and transform their organizations. Call it “The New Risk Factor,” where leaders must be flexible, innovative and create environments where breakthrough thinking thrives. This isn’t about managing risk, but elevating it to a level where the IT team can invent and create anything without fear. Sure, risk can get leaders into trouble. So understand where to place your bets--and where not to. The key to success is making sure that senior management understands the ultimate goal--revolutionizing businesses and processes. Those potential outcomes must be communicated in business terms, not IT jargon. So go ahead, take the risk or risk the future.
