The remarkable shifts of 2020 made IT leaders superheroes. They not only showcased innovation but also flexibility to the world amid the global crisis. Thus, they are known as agents of ingenuity in the new business world. In this article at the Enterprisers Project, Curt Carver suggests reskilling and revitalizing IT teams to prepare them for the future.
Just by adopting some virtual platforms, CIOs cannot create a seamless work culture. You need to revamp the approach to survive the post-pandemic rush. IT teams must participate in new ideas while staying aligned to deliver flawless projects.
Here is a guidebook for CIOs to achieve strategic recovery in the months ahead without lacking innovation:
- IT leaders are once again taking the same route of making strategic decisions to continue operations. Instead, they must assign the task to a group of individuals and move on to critical areas of concern. Focus on the significant projects first and gradually shift attention on the other. Challenge your team members and coach them to get along with peers to expand their knowledge base.
- Observe the work you and your team have done in the global lockdown period while shifting to a remote working model. Identify the gaps and invest time in resolving employee issues. Take the opportunity to address any loopholes that might affect the workforce in future crises. Deliberately take a step back to assess the work you did in the past. Update your staff about the new governance policies and cybersecurity incidents.
2020 has etched an instance of business volatility onto our work lives that may occur again in the future. IT leaders must review and revise the lessons learned from it to make sound future progress plans.
