CIO To-Dos Before Compiling Post-Pandemic Strategies

Post-pandemic strategies are a new area of conversation for CIOs. You have already dealt with the sudden shift in the workspace model for your organization. And now, it is time to think about business continuity. You must build up a framework that provides the needed flexibility and tenacity to survive rapidly changing market demands. So, before you start compiling post-pandemic strategies, there are three CIO to-dos this Gartner article recommends.

CIO To-Dos Before Post-pandemic Strategies

The priority list is in the shape of three questions. As a CIO, you have numerous things to look after, and one of them is aligning business cases with strategies. You must fulfill the company’s short-term and long-term goals, no matter how frequently they change because of the COVID-19 uncertainties. Let’s find out what those are:

Factors Leading to Perseverance

Discover how your organization withstood the pandemic impacts. For instance, you already had online platforms that support work-from-home options. Sit with your partners to discuss the pros and cons of your post-pandemic strategies.

Framework to Support Faster Decision-making

To be effective and leverage the new window of opportunities, CIOs should encourage distributed decision-making. A unit manager knows about business unit challenges and local business avenues better than the central board committee. So, it is more feasible for local executives to take up a project that they can align with your corporate post-pandemic strategies.

Evening Out Resource Workload

Thanks to the digital transformation drives, employees are better equipped to work despite the pandemic setbacks. While businesses can quickly come back to their regular delivery pace, CIOs must acknowledge the resultant IT resource burnout. Deploy some of the digitization assignments to outside vendors for consistency and accuracy. The ‘force multipliers’ would enable internal resources to focus on meeting corporate goals.
