The 2010s: Is Your Staff Ready?
What will the 2010s bring? It is not easy to look into the future; however, CIOs will have to do just that if they want to build and mold a staff capable of taking on the new challenges coming with this decade.
CEOs and CIOs have many responsibilities and priorities, but the two most important ones are defining strategy and building the best team to achieve strategic goals and objectives. This Council Opinion is the first of two omnibus issues focused on helping CIOs and IT managers prepare for the future. In this Opinion, we will highlight significant trends and changes that will be affecting IT organizations with a focus on people strategy. The next omnibus issue will focus on technology trends for the 2010s. The goal is to greatly increase the odds of strategic success by hiring and developing the best staff while employing the right technologies. IT will have many new challenges and new opportunities during the next 10 years. Now is the time to prepare to take advantage of what is known and develop a plan to survive the many unknowns ahead.
