Idea Management for IT Leaders
Learn how you and your team can foster a culture of innovation through gathering, evaluating and implementing ideas.
It’s your responsibility to define and drive the organisation’s technology strategy. You work with the rest of the board to agree how technology can support the business and with the rest of the IT team to make it happen.
You need to innovate, collaborate and keep the business happy that IT is working to support its needs.
Blaming IT is a common theme in many organisations, so you are most likely facing many problems, from daily firefighting to more strategic challenges, including:
Digital transformation – although this may not be your sole responsibility, IT is usually expected to play a significant role in helping to make this happen.
Lack of resource – IT covers everything from cyber security to marketing automation and the budget required to make everything happen can feel like it is spread very thinly.
Addressing siloes – many businesses have IT projects in silo all over the organisation. This is inefficient and a strain on resources.
Wazoku’s Idea Spotlight is a powerful way of getting people across the business collaborating on what they need and want from IT – this can then be channelled into driving new ideas and innovation. Idea Spotlight can:
Connect easily with existing systems that are in use.
Generate ideas to deepen the connection between IT and the business.
Demonstrate to the board the value that innovation can bring.
