I would like to announce that I have launched a new website called The Quantum Age of IT (www.thequantumageofit.com) and that I will be moving my main blog to that site. This site represents my vision of the future of IT and what it means to every IT leader and professional in our industry. The concept centers around four central themes:
- IT as we know it is dead. The fundamental IT business model has shifted to the customer being in control
- Because of this, every IT organization will need to make a choice and become either a Strategic Sourcer or a Strategic Innovator as we enter what I am calling The Quantum Age of IT
- To enter the Quantum Age, every IT organization must develop five new organizational traits. They must become Learning Organizations, Disciplined Organizations, Transparent Organizations, Intimate Organizations and Dynamic Organizations
- Finally, to compete in this new age, every IT professional must develop a set of 5 new skills: Marketing & Communication, Innovation & Collaboration, Critical Thinking & Analytical, Financial Management and Leadership
The new site is dedicated to these ideas and will serve as the home to the "movement" that will be created around these ideas. My latest blog post is entitled, Why Critical Thinking is Critical. I hope that you check it out.
