Foster Teamwork and Collaboration

People follow their leaders. A strong and cohesive leadership team results in a strong and cohesive organization. Individual contributors in most IT organizations are highly capable and work very effectively as teams. Nonetheless, conflict can and does arise. Non-collaborative employees who deliver quick results are many times appreciated and promoted, but this almost always results in long-term organizational dysfunction. CIOs should very quickly address these situations and make timely changes. It is very important for CIOs to meet with individual employees on a regular basis to understand the challenges and get a pulse of the organization.

The role of the CIO and IT teams has changed dramatically. Traditionally, IT teams concentrated just on programming, infrastructure management and building applications from the ground up. Today, successful IT teams are the ones with a deep knowledge of how to take that expertise to drive the business forward. Every IT organization has the ability to make this transformation.
