Click through for seven deadly sins that need to be overcome for successful business transformation, as identified by Mohan Nair, chief innovation officer at Cambia Health Solutions in Portland, Ore.

Having covered the IT industry and written about IT professionals for over 20 years, Don Tennant has seen what happens when the C-suite in a company tries to undergo some sort of business transformation without IT having a seat at the table. So he was recently gratified to learn that an IT guy has written the book — or at least one of them — on the topic.

Mohan Nair, chief innovation officer at Cambia Health Solutions in Portland, Ore., is a computer scientist with stints at Intel, Mentor Graphics and a few other IT companies under his belt, and now he’s the author of “Strategic Business Transformation: The 7 Deadly Sins to Overcome.” Nair’s premise strikes Don as a logical one: That effective business transformation won’t happen unless business leaders give employees a cause to believe in. Here’s an encapsulation of those “deadly sins” that Nair says must be avoided in this cause-driven approach.
