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.
