Web 2.0 Strategies for CIOs

September 30, 2008

Came across this blog post from Social Computing Magazine, “Ten Aspects of Web 2.0 Strategy That Every CTO and CIO Should Know’. He asks how to make the transition from 1.0 to 2.0 safely and non-disruptively with your business largely intact, perhaps even with a superior competitive position.”

My opinion has always been that Web 2.0 is disruptive, however, there may be strategies to minimize the disruption and win on competitive strategies. There is a helpful diagram about a transformation model.

Some of the 10 points are:

  • It’s not about technology, it’s about the changes it enables
  • Existing management methods and conventional wisdom are a hard barrier to 2.0 strategy and transformation
  • Incubators and pilot projects can help create initial environments for success with 2.0 efforts
  • The business side requires 2.0 competence as well.

Worth reading and implementing in  your organization, even healthcare.

  1. Interesting article. It’s critical to place a premium on change management and process re-design. otherwise, it leads to a completely dysfunctional enterprise dynamic.
