Business Innovation vs. IT Innovation
The authors of this book have met with many IT senior managers and CIOs over the years. Technology and innovation are frequently the main topics of these meetings. Our discussions are usually triggered by some new technology, news, or practice in which the CIO is interested. This is sometimes mere technical tire-kicking and light relief from our day job. On other occasions, it is a more serious discussion about the impact of implementing the new stuff. While these technology discussions are fun and impart some useful information, we must consider if they are the right type of discussion to encourage an innovative approach to business across the whole organization that the CIO works for.
