Strategy connects with structure and structure influences strategy. The relationship between the two drives organizations to re-align, re-distribute and re-organize, all except for IT. According to the 2013 Gartner CIO Survey, only 30% of CIOs believe that changing business priorities and strategies requires changing the IT organization. In other words, 70% of CIOs believe that their current organization can handle just about everything the business can throw at them. An assumption increasingly challenged by demands for central control and local growth. This is leading CIOs and organizations to innovate how they think about the center/edge relationships in the quest for greater growth and local competitive advantage.
