FRANK FEATHER ~ Business Futurist's insight:

Digi-Transform requires a company-wide transformation, starting with tone at the top in the Boardroom, and throughout the organization to change its culture. Tech alone will not achieve any meaningful transformation, because competitors can get the very same tech.

Restructured Digital C-Suite: Future of CMO, CCO, CIO, CDO | FUTURE-PROOF DIGI-TRANSFORM | Scoop.it

I've noticed lately what appears to be an emerging trend in marketing and communications leadership in some large companies.

FRANK FEATHER ~ Business Futurist's insight:

Another excellent article by Dion Hinchcliffe, proposing the merger of CMO and COO, and CIO and CDO. Personally, I would go further. Digitization will bring singularity in the C-Suite. As such, I suggest all silos be eliminated and the roles converged into a Digi-Transform Team under the CEO, with the members playing multiple roles across the enterprise, driven by customer focus.

FRANK FEATHER ~ Business Futurist's insight:

Another brilliant article from Dion Hinchcliffe on digital transformation. However, I disagree that this should be loaded on the CIO. Rather the CEO and the Board of Directors should be driving this, with CIO as one member of a digital C-Level team. I will be writing some posts about all this on LinkedIn soon, starting with the Board of Directors.
