7 Elements of Human Centric IT [Infographic]

7 Elements of  Human Centric IT [Infographic] | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Government IT leaders and knowledge workers are faced with the task to make smarter decisions at faster speeds and with fewer resources. As the government IT landscape continues to change, agencies must focus on human-centric IT solutions to improve their business functions. This means crafting IT systems that connect people to process to transform service delivery.

GovLoop has partnered with Pegasystems to develop the infographic below. The infographic, Defining Human-Centric IT,  will walk you through this new model of governance and highlight the benefits of a human-centric design. This is the way forward for government and is rapidly changing the role of the public sector employee and leading to improved services for citizens." from source: http://www.govloop.com

#agile #innovation #change-management #information-technology #IT #ITC #communications #collaboration #mobile #tablets #progress #ROI #adoption #Transformers #Traditionalists #Transformation #Not-invented-here


ghbrett's insight:

This page points to a somewhat interactive infographic about 7  elements of human centric information technologies. While the target here is government, it is a model that can apply to any enterprise whether corporate or academic. The Traditionalists are those who do business as usual. Or else they are too busy being either time or financially constrained to try anything out of the track (rut) already planned. Whereas the Transformers are calculated risk takers who focus on the needs of their members/clients/audience. They adapt to and adopt new policies as well as new technologies. These changes will lead to further changes as they evaluate and move forward with their successes.

What I like about this infographic is that it presents a parallel viewpoint of the processes each culture uses for comparison. For example stage one: Traditionalist - "The Current Model leads to loss, error, and duplication; while the Transformer's tip 1 is to Think Big, Start Small. And so one.

Again consider this chart as a metaphor or model for your agency or enterprise. In some cases it is signing to the choir of transformers, on the other hand it may provide the Transformer guidance in approaching a Traditionalist Management process.
