CIO’s Role In Business Transformation | Forrester Blogs

The CIO’s Role In Business Transformation | Forrester Blogs cites KPMG’s 5-stage business transformation framework…very similar to my IT innovation framework, IVIS.  The blog comments that in KPMG’s framework, the implementation stage requires the greatest effort.

For IVIS, I would argue that the highest hurdle is the first I, Innovate.  Why?  To Innovate requires time, resource, experience which alone is an investment.

If the second I in IVIS, Implement, causes initial analysis paralysis, most IT innovation efforts won’t even get off the ground; there will be less motivation to Innovate.

Agree or disagree?  Thoughts?
