Bimodal IT emerged from a desire to transform IT into a strategic area within companies. MJV has already offered a webinar about the theme that we have transformed into this blog. Now, we are releasing another e-book that you can download for free.
We want to help you evolve in the, evermore global, innovation process. Without a well prepared IT, however, your team will lack the necessary adaptability to keep the systems operational and to create new applications and digital products.
Aside from looking out, it’s necessary to innovate internally: each corporation is dependent upon a myriad of systems that interfere in its productivity. These are the challenges of a new information technology, which today is integrated into the area of businesses.
To make this change, you need to know the organizational culture well. The truth is that in many companies IT is not considered part of the business, but rather part of problem solving.
In general, IT focuses on keeping the systems working and this has been central to the management trend that sees IT as a centered functionality. There is an integration of all departments with IT but few business decisions originate from it. With the arrival of the digital world, Type 2 manages IT as part of the business.
This view needs to make its way to traditional IT. If this doesn’t happen, communication flaws between the business world and the digital world are inevitable, leading to unsolvable problems in the corporate atmosphere. Technology and business thinking walk together.
How to change the organizational climate
An example of changes to the organizational climate are Hackathons, programming marathons where hackers, designers, programmers, developers and other professionals meet. The Hackathons help upgrade the IT climate, up to that point directed towards executing actions that maintain quality at the center of the daily balance.
Another example are innovation laboratories, spaces geared towards co-creation: a creative and collaborative space where new knowledge is exchanged and ideas developed.
