As Information Technology leaders, we are tasked with identifying and analyzing emerging technologies that will result in a disruptive influence on our organization’s ability to compete and to successfully accomplish our mission. To help support and guide our organization and teams during these exciting times, we need to continuously explore emerging organizational leadership trends and communicate the benefits of the changes with stakeholders. The ability of Information Technology leaders to lead change and to learn from others who are in the process of changing, will become an essential quality for helping the organization successfully benefit from emerging technology advancements.

Choose ONE of the following books to examine how notable leaders have used emerging organizational leadership trends to address disruption and rapid change:

2. It isn’t enough to understand how technology is changing. As Information Technology leaders, we must also find new and innovative ways to improve how the organization can embrace emerging technologies. While this may not be an area where technicians have typically thrived, it is an area that leaders embrace to successfully achieve the mission and vision of the organization and the Information Technology teams. We can explore best practices in principle and process in the various business areas such as human resources, accounting, and marketing and especially information technology that one year may be embracing processes such as system development lifecycles and the next exploring agile development teams. The principles and processes are how we interpret and implement the various emerging technology trends.

Emerging Technology trends vary year from year. While futurists try to predict where technology will be in both the near and far future, Information Technology leaders focus on what trends can be found by grouping together categories of technological change and finding ways to help their organization embrace actionable and beneficial disruption. Within the realm of emerging technology trends we also find innovation accelerators and, we explore systems of engagement technologies, systems of insight technologies, and supporting technologies. The Information Technology Professional will examine those trends along with others in the future to help guide their organization in continuous success.
