13 Feb 2014 CIOs: Frame the Game Your Staff Is Playing [34929]
Enterprise Efficiency, February 13th, 2014

"If you've got trouble managing your staff or getting them to work together it might be because they're all playing a different game. We often call this a culture problem, but it might be more about how you frame the game you want everyone to play.

A recent MIT Sloan Management Review post pointed to research from 2012 that can really help CIOs and managers change their culture (and that of their enterprise) through some rather simple steps. (The original research is gated but it is here.).."

15 Mar 2011 Using IT for Value Creation [24011]
Not Just a Commodity Any Longer, at Least in the Technologically Savvy New World of Business

Time for a new mantra in the world of business, says Michael Schrage, research fellow at the MIT Center for Digital Business and visiting fellow at the Imperial College Business School’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Group in London. A possible candidate expression is the one he cites in an interview with MIT Sloan Management Review’s editor-in-chief, Michael S. Hopkins. That expression is a quote from Warren Buffett, who has said, "Price is what you pay, value is what you get.”

Schrage urges executives to view IT as more than just commoditized infrastructure that works -- one hopes -- when the switch is thrown. Instead, he argues that management must understand the value it wishes to achieve and then reverse engineer their processes in order to ensure realization of that value. Experimentation, according to Schrage, is cheaper and less risk-laden than it used to be, given the advances delivered by evolving IT technology.
