Balancing demands, shifting
to the right gear at the right time to achieve the right outcome. How does a CIO decide where to focus a finite amount of time, talent and investment?

One size fits few and multi-speed business requires a multi-faceted IT operating model. CIOS must match the speed of technology to the speed at which the business needs to consume it. This can be simplified into a four-point plan: Consumption of IT at different speeds, multiple governance models, rethinking architecture needs and inventing the new IT organization.

By using multi-speed as opposed to multi-tasking, CIOs will be integral to ensuring an organization reaches its many destinations.
