The IT organization has always wanted to be agile, to react gracefully to uncertainty, to be faster and more flexible. But up to now, that desire has been like a New Year’s resolution — where one creates laudable goals only to fall short of them when day-to-day pressures set in.
Bimodal IT helps CIOs develop the speed and agility their organization needs to meet digital challenges, while maintaining the efficiency, predictability and a step-by-step approaches that have served IT so well for the past two decades. IT organizations must combine a conventional approach to enabling change with an approach that lets enterprises deal with greater uncertainty, to be more exploratory, responsive and agile.
During this presentation we will explore what bimodal is, why it is a crucial capability for IT and the enterprise, and how to make it work.
