IT Maturity on TopicHero

Exceptional Leadership is the ability to Methodically and Continually Create Heroes™

IT Maturity provides tools and training to help enterprises methodically and continuously create heroes (i.e. enable individuals across the enterprise to achieve, excel, and interact effectively). Training and tools cover both hero creation from a technical skill perspective and an organizational interaction perspective.

As an example, IT Maturity’s TopicHero tool allows users to collect Links, Search tools, RSS Feeds, Notes, Webpages, Chat, and other data related to their areas of expertise, in one place, that can easily be shared with other experts in related areas. This helps users become technical skill heroes. (See below: Examples - Business Comparison.)

From an organizational interaction perspective, most leadership research  and theory is focused around individual leader psychology. IT Maturity takes an alternative IT perspective of leaders as entities operating within organizations, orchestrating how other entities interact with each other, to optimize productivity.  Thus, the objective is to make the entities, their interactions, and their execution of activities individually, and as a team heroic. IT Maturity Leadership includes principles in five different categories: Management, Organization (structure), Extent (of activities executed), Culture, and Vision. (See below: Examples - Leadership Principles.)

Using this new perspective (The IT Maturity Method - see below) IT evolves into four separate activities: Business Enhancement, Technology Advancement to enable the business enhancement, Vendor Integration to utilize external expertise to make the business enhancement happen, and Leadership Improvement .

Vision at the Speed of Change™

By using tools associated with these four activities, enterprises can automate the flow of information from heroes up the stream to executive management in real time so that Vision can be created at the speed of change. For if you rely on Vision that is only created once a year, on average your Vision will be six months out of date.

This also evolves IT and the broader enterprise into focusing on how technology can be used to impact and improve business function, and also further to how IT can be used for the maturation of the larger enterprise.  (See below: Examples - Business Comparison.)

IT Maturity Introduction

  • Examples
    • Business Comparison

      Business Comparison is one of the more innovation focused IT Maturity tools. It utilizes the a Business Functions Map which is a high-level map of all of the business functions that an enterprise does.

      The Business Comparison tool creates automated search tools around employee login pages so that whenever employees log in they see links to all different types of searches associated with the business function they are responsible for (e.g. patent searches, book searches, web page searches, academic searches, and product searches). See TopicHero as an example of a combined search tool focused on specific topics/business functions.

      Employee usage of the links could also be tracked. Additionally, links to internal innovation process flow sites can sit next to the search links so that employees can input ideas for improvements along with following associated process steps for bringing those ideas through to fruition. Employee usage of the innovation process flow links would be trackable. In this way, processes are built to concretely bring all employees into the activity of enterprise improvement.

      The Business Comparison tool just described, along with other IT Maturity tools, help insure that each employee is methodically and continuously developed in the direction of becoming a hero, as well enabiling your organization to maintain:

      Vision at the Speed of Change™

      With team members being on top of changes in their Topics, and having tools to methodically and continuously push solutions to those changes up stream, enterprises and leadership can have Vision at the Speed of Change.
