Description

This IDC Perspective provides rationale and strategies to governments for developing a plan for IT culture transformation and discusses tactics that have worked across all industries. It includes guidance to government CIOs on how to make these practices their own and see measurable difference in employee retention and diversity metrics - a key strategy for an ever-increasingly competitive talent market."Government CIOs who want to drive innovation must be intentional about building a culture that keeps high-value talent and helps them thrive," according to Thom Rubel, adjunct research advisor with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "In an environment where there are limited tools, an engaging IT culture can make a substantial impact in attracting and retaining an IT team that can more effectively contribute to improved program and agency mission outcomes."
