1. The Big Picture
 

Broad trends can easily seem abstract, remote, vague or overwhelming. Exploring and understanding the possible long-range futures would help inspire brand new ways of looking at aspects by distrupting conventional assumptions and thinking.

2. Industry Focus

The big picture trends will compel CIOs to assess their impacts in an industry context and enact changes based on those assessments. An industry focus also enables CIOs to study the experiences of other industries and apply relevant lessons to their respective organizations.

3. Employee Readiness

CIOs are developing the digital workplace to enable more effective ways of working. The digital workplace becomes the arena in which your organization's specific workforce and workspace needs, investments and objectives will be realized.

4. Culture

Technology is such an important driver of the future of work that it's easy to overlook other, equally important drivers and influences. It embodies and reflects not only the organization's culture and structures but those of the larger society.

5. Digital Skill

Skills and talent are indispensable in achieving strategic digital business transformation. Organizations struggle to find the right people with the right skills.
