An article that was written by @CIO is exciting and a topic that we should all be taking into consideration.
We are all preparing our teams for the next round of projects in our Digital Transformation; the governance team will be scoring these projects. It is easy to hold off on some projects, as we are all waiting to see what the new normal is.
Don’t do that: Rather, accelerate business transformation efforts now to put yourself in a better position after the pandemic passes, say experts and CIOs.

CIOs opting to hunker down and wait out COVID-19 should think again. By revving up their digital business strategies, they position themselves for growth when the pandemic subsides, say experts and CIOs.
