Innovation isn’t a one-man crusade, even for the most formidable CIO – it’s a team effort that requires significant organizational buy-in. However, it can be difficult to convince fellow leaders of the need to innovate, optimize spend to free up funds that can support growth, and transform the business. That’s where the power of narrative comes in – by crafting a strong story to justify and explain changes, communicating IT value in terms that the business understands – you begin the laborious (but worthwhile) process of instituting change.

This Gartner report is a guide to that, explaining how to:

  • Build business partnerships to secure buy-in on new investments
  • Use data to quantify the value of innovation to your business partners
  • Communicate the necessity of a culture of change to influence behavior
