Outside-In Barometer

As discussed in the Report, Building your Firm from the Outside-in, today’s highly interconnected customers, ecosystems and cloud computing platforms are pushing the business centre of gravity outside of the walls of the firm.

Effective internal company systems, processes and value chains will always be essential, but businesses will increasingly need to harness the skills, capabilities and passions of the external marketplace.

In December 2013, we conducted a survey of more than 300 senior IT leaders in large commercial organizations. In this report we present the main findings, which show that while the rate of change varies considerably by issue, firm, industry and country, the overall shift toward both outside-in Business Strategies and outside-in Information Technology Management is well under way.

Take the Barometer self-assessment and see how your organization measures up.
