Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh, and Henry Cavill are all big names and share one thing in common. What connects them is the fictional superhuman bimodal character they have all embodied. And who doesn’t love that character? He’s Superman. He can do it all.
In one mode, he falls well within most conventional norms and fits perfectly into a world of indifference and acceptance. In his other mode, though, he’s a symbol of change. He’s something the world has never seen before, and something the world agrees with. His kind of change is good. His kind of change brings hope.
Now let’s bring IT into this picture. What can IT folks learn from him? And how can they harness that hope? It’s simple—go bimodal. Stability is a must and change is unavoidable. But that doesn’t mean that both can’t coexist. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2017, 75 percent of IT organizations will have a bimodal approach. In this approach, mode one is about legacy and predictability, leading to stability and accuracy. Mode two is about innovation and exploration, which lead to agility and speed.
