Forbes: Talking Web 2.0 with Cisco CIO Rebecca Jacoby

December 8, 2008 - 1 Comment

Today, Ed Sperling of Forbes has an interesting Q&A with our CIO, Rebecca Jacoby. The Q&A covers such topics as Web 2.0, collaboration, employee behavior change, the role of the CIO, and IT budgets.My favorite pearl of wisdom from Rebecca on I.T.’s role in the enterprise:

“What we’re really talking about is the future of work–how people work. To structure that on an enterprise level, you have to think beyond your policies to what’s the motivation behind this. No enterprise is comfortable allowing employees to do whatever they want. It’s more about allowing them to do their work the way they want for the value of the business.”

I hope you enjoy the story.
