Key priorities for 2021
I would approach it as a four step process from ideation to business management digitally.
1. Digital ideation and delivery: Identify, test and scale the most benefiting digital business ideas 
    within budget.
2. Digital foundation block: Manage digital approach horizontally and vertically cross-cutting 
     platforms and integration.
3. Traditional IT management: (rip/replace/retire) legacy infrastructure, security and core enterprise.
4. General business management: Work with business leaders to formalize organization’s approach 
    to digital business transformation and build the digital dexterity of leaders.


With the rapid rate of digital transformation changing the face of enterprises globally, the role of the CIO is also transforming. Insular IT management is a thing of the past, with CIOs now an essential in the C-suite, educating and guiding business leaders on ownership of critical digital responsibilities to help accelerate digital business progress.

●  Communication, Health & Safety initiatives: Implemented full online return to work survey at manufacturing plants and technical centers, saving 
    significant time and risk of exposure by eliminating long lines.

Redesigning IT & Security strategy
The Must have; the need to have and good to have is always a part of short term and long term plans. However as no compromise to security and no compromise on business impact; always strong focus on basics remains as part of our strategy.
