Great Information For IT Leadership
Kelly, thanks so much for this article and congratulations on your doctorate. Your conclusion also matches my years of experience in the IT industry. Your study would be helpful to IT leaders who are interested in talent retention in some areas that are increasingly competitive. I would be interested in knowing whether you had any indication in your conclusions regarding how organic cultures affect innovation. Thanks again and I look forward to reading more.

Re: Great Information For IT Leadership
Hi, Yes, my conclusion is also in sync with my years of experience as well. It is nice to know!  You mention talent retention, which is precisely why I wanted to do this study.  Managers need to find ways to keep those that have the knowledge and skills particular to their organization.  Voluntary turnover is extremely costly--both monetarily and non-monetarily.


As for organic cultures and innovation, it's funny you mentioned this, because I looked at many different aspects to measure culture against:  loyalty, performance, and innovation were evaluated.  However, I selected "Trust" because "Trust" impacts all of these and more!   

 

My study specifically measured Trust, but think that you will find that when Innovation is measured, the results will be very similar!

 

Thank you so much for the interest.
