  • IT leaders today play a large role in shaping how their organizations think. 
  • With the shift to remote work, IT leaders should focus on their cognitive infrastructure as well as their physical or digital infrastructure. This involves thinking about how employees interact with applications, devices, networks and data outside the typical work environment.
