Gartner: DiMaio and Women as drivers for #gov20 and #opengov

Can Women Drive Government 2.0 Better and Faster than Men?

Can Women Drive Government 2.0 Better and Faster than Men?

Andrea DiMaio loves to stir up the pot.  And I love discussions with him on these topics because there is no equal in terms of ability to truly hash out tough questions.

But this one may not be so tough.  He writes about women having an easier time with consuming and deploying Government 2.0.  From my experience, very similar to his (we both travel way too much), I have had incredible conversations with female gov20 leaders and have seen some of them deploy whereas others simply discuss.

Not entirely sure of causality and in fact it may simply be that the environment that we have developed around women as opposed to men creates a need or structure to increased social interaction, but the result is pronounced.  I was just in Korea and was approached by far more women than men in following up on the topic of my speech, and direct followup on twitter, Linked In, etc afterwards.  This was a Tourismevent for the G20 Tourism Ministers in Buyeo, Korea, but it isn’t isolated to that industry.

Similar followups happened in New York City last week at the NYSEkeynote I gave on cloud computing and the followons and engaged conversations at London CityCamp had a pronounced gender bias in terms of actual action coming out of a particular engagement.

I am in Ireland the rest of this week and will certainly be watching to see if the DiMaio Effect continues.  Thanks for the fuel for thought Andrea.

Matt Miszewski has been a leader of incredible teams, that accomplished unbelievable goals - together. From rebuilding an enterprise technology strategy from the ground up as Chief Information Officer of the State of Wisconsin to driving a struggling global sales and marketing team to live beyond their potential and helping take their stock from $45/sh to over $110/sh, I have been honored to take on huge challenges and beat them by building collaborative and high performing teams. I was proud to be a regular speaker on Digital Realty's earnings call each quarter and being able to brief and advise the Board of Directors each quarter. Focusing on our shareholders needs while coupling that focus with the needs of our top customers was the combination the street was searching for and our increase in equity value proves the effort worthwhile. Our focus on total leasing costs, net present value of long term leases, closing the gap on cash performance and elimination of stagnant inventory helped to drive a stalled stock. Most proud of standing up a revenue engine that will be used for decades including a renewed global salesforce, inside sales expertise, demand generation focus, new global Partners and Alliances program, sales operations team and a heightened focus on connecting lead development to sales outcomes (including a new social marketing program, AR/PR, digital presence, brand identity refresh, SEO/SEM and a regular campaigning process). Combining decades of technology leadership with this commercial success creates an incredible package to unleash revenue and hack growth for companies from any industry out there.
