Hire thinkers, not groupthinkers

There is a worrying groupthink – and groupthink is pretty much the same as non-think – in some IT circles today. For example, waterfall, on-premises hardware and ERP tend to be seen as “bad” while agile and AI are “good.” But some in IT think quite superficially about specific technologies: they just go with the flow. CIOs need IT people whose thoughts are less predictable, and more thoughtful, inquisitive and open-minded. So how can they find more such people?
