Digital Transformation v22020-04-06T14:18:55+00:00

Digital transformation is a continual and holistic evolution worthy of formal strategic and tactical attention; with dedicated funding, roles, and expertise. Here is what we know:

  • All organizations go through similar stages during transformation, albeit at different paces.
  • Most organizations begin with “agile” and “DevOps” thinking that digital transformation falls to IT and Development teams.
  • Implementation of DevOps will not be your biggest challenge.
  • Expert coaching is critical to minimize risk

Many of our customers come to us after grass-roots digital transformation efforts become tangled and stall. Champions and heroes share stories of incremental pockets of success yet lament over cross-functional disfunction. Pieces and parts of DevOps tool implementation and team agile practices do not sum to a whole of enterprise innovation and adaptation. Investment in tools is not producing higher customer delight and teams are still suffocating under the weight of a huge backlog. Change agents are exhausted. Leadership is frustrated. Common themes of “politics, ego, and fear” emerge as the main obstacles to success. Ironically, these are also the obstacles that prevent an organization to make an investment in expert transformation help.
