Session 13

A Clean Slate Is Not the Answer

Given all the issues that you will become aware of, one would be tempted to solve them by starting anew. After all, aren’t many of these issues the result of decades of unfortunate misadventures? Think twice about this avenue. There is no silver bullet; no easy way out.

You will learn:

• That even start-up companies, after a few years of using the same IT engagement model, get into the same issues described above.
• That the problem is not just around the current state of your portfolio of digital systems. It is also — and mostly — around how the IT teams engage in your organization.
• That the current tech-state of an organization is the result of hundreds of smaller decisions and not of major shifts in direction.
