If you have bootstrapped a business, as I have more than once, then you will know that you just have to embrace #digital technology. At a micro scale that is easy with plentiful applications and services a click away in the #cloud.
When you are a big business with a legacy of technology accumulated over many decades and with people and processes linked to the evolution of that legacy it is much harder to adapt.
Couple of thoughts on this.
Spotted this article from heavy hitters McKinsey and a worthwhile read.
Of course there is always a gulf between the theory and practice and that is why I co-wrote a book Thinking of..Building a Microsoft Cloud Operating Model Ask the Smart Questions at www.cloudoperatingmodel.com that digs deep in assisting the business and technology teams to collaborate on ‘making it happen’ as McKinsey describe.
I have 5 copies of the book to distribute to the first five people to respond to this post. All you have to do is to reply to this question by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 June 2019.
Q. What is the difference between agile and Agile?
There is no right or wrong answer!
