Since we launched our Agile Digital Transformation Roadmap poster two weeks

OK then - everyone have the poster handy? Good. Here's how to make sense of
So...Where's the Roadmap?
The first thing you'll notice about the ADT Roadmap is that it doesn't look
too much like the sort of roadmap you'd likely see in the course of your
work. There are no clear starting or ending points, and while the progression

likely have unclear endpoints, and ... (more)
Every generation, it seems, sports its own business transformation du jour.

Digital transformation impacts all corners of the business, and perhaps the

enterprise architects huddle.
