The 3 Phases of Digital Transformation

The research firm Technology Business Research (TBR) recently came out with a report titled, “Winning The Business Of Digital Transformation Services Requires A Process-Led Approach” authored by Sebastian Lagana and Jennifer Hamel.

"Hey Joshua, I agree that being able to "operationalize" the analytics (e.g., cataloging, indexing, check in/check out, version control, regression testing, artifact capture and sharing) could be part of a Phase 5.  We use a concept…"

"Interesting article, but I think there is a missing piece or maybe it's phase 5? I am finding that working in phase 4 is not a happy place for marketing man, executive man, finance man, IT man, or business man. Also, in phase 4 lots of time is…"
