Digital Transformation is the latest industry buzzword. Nobody knows what it means yet everybody wants it. And they want it now! It is driving the need for IT organizations to transform to new (agile) ways of working. ‘Agility’ and ‘Speed’ is being called for, and this is driving the need to align end-to-end SILOes to create a faster FLOW of business value.

In response, IT organizations are adopting new ways of working – agile, lean, DevOps, SAFe, and now the latest version of ITIL – ITIL4.

Yet according to Industry reports and findings and confirmed in our own global workshops with hundreds of organizations ‘70% fail to get the HOPED for value from their transformation initiatives’. ‘I could have told you this in advance’ declares the self-professed ‘Pointy-fingered Grumpy Old Man in IT’ Paul Wilkinson, playing his role as CEO in the GamingWorks Marslander simulation workshop. ‘As Einstein was once quoted as saying

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”, Yet IT organizations persist in trying to prove Einstein wrong’ says Paul. Why are 70% failing to achieve hoped for results? Are we failing because it is all so new? Uncharted territory? Or are we simply repeating patterns of failure from the past? ‘I see the same mistakes being made again and again with each new passing set of buzzwords. It is like watching the film groundhog day, every day Bill Murray wakes up and goes through the same experiences’.

About this webinar

In this webinar, Maarten, Claudine, and Paul will look back at 40 years worth of experience of captured insights, findings, and suggestions from thousands of organizations struggling with transforming their IT capabilities. Examining these consistent patterns from the past? Why haven’t we solved them? What can and should we do about them? What do we need to do to enable us to prevent them from happening again, in this world of fast-paced change and new emerging models and frameworks?
