Episode Description

The buzz: “An examination of hundreds of businesses over 20 years of operations has shown us that rather than digging in their heels, successful companies…have a culture of continuous agility. In essence, they have “agility routines”" (Christopher Worley, www.entrepreneur.com/article/240705). The world has changed. Neither the old monolithic applications customized to meet yesterday’s business models nor generic, one-size-fits-all business solutions can power today’s digital organizations. Reality check: It's time to stop building the business application pyramid and start building tents instead. The experts speak. Paul Khanna, Deloitte: “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door” (Milton Berle). Matthew Riches, AgilityWorks: “Tell him he’s Pele and get him back on” (John Lambie, Partick Thistle manager). Bill Bowers, SAP: “Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore” (Dorothy, Wizard of Oz, 1939 film). Join us for Business Applications: Moving from Pyramid To Tent.
