Traditionally, organizations were structured to fulfill executive plans, with customer needs a secondary consideration. This structure has historically seen success, and culture, people systems and IT architectures have been built to encompass this business philosophy.
In today’s fast-changing world, however, this philosophy is leading to competitive weakness and existential pressure.
Today’s successful digital companies are built quite differently. They are founded around meeting customer needs and built to innovate. In order to accomplish this, they rely in large part on self-organization of employees.
Unleashing the power of self-organization to transform IT architecture contradicts the status quo in business structures. This talk will introduce Architecture Marketplaces as a key leadership instrument to overcoming these obstacles to transformation.
