Many projects get bogged down in the minutiae of the technology, resulting in investing more time in developing a platform at the expense of ensuring that the solution remains relevant to the needs of the business and its stakeholders. Technology solutions almost invariably have to be flexible, so they can evolve with the business. It is important to know therefore how the technology will support the business and its staff going forward, not just what it will do on day one.

Practical implications

Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
