Looking beyond the clutter of day-to-day priorities, transformation is an ever-present and fundamental driving force for the enterprise. High performing C-Level business executives commonly have a business vision for an enterprise that is bigger, better or different than it is today. This vision yields a set of transformation goals such as simplification, cost reduction, increased agility, better service to customers, and improved quality, efficiency or effectiveness. The scope can be large or small. The approach can be evolutionary or revolutionary. The pace can be aggressive or reserved. In all cases, the “transformed enterprise” is the systematic realization of the vision. By embracing transformation as a core concept, IT executives use it to steadily guide their organization to the transformation target.
