Very often, results are not favorable due to the inherent business complexity and associated business structure. As a result, even incremental changes are expensive and time-consuming. In 2014 November, Chief Executive magazine reported that nearly 90% of the CEO's have failed to meet their target. Almost 40 CEOs in the Retail industry were replaced in 2014 that included likes of Walmart, Barnes & Noble, GAP, etc. Ideally speaking Enterprise Architecture should have been used for...
