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...

The EADM v2.0 (Enterprise Architecture for Decision Makers) workshop is specially designed for decision makers. The idea is inspired by medical practice, wherein a medical doctor, who understands the human anatomy, uses the symptoms (narrated by a patient) to understand the problem and narrow it down to specific organ/organs, then applies x-ray techniques to get the necessary insight and uses the x-ray for diagnosis before arriving at possible solution options. Interestingly, this methodology of problem-solving had been a great success in the medical practice that has succeeded in handling human body disorders in a timely manner resulting in longevity of human...

Ever wondered why CEOs and Business Heads often struggle to articulate a clear strategy and future plans for their business that they purportedly know so well? Why are their forecasts and predictions so conditional that many of them set themselves up for failure?
