Ok, even my brother is giving me grief about not blogging. And he’s not even in tech. Yes. I’ve been varying degrees of quiet. Guilty as charged.
As my former CIO always presumed, the longer my silence, the greater likelihood I was up to something. She was right. Extrapolating forward, I must be up to something. In fact, I am.
Over the last 12-18 months, I’ve had several ah-ha moments. Resulting in seemingly random ideas scattered throughout the business-technology universe. Luckily, I’ve been doing this long enough to know when I keep circling the same ideas, something will come. Eventually.
Well, that finally happened. Emerging from the mystery of background processing, I began to link-these-dots with each other, and within a business value context. I was so close.
Oddly, a recent rant of mine on Twitter, about the impedance mismatch of the tech industry’s product-orientation with enterprises’ capability-orientation, ended up being my missing link.
Now, I’m quietly (yet excitedly) weaving everything together in a compelling narrative. No surprise, I started with the framing diagrams.
So, to my brother Alan, and my many supportive readers, please bear with me a little bit longer. I have a good feeling about this.
And yes, Guillermo, I will now seriously revisit the “book thing”.
