Platform kick-start at a Global Telecom organization

I'll take you inside the early stages, wins, challenges, and learnings of a large-scale complex platform adoption effort to share what worked, what didn't, and what might just make your efforts pay off.
Talk abstract

sLate last year, I was a part of a large-scale platform adoption effort similar to GE's Predix strategy: A platform so good it could be sold to partners and customers.

Sounds like a dream, but it was far from it.

Along the way, I mapped out the early discovery, plans, context, options and a clear future state landscape to guide a growing group of business and tech leaders.

This talk will cover:

  • How to get started with a clear vision, known obstacles, and everyone on the same page
  • How to scale a successful pilot in an incubator to a giant parent company
  • How to manage scope and target the most valuable capabilities
  • What you'll trip over if you're not careful
