How to Avoid Risky Business

At Online Business Systems we have our feet in two different worlds – Digital Transformation and Cybersecurity. As you can guess, we get a lot of questions about how to plan for and incorporate a security strategy when designing and executing a digital transformation project (e.g. process automation, transforming to a paperless organization, incorporating AI, or a cloud migration.) I have read quite a few articles and blogs written on this topic recently and had a few thoughts of my own based on my experiences being on the front lines where we’ve seen security done well (and also, unfortunately, not so well.)

Digital Transformation: Know Where You’re Starting From

Everyday businesses face a unique set of challenges and must consider a changing array of variables and scenarios. These dynamic realities make it very difficult to identify the "best time" for integrating new processes, making it impossible to generalize the problem into a one-size-fits-all type of answer, especially when it comes to Digital Transformation. The variables with DT are even more of a factor given its inherently adaptable and far reaching impact.

In this blog, we will look at two common scenarios that are often experienced and from there, entertain some practical solutions on how you can successfully integrate DT processes as efficiently as possible.

3 Reasons Why Agile Adoption Should not be Your Goal

As Agile coaches, it is not uncommon for us to encounter companies that have made adopting Agile a priority in their organization but have come under scrutiny for not delivering any specific business value - despite what was promised. In many of these cases, we have seen these organizations revert back to their traditional ways of delivering projects, while others take a mix and match approach relegating Agile only to small co-located projects.

This pattern has caused me to step back and consider why this is happening.  In the end I think it’s because we are setting the wrong goal.
