And, for those who are not U.S. citizens, you may wonder why this Day of Independence happened at all........  Well let me start with a couple of thoughts. When an organisation, such as the British Empire, 1) gets too large too quickly, without de-centralising accountability to make decisions at levels best suited for the local community and 2) insists on centralising all aspects of life and regulation at one central point without reference to local sensibilities, well, you see what can happen.

 

Tea, anyone?

We also know that it is challenging to support dozens of fast-paced projects without losing track of the big picture. On top of it all, effectively controlling the organization to reduce risk and improve agility, while making sure the projects are aligned with IT and business objectives is challenging.
