  • Abstract

    A corporate enterprise is a highly complex organism. It is multi-dimensional, touching all aspects of people, relationships, politics, control, IT, businesses, etc. Moving an enterprise along a transformational path to a better state requires the techniques of and insights into multiple disciplines including computer science, psychology, sociology, cultures, and language. I have led large enterprise transformations over the past 10 years or more and will share my experiences and insights by sharing concepts as well as specific cases.
