Engineering A Digital Transformation.™
More than more software, more data or more people, driving transformative change means measured and focused actions across six practice areas of change.
PEOPLE. We’re asking them to be capable of all new things, in all new spaces with all new technologies, we’ve got to help them get there.
DATA. The entire organization now needs to consume, integrate, secure, manage and react to a continuous stream of data. Requires far more than more software, more reports and more analysts to make it happen.
SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY. We need new infrastructure, architecture and technologies as well as an all new approach to mitigating risk and maximizing security vs. simply bolting on and adding to what we already have.
ORGANIZATION. We must envision new structures and new approaches to foster and enable the behaviors and capabilities we desire.
PLANNING & PROCESS. There must be new ways to align our goals, our resources and our spending, iterate and innovate across the organization and we must be able to provide maximum flexibility where possible while ensuring rigidity where necessary.
CUSTOMER. The customer is now in control. We need new insights, new technologies and new ways to understand them, be available on their journey and deliver their expected experience not one time, but all the time, across the organization.
6 practice areas.
Ordered, prioritized and resourced.
Gunky, clunky and fundamental.
Business & market assessment and analysis

Think we have it figured out? Not quite. No one does. The discipline and definition of "digital transformation"takes on many different forms and encompasses many different interpretations. What's common among all? That today is not sustainable and tomorrow has to be different. Read on and join the conversation.
Given the more than a billion dollars in missed income targets and double and triple digit percentage increases in operating costs, it seems clear that lottery privatization has not delivered the expected rewards for Illinois, Indiana or New Jersey. While privatization may not have been the answer these states were looking for, it also isn’t the problem for…
The top ten lists for being a successful entrepreneur don’t usually include the explicit direction to not get sick. Perhaps it’s assumed that if an entrepreneur is going to be the CEO and the CMO and the VP of Sales and more, they’d better have health reserves to carry them through. For me, when I…
It’s not easy, it’s not quick and it’s not simple. That’s the best I can do. The best I can do in response to all those who keep coaching me to come up with an easy three step process for the change…
Not as in “who cares?”, but as in “why does it matter?” A simple word but one with a role in helping organizations meet the rapidly evolving demands of today’s business. Headlines and industry narrative herald the potential of bigger and bigger data sets and wax poetically about the latest, greatest business intelligence, CRM, analytics…
If only we all weren’t driven to please, to appear logical, smart and rational. If only we accepted that our memory fails us more than it doesn’t, that many of our decisions are made before we are aware of making them and we have little ability to know how we would react to a future…
Or even how to get there? Your business problem isn’t “Big Data”. Your business problem may be acquiring more customers, better understanding your customers’ needs, optimizing your distribution channels or any number of the challenges (and opportunities) that exist for businesses today. With data you may be able to better address these, in amazing and…
It’s your path to a sale. We often use phrases such as “moment of truth” and “path to purchase” when referring to customers and how they interact with products, follow a path to purchase and ultimately make the decision to buy. These terms, and the processes and principles behind them, have proven invaluable as marketers…
First, the bad news. There isn’t a secret. There isn’t a quick and easy way to turn your data into value. There isn’t a one-size fits all software to be implemented or a book or company out there (including Codei) that can, overnight, transform your organization. And even though there are 1.8B returns when you…
I don’t know that there is a person who hasn’t watched with wonder a juggler. Whether it be balls, blades or bats, it is a mental and physical feat that not everyone can accomplish. His attention is singularly on the movement of the balls and their alignment with a relatively fixed trajectory. If a ball…
