This chapter focuses on the topic of enterprise transformation. Successful adoption of the model-based approaches presented in this book can be helped or hindered by the nature of the enterprise using them. It is very difficult to successfully innovate when new offerings obsolete the current offerings. Enterprise transformation is driven by experienced and/or anticipated value deficiencies. The ends, means, and scope of transformation influence the difficulties, costs, and time required for fundamental change. Overall strategy choices include predicting better, learning faster, and acting faster; returns on investments in these areas depend on market conditions. Successful transformation initiatives usually require competencies in vision, leadership, strategy, planning, culture, collaboration, and teamwork.
