Last month HP's transformation practice spent a week in New York City delivering our Transformation Experience Workshop to several clients in our Manhattan office. When I was listening back to the digital recording the following week, it occurred to me that the discussion was just a valuable as the roadmap. In the session I led, the CIO came up to me during a break and lamented that it was the first time he and his direct reports had discussed any sort of a three year vision. Most the time, he said, we're just worried about getting to the end of the quarter, the end of the month, or even the end of the week. So that even if we were just giving his team the time to catch its breath and look forward, we were helping. But of course, to that room, we add decades of HP experience and the full breadth of possible HP solutions.
We have found that conversations sometimes take unexpected turns, especially when you have such diverse representation from both the problem domain and the potential solution domains. It's these unexpected twists and turns that really ensure the roadmap discussion navigates through the many obstacles organizations must overcome. We've yet to have a customer who has not been surprised in some manner.
It's really difficult describe the Transformation Experience. Fortunately you're going to have the opportunity to sit in on the workshop by means of a soon to be released video, taped during one of our recent workshops. I'll publish the link here very soon.
Until then, here's a brochure for the Transformation Experience:
Have you seen the emergency room video?
