  1. Alex,

    Great article!

    Had wanted to attend the Gartner symposium and really appreciate the insights & feedback.

    Personally, I would challenge the Bi-Modal IT concept. For me, digital requires a **multi-model approach**.

    I say “multi-model” purely because the business change and benefits realisation activities that are typically managed/led by business stakeholders should also be added into the mix to ensure that both Business and IT interests are combined to deliver sustainable digital transformation with the right representation & sponsorship.

    Additionally, if we focus purely on IT, the Open Group has an operating-model type framework for helping IT transform and manage its internal processes, priorities (e.g. Mode 1 and Mode 2 activities) and change initiatives necessary to keep it relevant, innovative and business focused. This framework is known as “IT4IT”.

    Should you require further information about IT4IT, let me know.

    Best regards,
    Salim
