Thanks for sharing this interesting document that completes the previous MIT CISR materials.
First, It confirms what we already knew about operational backbones (previously known as digital platforms): They dramatically reduce the cost to income ratio and above all they are prerequisites for a great digital strategy execution.

Moreover, this presentation mainly focuses on the companies pursuing the customer engagement focused digital strategy. But, what about companies targeting a different value proposition such as Digitized Solutions focused digital strategy ? Are they covered by the statistics shown in the document? if not, can they also be considered as future ready ?

Finally, in my understanding, going through the Operational Excellence axis is equivalent to the going through the Enterprise Architecture journey (“stage 1 – business silos” to “stage 4 – Business modularity”). However this journey is a long one, and can last more than 6 years even for the most disciplined companies. Is it delay worth waiting for ? Specially in the case of a high pace environment such as digitized industries?

Thank you
