Silicon Valley Comes to our Defense

In late 2007, the Defense Department hired a prominent Silicon Valley executives David Fisher and Paul Brinkley to head the new Office of Transformation, created to transform the IT infrastructure of the military (article).

How do you govern an Enterprise Architecture transformation for a $120 billion organization?

One element is the dashboarding Fisher and Brinkley have built
around the sprawling project, with a clear, cross-organization
definition of seven major Business Enterprise Priorities and a one-page
dashboard for each agency which quickly explains the status in budget,
timeline, and deliverables.

After you intellectually filter out the scale and look just at the
approach itself – it’s a clear and valuable method for managing and
communicating, the mission and status of enterprise EA transformations.
