The presenter will explain the importance of a solid foundation or common operating picture for the organization to rally around, while driving People, Process and System engagement. Just like building a structure, it is necessary to have a solid foundation. This is no different when designing a roadmap utilizing a methodical approach the entire organization will play a part in creating and owning.
