  • A high performing IT operating model that leverages a continuous, iterative, and integrated strategy-to-value delivery process linking business objectives, through business capabilities, with end-to-end value streams. 
  • A mastery at: leveraging (at scale) modern technology platforms, adaptive business and technology practices, and co-innovation partners. These in turn enable competitive differentiation, accelerate time to value, and sustain delivery against the brand promise despite future disruptions.
