Enterprise Analysis, Not As Usual

Our organizations are a complex honeycomb of activity. With a bevy of components, artifacts, processes, and egos, it can be a lot to navigate. Fortunately, we can harness the awesome might and power of Enterprise Analysis! While Enterprise, or Strategic, Analysis typically involves taking both a high-level and detailed look at the different activities currently being undertaken in the enterprise and determining what opportunities exist to improve the organization. At the same time, seeking alignment on all of the different components, to ensure the left-hand knows what the right is doing. And as if that wasn't complex enough, we now have to layer on the fact that our working world has fundamentally changed, and we are all forced to see all the pieces of the organization in this new, distributed reality. But we don't generally back down from a challenge, do we? In this session, building upon the skills and tactics borrowed from a new workshop of the same name, we'll set out the skills needed to move into an Enterprise Analysis role, and explore how to win the strategic war in our new battlegrounds, so that you, and your organizations, can continue to be successful, no matter what comes next.

Cryptographic Primitives for Privacy Preserving Protocols

Introduction to Verifiable Delay Functions

VDF’s are functions that require a moderate amount of sequential computation to evaluate, but once a solution is found, it is easy for anyone to verify that it is correct. Think of VDF’s as a time delay imposed on the output of some pseudorandom generator. This delay prevents malicious actors from influencing the output of the pseudorandom generator, since all inputs will be finalized before anyone can finish computing the VDF.

When used for leader selection, VDF’s offer a substantial improvement over verifiable random functions. Instead of requiring a non-colluding honest majority, VDF-based leader selection only requires the presence of any honest participant. This added robustness is due to the fact that no amount of parallelism will speed up the VDF, and any non-malicious actor can easily verify anyone else’s claimed VDF output is accurate.

PREPARING FOR LIFTOFF: ELEVATING THE BUSINESS ANALYST INTO STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP

There aren’t enough BAs moving into strategy and leadership positions in organizations. And I’m not talking about leadership in a “subject matter expert” perspective, or even the idea of “leading without authority”. I’m talking about strategic, decision making, leadership roles, which impact the direction and success of their organizations. And that’s odd, because we have an understanding of Strategy Analysis, which positions us perfectly for that move. So, what’s stopping us? Or maybe, what’s holding us back?

The Missing Pieces of the Digital Transformation Puzzle

The business world is in a constant state of transformation. And the most common of these are digital transformations.

And yet, despite all our practice, we have a less than stellar track record with transformations. The whole point of a transformation should be to improve the way you do business, and to not revert back to the old-world way of doing things.

So, what’s the deal? Why are so many failures?

In this session we’ll explore the often overlooked components of People and Process, and the role they play in successful transformations.

Learning Objectives:

-Examine the common causes of failure in digital (and all) transformations
-Understand the role of People and Process in your transformation efforts
-Learn strategies to increase your odds of a successful transformation
