Agree with Sharon Donovan Hart's perspective on IT transformation relating to the "Need to build the foundation of the future that allows your company to grow." Of particular, the business dimension she talks about can be forgotten in practice.

I was recently speaking with a CTO of a startup. He pointed out that his competitors often build for the wrong things, as they run separate from the business. Alignment requires business and IT to work together. Reminded of the embedding IT into the point of contact theme.
