The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
If I can, I would like to take you into my imagination. Let us pretend we work at Widgets Inc. Now, Widgets Inc has been around for awhile and is going through a phase in it’s life where the technical decisions made by previous generations no longer seem viable. Our company struggles keeping it’s current infrastructure going, while at the same time wants to make some serious changes to it. One of the biggest challenges, we believe, is our lack of leadership in the company. If we had leadership with a grand vision to unify and replace all of our old architecture things would be so much better!
