Great discussion, thank you to the many contributors: • We shared experiences - the overwhelming antipattern was Product Transformation within the IT silo. • We discussed the need to 'follow the money' • The need for cross enterprise transformation to be driven from the top • The frustration with the top 'team' often not being a team, not speaking the same language, not investing the time to learn and in the worst cases presenting as experts • We discussed Enterprise Project Management Office changing to E Product Management office, not many success stories here yet but many trying to move to an Enterprise Value Office as an easier route. • We touched on several of the great resources available from the DOES Forum - published freely on ITRev and often useful when you can't get people to invest the time in reading a whole book - two particularly - Project to Product Transformation and Evolving the funding model. • Many people struggle with never ending transformation, we discussed that the only 'done' in agle, DevOps, Product or Digital Transformation is done as in 'given up' thanks again

What discussion was this? Very interested in "product transformation within IT silo" as antipattern?

NM I see how BOFs work now. Still interested in the antipattern aspects.

Hi Charlie. We discussed the problems organising around value streams in a product transformation when the transformation is being driven by IT and the parts of the value stream outside the IT silo aren't on board or changing in response

IT can create platform teams on its own, but anything customer or user facing requires direct involvement of business leadership, e.g. 2-in-a-box.

Any effort in isolation starts to look like a anti-pattern. If you have control over your intake and access to your customer, that's a recipe for a solid start
