- Find a list of ideas and topics and prioritize them (Stakeholder Workshop and individual follow-ups): Within organization, process and technology, search for improvements required to close the gap towards the vision. Group ideas and topics by themes. Use a do-ability (capability maturity) / impact matrix to prioritize the themes. Focus on quick-wins. Consider other initiatives such as private cloud / PaaS.
- Management Presentation (Stakeholder & Senior Management Meeting): Present the vision and roadmap.
