Whilst I read the article with interest and am prepared to accept the claims, I struggle with the delivery. Prior to retiring, I rescued a large number of failing technology programs in the UK public sector. Also technology is inherently tactical in deployment rather than strategic.

For me, strategy must come first, with technology being one of the delivery options. Driven by the promise of gains from technology is a well trodden

path to the graveyard of failure.
