Today's enterprises are achieving incremental outcomes in a world of exponential opportunities. Why are their digital transformations falling short? Poor execution: enterprise capabilities are proving inadequate in areas ranging from portfolio management to software delivery. Now, ThoughtWorks' pioneering digital transformation experts introduce EDGE: a powerful new operating model that closes the gap between digital strategy and execution, so you can truly achieve continuous innovation. Fast, iterative, adaptive, lightweight, and value driven, EDGE addresses three crucial issues:

  • How people work together when major, fast-paced responses are necessary
  • How organizations allocate and monitor investment funds for initiatives based on their vision and goals
  • How organizations learn to adapt fast enough to thrive

Agile leader Jim Highsmith and his colleagues explain how EDGE embraces an adaptive mindset in the face of market uncertainty, a Lean Value Tree that encourages value linkage from vision to detailed initiatives, incremental rather than big upfront funding, and a focus on collaborative decision-making rather than artifacts and burdensome processes. Next, they illuminate EDGE's emphasis on managing change and transforming organizations by adjusting investment to reflect new strategies and reduce risk. You'll gain practical insight for leveraging EDGE in your organization, drawing on the unmatched experience of its creators and their pioneering clients.
