    your Value Stream . Dominica DeGrandis Director, Digital Transformation
  2. @dominicad © Tasktop 2018 Three Things Complexity drives necessary specialization

    Specialization causes expensive disconnects Make connections visible to reduce communication debt.
  3. @dominicad © Tasktop 2018 WHAT’S THE POINT? A defragged value

    stream improves flow Value Stream: all activities done to plan, design, build & deliver items that provides biz value The hardest thing we do is communicate across teams. Delivering value to customers quickly requires fast, smooth, flow of work.

    Breaches & Hacks
  9. @dominicad © Tasktop 2018 More & more security layers &

    policies bolted on to defend the network & assets from cyber threats, This increases complexity. Different expertise is required for each vendor. 95% of organizations use network security devices from multiple vendors. https://www.wired.com/insights/2013/01/uncovering-the-dangers-of-network-security-complexity/

    the demand for cybersecurity professionals will increase to approx. 6 million globally by 2019. ISACA estimates global shortest of 2 million cybersecurity jobs.

  19. @dominicad © Tasktop 2018 Adenosine* heart stress test Healthcare costs

    from disconnect workflow Dr’s orders: “No caffeine 24 hours prior to test.” Nurse: “Would you like some coffee?” https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/study_suggests_medical_errors_now_third_leading_cause_of_death_in_the_us US medical errors cause > 250k deaths/yr, 3rd leading cause of death * pharmaceutical used to assess blood flow to the heart. Pharmacy tech handed nuclear medicine tech wrong stuff. Instead of heart tracker injection the Dr ordered, my mom was injected with a bone tracker. oops! oops!
