Leading Global Technical Communities: an Enterprise Architecture Case Study

Featuring Grant Ecker, VP Global Enterprise Architecture, Walgreens Boots Alliance and E.G. Nadhan, Chief Architect & Strategist, Red Hat

Many leaders have a challenge of activating strategic and technical talent across their organization.  That is exactly the role of an enterprise architect leader who is sometimes described as part coach, part referee. This designation is appropriate.  Enterprise architects are responsible for decomposing strategy into execution across the enterprise with sustainable solutions. Their challenge? Bringing together diverse IT groups, subject matter experts and technical communities to form holistic teams, and leading them to deliver successful outcomes.

Challenge accepted. In this compelling discussion, two industry leaders discuss their fascinating work and how the enterprise architecture approach can benefit you in bringing multiple generations of technical leaders together across your organizations.
