This isn't an article about why traditional digital strategy doesn’t work anymore. It’s an article about why it can’t. 
The traditional foundations businesses relied on in the past to provide a clear enterprise digital strategy, business case, and roadmap forward are non-existent today. Complexity and time to value continue to rapidly expand, while the time horizon of what can be confidently forecast/anticipated has shrunken from years to months. The equation of ‘planning to act’ has flipped. Today, digital strategy can only be defined through action.

We partnered up with UNHCR, Mercy Corps, volunteers from Google, and Translators Without Borders to develop an app called “Translation Cards” to make sure refugees are not lost in translation.The app is already available on Google Play Store, but this is an on-going project. And this is where (and why!) we come in. Sign up for our female-led #Hackathon in San Francisco on July 30 here:

"Connected devices are getting smarter and more autonomous, and the required standards for interoperability and robust implementations are coming." - Mat Henshall, IoT Initiative Lead at ThoughtWorks #IoT  
There is much hype around the Internet of Things (the linking of machines and sensors to the Internet), but is it deserved? At its core, IoT is just the Internet, with things on it. But these things are different from the computers we are used to dealing with. In short, the IoT is the same but different.

Ageism in tech is as severe a diversity issue for women as race and gender homogeneity. #WomeninTech 
On the last day of the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, I sat on stage with four developers watching incredulously as 150 stadium seats filled to capacity. Named for the computer programming pioneer and Navy Admiral Grace Hopper, this conference is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists, and our workshop, #TechAtAnyAge, was the very last session of the 3-day event.

Just as two developers might pair, developers and designers can (and should) pair too. #UX #Software
Plenty of people are talking about how organisations should capitalise on design, yet few are talking about the practicalities of what it looks like to actually deliver it. Pairing developers and designers removes the natural suspicion between them, is fun, easy, and presents value to customers faster, making businesses—and teams—happier.

Leading a complex organization through a digital transformation is not easy. It takes guts, grit, and the relentless pursuit of simplicity. We’re a diverse group of technologists seeking like-minded people to work in North America who aren’t afraid of the big ball of mud. #ShowUsHowYouDo

#Blockchain is increasingly talked about, but people often lack a concrete understanding of what it is, particularly when it comes to its underlying technology. This new article by ThoughtWorker Justin Ramos explores the tech behind the tech.
Blockchain is increasingly mentioned in various business circles, but people often lack a concrete understanding of what it is, particularly when it comes to its underlying technology. This article is the first of two which will focus on blockchain from a technical perspective. In this piece, we explore what blockchain is for those who have heard of it, and would like to know how it actually works and why it’s important. Next, we will showcase ho...

Check out all the blips featured across all the editions of our Technology Radar tagged as infrastructure as Code. It's a new feature and we would love to hear if it's useful to you. #IaC http://thght.works/1UwfvJ7

There are only so many 'red vs. blue buttons' and 'tabs or hamburger menu' tests that you can put into the field. #UX #ProductStrategy
Properly used, user research will destroy your product. This is a feature, not a bug. You have an idea, maybe even a great one. You’ve done your design sprint, your visioning session, your intense few days of white-boarding. You’ve built your draft roadmap, have a few personas and a well-worn copy of the Lean Startup. No plan, though, survives its first contact with the enemy.
