Our Technology Transformation Team’s Recommended Reading List

In addition to creating our Business Technology Enablement Framework (BTEF), our Technology Transformation team shared their recommended reading list. Insights gained from resources like these, and our experiences working with clients to use technology to transform their business model or support decision-making that affects a tech-enabled strategy, make our approach to consulting seasoned and unique.

Connect with our Technology Transformation Team and Learn more about BTEF

SDLC Partners created the Business Technology Enablement Framework (BTEF) as a holistic enterprise tool that measures technology capabilities across 15 areas and disciplines. The framework accelerates change because it enables leadership to fully understand current capabilities, as well as the areas where they need further investment because BTEF assesses within the context of the current environment, business goals, and digital strategy.
