"Moving at the Speed of Start-Up"

These days, everyone talks about transformation. But what happens when you have a billion dollar start-up and you are creating a brand new CIO organization and a brand new core business system architecture from scratch?  I will discuss the difference between the “clone and cleanup later” approach vs the “greenfield” approach.  Also, we would include our approach/philosophy re: change management vis-à-vis our core business systems and workplace technology (apps and collaboration tools).
