Why this is interesting for a Chief Digital Officer (CDO)?
According to Porter, Lines of Business (LoB) are the standard for structuring companies and their areas of responsibility. Examples are Sales, HR, Logistics, Production, etc. Therefore this is elementary for Chief Digital Officer (CDO). Often so-called silos or silodenks are formed, i.e. the departments do not think cross-company or cross-process. With the help of end-to-end processes, this can be broken down. In addition, the agile approach offers many possibilities to break up companies and their business areas in their silo thinking.
