I’m at BT’s Adastral Park giving a ‘Thought Leadership’ talk (available to all BT staff online) next week. It should be exciting and I plan to give them an idea of my current and future thinking on dynamic digital infrastructure. In particular I am keen to extend our thinking on how such infrastructure (constructed with cloud provided modular services and platforms) create new forms of coordination  which extend beyond existing either technical, managerial or social coordination. I am keen to discuss how such coordination extends beyond traditional institutions (such as the firm) through cloud services limiting the power of existing institutional arrangements (e.g. The CTO) to control how their digital infrastructure is coordinated and dynamically evolves into the future. Obviously thoug I will also try to make it an enjoyable and fun talk without too many of these technical terms!
