This is a very special interview and episode for me. Jason Kappen and I not only went to boot camp, MCT, SOI, and were deployed to 2nd LAI and Desert Shield/Desert Storm together, but he was the best man at my 1st wedding, he is the godfather to my children and the namesake of my oldest son. But more importantly, he has spent a 30+ year career turning marines into leaders. His insights into what works and what doesn't are hugely valuable. He has also seen the evolution and deployment of new technologies into a 'huge' public organisation and the adoption and adaption of a 245-year-old organisation into the modern era. He would be an unprecedented asset to any organisation and the fact that he has decided to help prepare the next generation of military leaders through the JROTC program is a credit to him. I hope the organisation and students know what a great man they have.

This episode I am cross-posting an interview I did on a truly great Podcast by Rumi Chavez, 'Jump Out of Bed'. I got to sit down with Rumi and Naomi Tae, a champion for Enterprise Design, and we talked about Enterprise Design, Enterprise Architecture, what the future holds for New Zealand and many other things. It is well worth a listen and so are all of the 'Jump Out of Bed' podcasts so subscribe to them as well.

This interview is from back at the beginning of March, pre-baby for me, and pre-pandemic and lockdown for the rest of the world. But I think the topics and discussion we had was still valuable and in some ways even more relevant. Rajesh is a Distinguished Engineer at IBM and an as-a-Service champion and I always look forward to learning something from him when we talk.
I am hoping to get caught up editing podcasts but I also am recording new ones, in quarantine, that I am hoping to bring forward.

My apologies both for this being a short podcast and for it being late. I am backing off of my podcast schedule to fortnightly until after my wife gives birth, as she is my primary podcast editor.
This week I talk about technology adoption for business and the challenges and pitfalls. Technology adoption needs to be a business and technology team co-work to get it right.
