I wanted to interview these agencies because they represent the tip of the spear when it comes to introducing new innovation inside of companies looking to take advantage of disruptive drivers – both competitive and digital – and rethink their business models.

I asked each agency for examples of how they worked with their clients’ enterprise architects and business architects when introducing new innovation.
