No. The problem is the local organizations are autonomous and so to dictate the IT solution from the centre would disrespect the business operating model!

Yes. That's how a VPEC-T workshop can help. This'll help get the business and IT aligned globally. To put it another way, we need to understand behaviour of the business both locally and globally.
