  6. Do modern performance measurement and management systems deliver superior results or would organizations be better off sticking to traditional financials?

  7. Did timelessness reflect a response to the apparent slowness of the pace of change compared with modern times, or was it its location outside modernity?

  8. Can grid modernization and new technologies provide a means to site equipment corresponding that the associated location costs are minimized?

  9. Is the it organization evolving/modernizing fast enough based on cloud capabilities, cloud native architectures and other new technologies?
