Where does a POC fit in within an enterprise? Our Digital Transformation overview image below is depicting where in the process a POC may fit - as you consider whether a POC is right for your enterprise.

Design thinking is a critical methodology to both understand and apply as you consider a POC and especially as you progress to MVP or even the 1.0 version of your intended product.
