Implementing Performance Improvement & IT Upgrades
How to Deploy and Integrate Performance Improvement Solutions
A Two-Day Seminar
Making It Work in the Real World
After months of dedicated work, you and your team have designed a new business process that will leverage emerging technology and superior business acumen to dramatically improve all measures of performance. Now comes the hard part…implementing it.
The last decade has seen organizations in all sectors benefit from a renewed surge in productivity. These gains are the direct result of improved process management techniques and the application of new technology. Still, the business press reports many stories of failed reengineering efforts, insufficient ROI from enterprise software systems, and the rejection of new technology by workers. Why this disparity?
Because the challenge of implementing process or technology change is as great as the challenge of creating innovative business process solutions.
