Overview

As change goes, technology implementation is as big as it gets. Technology is a breathtaking investment. A typical ERP effort often takes 2-3 percent of revenue and a heck of a lot of work, devouring profitability, time, focus, and energy. Why do we do it? For the huge upsides: competitiveness, survival, domination, success. This book is for anyone whose neck is on the line to deliver.

How do you make sure you deliver? The key is to get people to use technology correctly. Technology is a tool. If you can’t harness the power of the people in your organization to use that tool correctly, you’ve lost.

The result is The Technology Change Book.
