By Michelle Adams |   May 15, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Many Excel users are familiar with this scenario: you enter your data into a shared spreadsheet. You try to save it and receive a notice that the workbook is currently in use. You decide between closing out and losing all your input or saving a second-version of the file and promising yourself to go back and merge the data later.

Technology Didn't Change So Your Business Could Stay the Same

By Michelle Adams |   Apr 27, 2018 2:30:00 PM

Technology changes. Why shouldn’t the way companies do business?

Business process redesign (BPR) is the act of overhauling an existing business process using new enterprise software as the catalyst for change.

A common challenge in BPR is the tendency to think that total and radical transformation is required. In a company’s efforts to fix the entire system, its management team or system design consultants launch an entire overhaul without careful regard for scope or impact on the employees who must keep “business as usual.” Eventually the project becomes too complex to manage and employees suffer. The fear of change is reaffirmed, and new developments are abandoned for status quo.
