Making Multi-rater Feedback Work in Professional Services Firms


For many firms, continually moving people to new projects under different leaders is the only possible way to operate.

A Top 10 List for Meat Processors & Protein Companies When Considering a New ERP System


"The meat industry" traditionally supported by enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions has expanded into "the protein industry," which includes several non-meat sectors.

The protein industry also includes the manufacture of pet food, which has essentially the same ERP requirements.
