Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Adds Dysfunction to the Windows Family

Software for Real People Part One: MindManager Feature and Functions


Many software applications are indispensable for the operation and management of the enterprise. They, however, may actually stifle creativity--arguably the most valuable aspect of human capital--by requiring the user to adapt to the tool rather than have the tool supporting the user.

Let''s look at an example: the creation of a web site.

Interdependence of supply chain partners: A briefing session with PW and Bombardier




powerpoint  very informative set of PowerPoint slides. The presentation showed how critical the on-time delivery of every supplier’s part is and how these deliveries become part of the manufacturing process. The lateness of a part is very expensive to PW, so much so that PW charges suppliers up to $1,000 for a late shipment or for poor quality.

Deltek's Second Bite at the IPO Cherry (Part II)


Well, a few months after Part I of this blog post was published, which focused on Deltek's pre-New Mountain Capital private equity investment era, the time has finally come for us to analyze why being again publicly traded should (or should not) work better for Deltek this time. If one is to judge merely by the most recent financial figures, it would appear to be working well, but my focus here is

Therefore, I would imagine a healthy uptake on the EPM suite (and its parts) amongst Deltek’s large government contractor installed based, given the need for compliance with these new, non-negotiable federal mandates that make those gravy train contracts a matter of the remote past.

While those are certainly considered “technology,” they’re not collaborative technology solutions supporting a single version of the truth, one-to-many and many-to-many collaboration, and multi-process, multi-tier performance measurement and benchmarking, which I believe S&OP Stages 3 and higher require.   We see a strong desire for a platform—a business network—supporting both enterprise and trading partner collaboration, and cross-functional man Read More

Mobilizing Change Part Two: The Case for Action Method


The case for action is intended as a living document, to be updated and referenced by the business and the project team.

Boutique Vendors Can Bring Big Value


What is a boutique vendor? It tends to be small and highly focused. It is typically very strong in its chosen area. It will often prove to be the solution with the greatest source of value. These qualities make it worthwhile to expend the effort of looking at boutique vendors that focus on your situation.

powerpoint  Focus is not a PowerPoint slide, a brochure or a web page. Focus is about how the company organizes its business to bring value to specific situation.

To buyers, it defines their business situation. Vendors Read More
