Whitepaper – Delivering Sustained Value and ROI with Task Management Software

Jim Collins writes in Good to Great that “good is the enemy of great” – an important lesson for any business seeking to remain competitive and relevant.  Years before, however, Aristotle, Confucius and Voltaire proclaimed that “perfect is the enemy of good” which captures the challenge faced by many organizations when they attempt to deploy an enterprise-wide business process management (BPM) solution.  Driven by multiple factors including the complexity created by the evaluation and selection of methodologies, implementation of business process standards, and tool selection it can easily take a year or more before a working system is in place...

In several recent conversations with potential clients of Swift Software,... Read More »
