Manage through Gartner

Whenever I hear “best of breed” implementation, I want to run for cover.  “Best of breed” tells me that we are about to spend a ton of money, not worry about requirements, invite an army of consultants, implement a product that doesn’t fit in a really messed up way, and then have to constantly force our users to use the damn thing even though we see little point in it ourselves. 

I’ve been through a number of “best of breed” implementations and they’ve all gone this particular way.

 To paraphrase Stephen Covey, seek first to understand, then to implement.

I'd like to have something really impressive to say here, but it's just not in the cards. Maybe later.
