Leveraging 21st Century Technology

To leverage 21st century technology, use IT as an
essential constituent of Your Business process.
The assimilation of technology to perform busi-
ness processes is a critical competitive advantage
of owner-managed business over the Fortune 100.

Business process and information technology are not separate activities.  IT must
be the way that Your Business process is done.

With IT, size is a barrier to entry.  To achieve a significant result, a large organization must make a huge investment.  At owner-managed business scale, a technology investment is far cheaper and a significant impact is quite likely immediately upon adoption.

Tactically, this service is implemented in conjunction with an Information Tech-nology Management agreement.  Periodic reviews with the owner-manager establish a prioritized list of "Pain/Gain" opportunities.  At each review, the top organizational difficulty and the best organizational opportunity are identified.  For each, one IT initiative with high and measurable Return on Investment (ROI) is identified and implemented.  And the process is repeated.

The cumulative effect of these initiatives is to reliably enhance staff and organ-izational competency and to increase the technological leverage of the business processes.  The measured pace ensures that staff are not overwhelmed with technology, but actually assimilate IT into daily practices.  This encourages use, maximizing realized ROI.  Note this is a "top down" approach, often coupled with "bottom up" initiatives flowing from Business Process Formation activities.
