Published on July 18, 2011 By Mike Oryszak

One of the common pitfalls I see with process optimization projects is that they tend to focus on a specific process at a time.  This may be ok when you are just starting out, or working with informal processes, but as the number of complex processes improves it is important to try and take a […]
