As a mother of an avid horse rider, I have noticed a development where horses are now being bred to be far more athletic. In the ‘old days’, the preferred showjumping warmblood breeds had stronger hind legs to handle the propulsion of the jumps. Lately, the horses have been cross-bred with lighter more athletic breeds, resulting in a winning combination of strength and stealth. [...]

Most of our daily interactions are guided by what we expect from different types of relationships. With family we hope for reliability, security and protection. From friends we ask for loyalty and support. With lovers we demand excitement and intimacy. But it’s the social commitment we form with our colleagues that interests me here, our collective expectation that everyone will “Get the Job Done.” [...]

When I read a recent SYSPRO blog The Grace of Change, about a Seeker of Value, one customer immediately sprang to mind: Westlands Horticulture. A fast growing business, both organically and through acquisition, they always seem to be involved in one project or another with K3 SYSPRO. Finbarr McNamee, in his role as Group IT Manager is certainly the Seeker of Value within Westlands [...]

My previous blog was about the importance of leadership and executive buy-in during Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementations. Without top-down leadership, no one else in the organisation will buy-in either, and the company will not get much value from the software. (more…)

I may be turning into a grumpy old man. Last week my family gave me this dubious honour after a week, where I apparently complained about unruly children in my favourite restaurant (why are children allowed to run riot in public). This included the use of mobile phones in the same restaurant (clearly I was not in a good mood) and the use of [...]
