Evaluating the Actual ROI of New Software Implementation
Implementing tools and software rollouts to improve business and IT processes is a risky move, both financially and organizationally. Such implementations, when not considered with diligence and meticulous care, frequently end up providing the opposite of what management initially expects.
Case in point is the recent IT implementation problem that caused Philippine fast food chain juggernaut Jollibee, McDonalds’ top competitor and with thriving branches in the USA and other countries, to halt operations in 72 stores in Metro Manila. This botched IT upgrade, a supposed 0.5-billion peso (around $11.37 million) project, resulted to lost sales of 6% for just the seven days of August, which, in Jollibee’s 2013 revenue terms, is equal to roughly 92 million pesos.

Project Management: Striking the Right Balance Between Human Capital and Software
When managing a project, it is normally expected that all processes and activities essential to the completion of a project are completed on time and within budget. It is, more often than not, the “on time” and “on budget” parts that identify success in project management.
The Project Management Institute (PMI) defines project management as “the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently.” To ensure this success and aptly consider yourself an effective project manager, should you manage and execute every little detail of the project management plan yourself?
Business Process Improvement: Putting Individuals at the Core
The more complex the process, the lesser the chances of achieving high-performing results, as individual efficiency is inversely proportional to process complexity. The reason for the increasingly growing complexity is simple: Businesses are becoming more and more dynamic, and operations such as helpdesk management, invoicing and customer relations are becoming less predictive, making it extremely challenging to foresee the next set of steps and efficiently model or create a process template. Traditional BPM (business process management) solutions are, at best, restrictive, and continuing to rely on them for constantly evolving process rules can be a risky business move.
