Organisations find themselves under time pressure to deliver large-scale system implementation without ever standing back and understanding what will it actually deliver for the organisation and what's the long-term technology strategy both in HR and across the business. Unfold the following menus for more information.

In the fast-paced modern business, organisations are often caught in a race against time. They frequently implement large-scale systems without pausing to envision the actual impact or long-term technology strategy.
