Embrace Business Change

A Language Lesson in Change – Don’t Become Obsolete

Change and evolution are natural processes. As we grow and respond to our environment, humans advance, our languages evolve, and we strive to improve and enhance our existence by responding to change – especially in business. And if we didn’t – where would we be now? Probably dead, posthumously powering our more successful descendants’ motor vehicles like our deceased dinosaur friends. Former CEO of GE, Jack Welsh, said it best, “If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, then the end is near.” Continue reading

Salvation Army

The Challenge for International Non-Profits

International not-for-profit organizations have complex structures and reporting requirements to meet the needs of a large stakeholder audience. The ability to report easily and accurately is vital to ensuring resources are appropriately deployed and efficiency is optimized. Not only that, but like all organizations today, we are subject to ongoing internal and external change.
