Problems and Their Symptoms
+ New technologies fail to achieve predicted return on investment because the business is still using old business processes, because processes were not redesigned, and the process change was not effectively managed
+ Customers hear inconsistent messages, and are given “the runaround” when interacting with different departments in a business because roles and responsibilities have been left undefined
+ Headcounts by department are above expected levels against published benchmarks because too little effort was expended on organization design
+ An acquisition fails to achieve predicted financial goals because due diligence was inadequate or the integration was poorly planned and executed
+ Major business initiatives are often behind schedule or over budget because of poor enterprise program management practices
