Webinar (CPA Crossings): CFO Series-Fixing System Risks: Two Keys to Success


The system failed; it does not work. The system does not deliver as promised. Processes that used to work – suddenly blow up. Too often we work in an environment where one or more systems fail. We will discuss the two key causes why most business systems crash. What are the steps to take that will reduce system risk? Why do we unintentionally design systems that are doomed to fail?
