Small and mid-size businesses need rapid, low-cost, successful implementations. It's time to help them achieve all three goals. Implementers always start with good intentions whether they're professional consultants or company personnel. Then the process starts to break down because of lack of resources or experience. In some cases, the breakdown occurs because of unwarranted optimism. For those instances, I've kept a magic wand in my office for many years.
This book is written for business owners, managers, and technology personnel. Most of the book addresses project culture--recommendations for the business owners and managers contemplating or involved in a business management system implementation. The remainder of the book addresses more technical decisions and processes that can be undertaken for a rapid implementation. I've added the last two chapters because I needed to write those stories down and stop telling them to anyone whom I could corner long enough to listen.
This book doesn't develop an entirely new approach of project management. It relies upon components of common project management theories. It also suggests that many common project management processes may be set aside.

"The lessons and insights in this book are the foundation on
which any small to mid-size enterprise should focus their next
business management system implementation. Each story and
outlined concept not only reveals what to change, but also how to
implement it and how it will impact and improve your
organization. Having worked with Gloria through four system
implementations since the late '80's, her integrity and excellent
communications always helped us to successfully convert all while
keeping costs under control."
