June Rumiko Klein's curator insight, September 5, 2015 7:16 PM

In all new technology, a successful implementation in the organization is the key ingredient to success.  A poor implementation does not mean the technology doesn't work.  A systems approach, with many adjustments for why "something failed" or didn't in all cases, will help to fine tune implementations.  Root cause analysis is key to avoiding reacting only to symptoms.  To do this type of analysis during and after implementation requires resources and leadership at the top.
