Getting into the Details—E-CSF

The success of a project is often dependent on the people, processes, and capabilities that cut across multiple disciplines. To make this success consistent across other projects that are of a similar nature, similar people, processes, and capabilities need to be adopted. However, leaping from a small success to an organization-wide success is never easy. Businesses that have tried organization-wide adoption often experience failure in their efforts. The reason for this is a lack of proper and consistent integration among defined disciplines and processes. The result is sub-optimization and confusion, as well as potentially unnecessary expenditure. There is a need for collaborative efforts with incremental and planned adoption to integrate any new concepts, methodologies, or processes across an organization.
