For some people there is nothing more satisfying than the prospect of going it alone, making a point, doing things differently, pushing boundaries and achieving independent success.

I recently took part in a management workshop, which saw two competing teams manufacturing a particular structure.  This was a simulation exercise using Lego blocks in which we had to make as many structures in a minute as possible and deliver them successfully to the “customer.”  The customer would then quality check the output and advise each team on how much revenue had been [...]

ERP projects can potentially touch every part of the business, and even the ones that are limited in scope have a dramatic effect and touch virtually every part of the business in some form. When you are early in the planning stage, and when speaking with experienced sales representatives who have seen first-hand how dozens and hundreds of ERP implementations have transformed organizations on dramatically [...]

I recently took part in a SYSPRO office challenge cycle race at the Cape Argus 2014 event. If you’ve read anything about the race, you’ll know that the charitable fundraising by the UK team was for a cause very close to my heart. The cause in question is a special needs school near the K3 SYSPRO offices, where my mother has worked for over [...]

As population numbers continue to rise and pressure continues to mount for global food production, the world is looking to Africa to step up to the challenge. While many may simply assume that a shift to industrial farming methods is the answer for increasing production, the inevitable resulting environmental degradation where such methods are used suggests that this is not the best way forward for [...]

Last week, I ordered a birthday present online for a dear friend from my favorite chocolate store. The shop’s unique and quality products have quickly made them my go-to-store for gifts over the past few years. However, over the past six months or so, they’ve become quite popular and I’ve found that the once easy ordering process I used to experience with them has [...]

The easy way out

Author: | Post Date: 13 Feb 2014

Human beings are strange creatures in many ways. One of the habits we all have is a tendency to avoid doing a difficult job today in favor of a quicker workaround, despite the fact we know in the long run we would be better off implementing the proper solution at the start.
