My Focus Experience 2017 by Holly T. Kutil When we are privileged to attend a conference and represent our company, we are asked to prepare a report with action items following the experience.  So this year instead of just my rambling blog about focus, I decided to share that report with you. The thought is that you might like to prepare a similar report for your executive sponsors so they can see first hand that their money was not spent in vain. The ROI on the NAVUG conferences goes far beyond a dollar value and aids in creating a stress free and happy work environment for all both in and out of our ERPs. I also make recommendations in regards to ISV's, ...

"Going back to business: If that applies to boys and girls at school, I think it also applies to CEOs like me, and entire organizations, like Microsoft." We could summarize this brilliant strategy in one sentence: ...
