In some organizations, lip service is paid toward creativity.
The explosion in information technology serves as a driver, an enabler of processes. Data and information flow freely and quickly unlike in the past. Today, a customer can communicate requirements in a short period of time. A company, such as a manufacturing facility, must respond accordingly if it hopes to retain the customer. If a company continues to rely on legacy systems that impede rather than enhance process performance, the customer may elect to go elsewhere for the product or service. In addition, old systems add to the overhead which creates waste where, in turn, the cost is embedded in the price of the product or service.
