Organizations constantly seek to increase quality, productivity and efficiency. When deployed effectively, technology helps us eliminate wasted time and materials, increases efficiency, and improves service.

While incorporating technology into our operations is one of our biggest opportunities as leaders, it also presents one of our biggest challenges.
