Are you brave enough to kill the dinosaur?
- Kill SAP, PeopleSoft, Oracle or whatever big system you use. Let’s face it you aren’t actually saving money by using it, everyone hates it and it costs a fortune to own in fees, upgrades and training. Get each department to run their own books – using Xero, with the corporate center aggregating them all up. (Is anyone brave enough to do this? – I’ve seen a multi-billion dollar company successfully run it self using one page spreadsheets)
- Use wordpress, joomla, silverstripe or any other free content management software for your internal and external websites. Give access to everybody and stop filtering.
- Buy your airfares at the last minute – you’ll sometimes get bargains and give yourself the best flexibility
