I don't agree with you on the big is bad and small is good analogy.

James -

Great to count you as a reader. I don't think I made that analogy. The fact that a large entity / orgamism is inefficient compared to a small one is pretty well established. That doesn't mean that "big" doesn't have it's own advantages, including greater access to capital, wider distribution of resources, better access to critical knowledge, etc. A large company couldn't launch Google search or the Macintosh (where IBM and Xerox clearly had the technology first), but a little start-up can't build and distribute a jumbo jet. The inherent inefficiency of a large organism doesn't mean that they can't survive and play a vital part in the economic food chain. My point was simply that the inefficiency of a large organization gives them a lot more upside with regards to most TMS initiatives because there is usually a lot more fat to cut.

Again, thanks for stopping by.

Curious George

Taleo making that purile statement is like saying EA is 'playing' a role in solving world hunger - Bah!

Jeff Hunter

(CMU is a partner of EA's and uses some of our technology for programs like this.)

Manager Extraordinaire

I have been a manager through the Management by Objectives; Participative Management; Mentoring; Continuous Improvement Process fads. Six Sigma is just a new coat of paint on an old porch.

Oh and one more thing not that it's important: Did I mention that I have an MBA?
