I’m re-reading Hammer and Champy’s “Reengineering the Corporation”. In their new preface, they quote an anonymous person as saying “IT allows us to make worse decisions sooner.”

Couldn’t agree more with that observation. When I worked at CTP, we used to illustrate the futility of automating inefficient business processes with the following diagram. From my experience over the last decade and more, we keep strapping IT rockets to the business dog and hope to get a Cheetah.
