To work with any organisation, whether it be on IT systems or more general matters, it is essential to fully understand the business and its objectives. Successful IT solutions are based on a realistic assessment of the requirements of the organisation and its people first and then selection and use of the appropriate technology. Much investment in IT is wasted by selecting inappropriate systems and by inadequate user training.
