Process Intelligence: six tenets of intelligent process improvement
Why do some process improvement efforts succeed and others do not?

- Challenge conventional wisdom
- Stretch beyond process mapping
- Follow the facts
- Buy runs, not players
- Carry it across the goal line
- Two heads are better than one
