Presidents' Message | Transitions, Partnership and Opportunities

International Perspective | Cross-Cultural factors and the Benefits of Local Key -Users

Implementing a new system can be more than just project management and technical challenges. In the context of a multinational organization, you can end up sharing your work environment with people coming from several nations and distinct backgrounds. When you take their nationalities, cultures, attitudes and technical skills, which differ from one person to another, all of these differences generate not only conflicts, but also misinterpretation or misunderstanding of guidelines during many phases of a project. This is crucial especially when the project is going-live, or when "emergency mode" is on. Read more here.

Lend a helping hand | Call for volunteers

If you are interested in volunteering for the SEMS and its initiatives, contact Charlene Yauch, SEMS president, or Daren Maynard, newsletter editor.
