In my last column, I discussed how companies fall into purchasing the wrong business performance management (BPM) software solution. Getting past that first hurdle, organizations that select the right software can still get off on the wrong foot for their initiative and miss a significant opportunity. That's why we have continued this discussion - other ways to get a false and unproductive start with business performance management. Knowing what not to do is an important companion to your knowledge of best approaches to BPM.
