Executives express widespread dissatisfaction with the ability of their organizations to assimilate and respond to business change, according to a new study issued by the Business Performance Management Forum (BPM Forum) and webMethods, Inc.

Forty-five percent of these executives believe that their IT departments are either having "significant difficulties" keeping pace or "can't keep up at all."
