This Focused Performance Weblog started life as a "business management blog" containing links and commentary related primarily to organizational effectiveness with a "Theory of Constraints" perspective, but is in the process of evolving towards primary content on interactive and mobile marketing. Think of it as about Focusing marketing messages for enhanced Performance. If you are on an archive page, current postings are found here.
"Business software maker SAP expanded an initiative to target small and medium-size businesses Tuesday with five new software packages and plans for at least 20 more by the end of the year...SAP also offers software for companies with as few as 10 employees with a product called Business One, which just recently became available in the United States.
