The danger of precedent


We are implementing CRM and Dialogue systems.

And in relation to my last post about boundaries, constrains and restrictions I am frustrated about this implementation. Adding new systems gives you a lot of new possibilities as long as you play the game according to the systems specifications.

The worst part is that the limitation is not necessarily based on a technical issue, but on precedent. “Everyone is doing it this way”.

Bold marketing is not based on precedent. It’s built on challenging the rules or just breaking them.

To boldly go where no man has gone before

To all you system integrators and consultants out there: Stop arguing based on precedent.

Just give me a price and a timeline (or if I should talk to somebody else).

Just following the crowd is not really my thing…
