Limitations of Integration Systems

Systems don't integrate new product projects—people do. Even if the organization is able to design and install compatible systems to help integrate projects, these systems will not work if the people who manage the work don't use them. Configuration management as an integrating function in product development between design and production cannot be effective if the configuration manager does not see both ends of that spectrum. Project managers who are obsessed with schedule and on-time delivery at any price and do not take costs into consideration will not help the business succeed. The lesson is this: Individual project success should not be at the expense of the business itself. To ensure that this does not happen, company leadership must continuously work toward an integrative vision and process at all levels of the organization—leadership personnel must daily walk the integrative talk.
