What is most surprising for me, is that both Japanese financial behemoths, to 1 which I belonged until very lately, apparently talk about Russia more than actually do anything.

Did the CIO do what he/she said he/she would do? While success can be considered a fuzzy term, any effort to quantify accomplishments and/or related projects to organizational/divisional/unit goals is effective.

The business process owners and Business Analysts are working of their suggestions at multiple levels throughout the organizations’ business process. They have functions and responsibilities to control, monitor, and control their procedures.
