I think the article took a little different take on the tweet than I did when I first read it, but I love the idea of using the EMR as a powerful change agent in your organization. Many executives say they wish they could change some things about their organizations. EMR can be one method to help implement some of those changes. Far too few are using it to really effect change for good in their organizations.

This feels a bit like semantics for me and you know I avoid semantics. What I do know is that EMR can make an ugly workflow really ugly or a beautiful workflow really beautiful.

This road already seems paved. The question I have is whether we’re willing to rip up the road and replace it. There’s some signs that it’s going to happen, but I’m still not confident in those signs.
