September DetermiNews: The month in source to pay and contract management

Determinews Blog Masthead

“‘Agile’ is really a perfect descriptor for Determine – it applies to the people, the thinking and the technology. Determine is good at change.”

This quote, from our new Chief Marketing Officer, Gérard Dahan, applies not just to Determine as a company, but what we strive to help our customers achieve, too.

Flexibility, agility, change, transformation – these are the concepts that have been front and center in our industry and communications all month (and since our inception, really). The world is shifting at an ever-accelerating pace; in this era of dynamism it’s not going to be the strongest who thrive, but the most agile.

Charles Darwin said it is the most adaptable to change that survive. But “adapt” is such a passive, or even reactive, idea. In this day and age, proactivity is what’s going to be a bigger determinant of success. That takes alignment of people, processes, data and goals, a collaborative, empowering culture, and technology that creates a seamless conduit to putting your strategies in motion.
