Tropical Island 1024x640 Three Ways to Move Beyond Your Comfort Zone with Modern BPM

There’s not much that tops Memorial Day Weekend. As I’m sure was the case for most, I celebrated the weekend with family, good food, and remembrance of those who protect our freedom at home and abroad. The three days of perfect weather were a bonus. But more than just the festivities of the weekend, Memorial Day symbolizes the unofficial beginning of summer!

Now is the time to look at the calendar and make those vacation plans to our favorite summertime destinations. Everyone seems to have that favorite family spot they visit every year, where new memories are made each time.

Though the yearly cruise or annual beach trip is a blast, recently my family and I have looked for summer alternatives. Our last trip took us down to the Florida Keys after a recommendation from some friends. We made a few soft plans, but pretty much went down south without much of an agenda and not knowing what to expect.

…And it was a blast! Talk about total relaxation (I’ve got some great recommendations on the best seafood in town if you’re ever headed that way). And this trip, which may become a vacation go-to, all started because we moved beyond our travel comfort zone and tried something new.

This got me thinking about BPM and businesses being hesitant to move out of their own IT comfort zones in adopting new and innovative technologies.

ap forum tips tricks ad 300x75 Best Practices: A New Tips & Tricks Webinar

Let’s face it. Mobile has become a way of life.

Think about it. When was the last time you didn’t have your iPhone….your Droid….your Galaxy within arm’s length?  A year ago?  Two? Five?

Mobile is now a lifestyle, and you don’t need IT analysts to tell you it’s blazed its way into the workplace.

So what’s that mean? It’s simple.  People work the way they live. As we’ve all become reliant on mobile technologies, we bring our devices to work.  We check our email from our phones, even sitting at our desks. We interact and collaborate.  We access information.  We take action…any time…all on our mobile devices. At home.  At work. At the beach.  At a sporting event.

“That’s great, Zach. But I thought this was a blog about the upcoming Tips & Tricks webinar.”

Yes….that’s correct.

It’s Spring!  And, in much of North America, Spring means baseball, a game rich in history and tradition.

CEOs and organization leaders now more than ever are adopting a mobile strategy to align with their business. The onset of mobile devices is nothing new. Walk up and down the street or throughout your office, and just about everyone is flashing the latest iPhone, or Android.

Spring is here, and if you are like me, you can’t get enough of the nice weather after what seemed like an eternity of winter. Warmer days mean plenty of sun, and before you know it, summer will be here! Like others, I enjoy traveling with family and friends during the summer months. But perhaps my least favorite part of the travel experience is getting through the airport. With what seems like never ending crowds, lines and delays, a destination just a short flight away feels like you have to cross oceans to get there.

Luckily for me and those impatient travelers, one airport is using modern technology innovations to improve process management and ensure the highest level of passenger service – at the world’s eight busiest airport. The USA Today recently profiled how airports are embracing technology to create a better customer experience, and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is leading this charge as it strives to become the “Airport of the Future.”
