Some Observations 

• The World is Flat: Technology and know-how are not only the domain of large companies • Process and content were once physical and analog. They are now digital, mobile and virtual. • Systems, applications and supply chain were once disconnected and vertical. They are now becoming connected and horizontal. This optimizes resources and unlocks new value.

• Your external and internal clients want SIMPLICITY. • The above is probably true for most of your existing infrastructure, but not your print procurement.

Today, most corporations.. 1. Meet with agency or designer/copywriter 2. Go through iterations including branding rules 3. Proofs, proofs, more proofs (cha-ching) 4. Order offset printing (minimum order rule applies) 5. Store that printing..... 6. .......in a warehouse or other storage site 7. Pay someone to manage that print 8. Oops! Found spec change or compliance issue......throw it out 9. Back to stage 1
