Transformative and Lasting Change

The A-PLUS Approach:


• Technology can't be imposed but must be integrated with and complement business processes and practices, community needs, and people growth.
• Technology solutions are tools and must be suitable for the activities, processes, and standards they support.
• Technology solutions must be holistic to avoid undermining by short-sighted quick fixes or poor project implementations.
