Seems like CRM failure rate in in 2000, about 80%, after a few years it was much better.

Interesting Info Kevin, 60% failure rate is significant ....

Could there be both adapting to cope and adapting to win? Always amazed to see the percentage of failure that is socialized with these types of [referenced] articles.

@ Andrew Hold on to your hat!!!! Forbes reported "Why 84% Of Companies Fail At Digital Transformation" AND InformationWeek reported that "Over 60% of Organizations Have no Formal Transformation Strategy" NOT A VERY GOOD PICTURE!

Very interesting, thanks for sharing
