    Every high achiever has probably been criticized as a 'control freak' at some point.

    Honestly - at the extremely low outlay - the capacity to accelerate your journey, increase productivity and be a more informed buyer (when combined with what actual business problems you are trying to solve) I would be extremely hard pressed to not undertake it.

    Standard Requirements is a straightforward guide. It is a tool to help develop a detailed vision of all areas impacted by an implementation, and a useful tool for scoring readiness and implementation quality.
