COVID-19 – Reinventing Ourselves to Last!

October 8th 2020

Reinventing Ourselves to Last

The current global pandemic is disrupting our social, economic, and personal environment. I am proposing to you today a reflection that aims to support your managerial approach in this imposed step back.

First, the diversity of economic activities and the intrinsic nature of each industry results in variations in the goals that each company can set for itself during this turbulent period.

Far be it from me to think the vision I share with you is a panacea for everyone's challenges.

Shift to Lean Management With CTRL

CTRL management solutions enable and drive the application of three key Lean management principles through some unique features of CTRL’s application platform: CTRL/Smigg, our modular and integrated global management system.

  • Muda: the elimination of anything worthless, be either time or material
  • Muri: optimizing and simplifying the company’s processes to reduce or even eliminate overwork and overload
  • Mura: the variability, or irregularity of the application of processes by material or human resources to increase the quality and volume of goods or services produced

More than just a technology platform, CTRL/Smigg is a business operational platform that offers tremendous flexibility to adapt to the entrepreneur’s vision and key processes.

Construction Site | Web and Mobility

In recent years, all sectors have been shaken up by the forced revision of their business model with the advent of the web and mobile technologies.

With new possibilities for the project manager and the site manager to increase their management efficiency and the quality of their deliverables, the construction industry is no exception.


April 3rd 2017


Coming from an IT division of an engineering consulting firm, CTRL was founded in 1992.

Document Management | Construction

The volume of documents and communications in the construction industry is no secret.

In fact, few are those who minimize the administrative burden that directly impacts their projects' profitability.

Today's computer science offers us these quick and instant recipes, which are, on the surface, quite simple to implement.

Managing Resistance to Change

Have you ever had the impression that you were being told anything when faced with a simple prerogative in the progress of a project? That you were being served illogical comments about your structured approach? Comments that were not fundamentally focused on constructive dynamics and advancement of the project? If so, rest assured, you are not the only manager in this situation.

SOA in Management Mode

The web and mobility multiply the operational dimensions of an ERP computerization project. Classical methodologies for deploying systems that were already producing mixed success are now facing an augmented reality, a Rubik's cube of 10 by 10 in terms of the variables to be managed.

This multiplication of variables can more than ever lead a company to significant issues if the computerization project's management is not adapted to the new operational paradigms introduced by web and mobile technologies.

CRM – XRM, Back to the Future!

January 23rd 2013


During the past few years, I have had the opportunity to be invited to present the operational concepts behind CRMs (Customer Relationship Management), a conference during which I was asked to introduce the less familiar concept of XRMs (Extended Relationship Management).

It is very much intrigued that I had to answer basic questions relating to the operationalization of the tool instead of questions that focused, for example, on a vision, such as “What more could I do in the future with a CRM, what would be my next step?”.

The End of the Web… Seriously!

February 15th 2012


I'm not used to it, and, above all, I have no interest in sensationalism, polemics for polemics, in short for demagoguery. But here, the misinformation is a bit too exaggerated for me. Excuse this post, maybe a little more emotional; I will recover my senses for the next one.
