Often maligned as a weakness, the ability to compromise in challenging situations is one of the most powerful assets for any business. Rigid, unbending approaches to change, issues and problems will only result in failure. Working with partners, vendors and co-workers demands that the intelligence and fortitude to effectively compromise be at the forefront of all discussions.
In the software world, everything is black and white. Grey is not an option. Therefore, the adoption of a software solution requires that compromises be made on both sides. Software was not meant to solve all issues in a business. Business cannot change completely to the process flow of an application. Both parties must be willing to work together to provide a solution that works in the real world. This is where the power of compromise becomes of the utmost importance. The maturity and respect shown on both sides will ultimately result in the success of business.
