Article Series on Design Studio, Part 1: What Is It?

It’s time to kick off another LawsonGuru Letter article series. Last time we did this, it was a series on reporting—which ended up being comprised of over a dozen articles. This time, we’re going to take an in-depth look at Lawson Design Studio. The length of this series is still open-ended, and I’ll continue to add to it as time (and reader feedback, of course!) permits.

In the first couple of articles, the primary objective is to lay the groundwork. We will explore Lawson Design Studio: What it is, what you can do with it, where it fits and when you should use (and more importantly, should not use) it.

Business Innovation Lessons From NASA
The Saturn V moon rocket, designed to fly Apollo astronauts to the moon, was 363 feet tall and was one of the most powerful rockets ever built. Yet, just eight years before the launch, NASA's leadership and engineers were intimidated by President Kennedy's 1961 declaration that we would land Americans on the moon by the end of the decade. Later, they'd confess that in those early days, they "did not even know what they did not know."

We’re Number One!

It’s not often that one gets to say “we are the best”, but Medstar Montgomery Medical Center (MMMC) now has that honor. I’ve had the privilege of working with MMMC [formerly Montgomery General Hospital] for over a decade.  Truly a fantastic group of IT professionals, and I’m proud to be part of their team!  So, […]

Another Update on Alleged Patent Infringement

Back in 2011, Lawson responded to an Alleged Patent Infringement by replacing Requisition Self-Service (RSS) with Requisition Center (RQC). In the meantime, Lawson has been acquired by Infor, but the patent case still lingers. Here’s an update. Some of you might have received this notice from Infor, and are unsure how this might impact your […]

Starting with the fact that I was actually […]
