TLS Continuum Part 66: The Missing Element in Process Improvement

TLS Continuum Part 60: A new perspective on the TLS Continuum

I have written extensively in this blog series about the power of the TLS Continuum in your organization. Like most of you I read the professional media and books to stay on top of what is going on in our industry.
