Organizations with a large forms population are faced with an ever-changing forms management dynamic. This dynamic is a lot like raising children – left alone, they will certainly get into trouble!

This presentation covers the process of conducting an enterprise-wide call for forms. It presents a step-by-step process map and suggests methods for keeping the project organized and on-track. The speaker draws on the experience of having been involved in many such projects and how to avoid common pitfalls and problems.
