Have you ever been in a situation where something not-so-good happened, and you looked back and said “man, I wish I had….” Most of us can think of a time in our lives when we had the opportunity to prevent an undesirable outcome by acting – and didn’t.

Unfortunately, this reactive response to support ends up costing you more in downtime, resources, efficiency and money in the long run.
