Known Typographical and Miscellaneous Errors in the Book's First Printing

The authors reluctantly admit that they are slightly less than perfect.  A big thank you to all of those wonderful mistake finders.  The world would simply not be the same without people that are great at pointing out the mistakes of others.  This page is for you! 

Authors' Notes

In Chapter 13 we introduce the Demand Driven Adaptive System (p.267 – 269).  The Demand Driven Adaptive System has since been revised to be called the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise (DDAE) model.  We could not make the correction in time for printing.  We have since extensively expanded the DDAE model.  Below is a graphical depiction of the DDAE model (replacing Figure 13-1).  For more information on the DDAE model visit the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise Model page on the Demand Driven Institute website.
