Error Reduction: The Source of ROI You’ve Never Considered

Do you remember the “Where’s Waldo?” series of books? Each page was filled with an illustration of a crowd of people. Hidden inside the crowd was a tall, skinny man (Waldo) who wore blue jeans, a striped sweater with a matching hat and scarf set, and glasses.
