Start Right in E-Business: A Step by Step Guide to Successful E-Business Implementation (E-Business Solutions)
Bennet P. Lientz and Kathryn P. ReaE-business occurs when a company has established critical business procedures and activities to support e-commerce transactions. Using this definition, e-commerce is part of e-business--a company needs e-commerce to implement e-business. Utilizing e-commerce, however, does not mean that a company has transformed into an e-business. E-business is implemented only when a company changes its internal procedures to take advantage of the e-commerce technologies.Interest in the evolution ("e-volution") of e-commerce into e-business is a growth field. With the early November announcement that GM and Ford were forming online marketplaces for their suppliers, they placed themselves at the center of new e-business ecosystems that will transform their entire way of doing business. Many firms are increasingly discovering opportunities to move away from simply selling products on the Internet to being able to reinvent their conventional supply chains (as in the auto makers' case) and to being able to offer custom-built products (as Dell Computers does now). Key Features* Implement e-business in 13 specific proven actions* Implement e-business with reduced risk to your business* Coordinate e-business implementation with current business* Use e-business as a means to renew and improve your current business* Motivate employees to participate in e-business* Achieve more flexible business processes* Deal with technical, vendor, process, and other e-business issuesAnswers Questions Such as:* How do you implement e-business without tearing up your company?* How do you define your new e-business processes and synchronize them with your current business?* How and with what do you manage outsourcing in e-business?* How do you measure your e-business implementation and results?* How do you change your organization to be a spearhead for e-business?* What is the best way to develop your e-business implementation strategy?* How do you quickly gather data on the competition and your current business?* How do you design new business activities that modify your current processes and define e-business?

Smart Growth: Building an Enduring Business by Managing the Risks of Growth (Columbia Business School Publishing)
Edward D. HessWall Street believes that all public companies should grow smoothly and continuously, as evidenced by ever-increasing quarterly earnings, and that all companies either "grow or die." Introducing a research-based growth model called "Smart Growth," Edward D. Hess challenges this ethos and its dangerous mentality, which often deters real growth and pressures businesses to create, manufacture, and purchase noncore earnings just to appease Wall Street.Smart Growth accounts for the complexity of growth from the perspective of organization, process, change, leadership, cognition, risk management, employee engagement, and human dynamics. Authentic growth is much more than a strategy or a desired result. It is a process characterized by complex change, entrepreneurial action, experimental learning, and the management of risk. Hess draws on extensive public and private company research, incorporating case studies of Best Buy, Sysco, UPS, Costco, Starbucks, McDonalds, Coca Cola, Room & Board, Home Depot, Tiffany & Company, P&G, and Jet Blue. With conceptual innovations such as an Authentic Earnings and Growth System framework, a seven-step growth funnel pipeline, a Growth Decision Template, and a Growth Risks Audit, Hess provides a blueprint for an enduring business that strives to be better, rather than simply bigger.
