Governance of Federated Business Models


During the last twenty years, businesses migrated from vertical integration to a virtual model, outsourcing all their non-core functions. This has created challenges in aligning the strategies and activities of all these functions dispersed across the supply chain, each in separate legal entities. The next phase of evolution to emerge is the "dynamic federation", or federated supply chain which is governed differently than both vertical and virtual businesses.

The Players of Software-as-a-Service Business Models and Finding the Best Value Propositions

If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It!!!


“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” If this proverb were applied in today’s operations, every organization would be in a reactive mode of maintenance and work against the lean manufacturing concepts.

Plateau as a Service for Talent Management


Being a human resources (HR) and customer relationship management (CRM) analyst is definitely a privilege.
