e-business is already here and it is the key to future profitability.
Simply put, if you don't take full advantage then you're at a serious competitive disadvantage and vulnerable to the first competitor who does. We don't need to tell you the importance of e-business in today's economy, but how best to take advantage? It's not about jumping on a bandwagon it's about getting the right e-business strategy that delivers true competitive advantage.
e-business is about effective communication
Communication is key to e-business. Communication between every corner of your business — employees, partners, affiliates, suppliers, regulators, shareholders, customers… Online solutions reduce delivery times, improve accuracy and transparency while driving down the cost of business. They also provide access to broader markets, increase response times and provide data for intelligent decision-making.
The potential is huge but failure rates can be high, ROI disappointing. It takes real world experience and excellent project management to develop a successful e-business strategy. The essentials steps are:
Scope — objectives must be clear, achievable and consistent, project size manageable
Preparation — stakeholders must fully understand the project and their role
Specifications — such as a detailed Initiation Document and Functional Specification
Resource Planning — assembling the right team, minimising impact on the rest of the business
Communication — essential in combating mission creep and maintaining objectives
We will work with you to formulate the right strategy that will overcome challenges, take advantage of opportunities and meet your objectives.
A project charter is drafted to describe how the project will be managed and a project plan created to fulfil project goals in the most efficient way. A hierarchy of tasks, goals and achievements is supported by details such as time, costs, controls, and estimates. Sequencing then maps the interdependencies of tasks, timings and resources to meet the time and budget constraints of the project so a model of the project can be built.
