Learning Enabled Business Transformation

The eLearning Forum has an excellent seminar and in-depth case study on a framework for “Learning Enabled Business Transformation”:

“Breakthrough technological solutions and business/process models create new opportunities for optimizing the 4 forms of intangible value/capital “Human, Customer, Partner, and Intellectual Property” to enable high performance.”

Approaches from “The Extended Enterprise” over “Strategy Mapping” and the “Balanced Scorecard” to “Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)” are covered. The first presentation lay the foundation with the relevant business context and present the framework. This is followed up by the FCC Case study.

Two New Tools That CIOs Want

A recent McKinsey article, “Two new tools that CIOs want” (May 2006) (subscription required), noted:

“The software-as-a-service model can cut the total cost of deploying some classes of enterprise applications by 30 to 40 percent as compared with the total cost of purchasing and maintaining them in house. Of the senior IT executives we talked with, 38 percent said that they plan to use the software-as-a-service approach during the next 12 months.”
