Dynamic E-Business Implementation Management

How to Effectively Manage E-Business Implementation


  • Bennet Lientz, The John E. Anderson School of Management, University of California, Los Angeles, U.S.A.
  • Kathryn Rea, The Consulting Edge, Beverly Hills, California, U.S.A.

Implementing e-business requires a dynamic approach that can respond to changes in technology, management direction, customer and supplier behavior, and competition. Many traditional project management methods don't work with e-business. This book presents proven real world management methods that are adaptive, dynamic, and flexible in an e-business environment. It tackles the central issues of e-business: the burgeoning market for "buy-side" extranet/Internet procurement and supply chain management/business-to-business, Web-based transactions.

Dynamic E-Business Implementation Management is written for people who need to make technology and the Internet into part of their core competence.
