Description

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.

Reviews

@qu:"E-business is complex and dynamic and Lientz and Rea present management methods that are adaptive, dynamic and flexible for E-business environments... The authors tackle the complexity of implementing e-business in a structured fashion, making it easy to use for someone about to launch into such a project... The authors have thus created a work which is ideal for an e-business manager or someone about to go into such a position. The book is not designed to be read from cover to cover but more like a reference work, suitable for specific cases or situations as they develop and when details are required... [it is] ...useful for those involved in e-business or for those ready to launch an e-business venture." @source:--AMIE PETERS, in www.FirstMonday.org, December 2000 issue
