For Whom?

If your task is Business Performance Measurement (BPM)  and you want to improve on your enterprise scorecard by doing a better job of taking into account organizational adaptive functioning, then the software template component of this report bundle, a very detailed (412 pp.) analytic hierarchy implemented in Expert Choice 11, will be indispensable to you.

Overview of Report

KMCI Online Press, the Adaptive Metrics Center, and Executive Information Systems, Inc.  are proud to release The Open Enterprise Software Template: An Analytic Hierarchy Framework for Measuring Aspects of Organizational Adaptive Functioning. Here is an overview of the report.

This Report bundle provides the framework structure you need to create adaptive scorecards and associated metrics in the form of a software template implemented as an analytic hierarchy using Expert Choice Software. An analytic hierarchy is a conceptual structure that breaks down a high-level abstraction into its dimensions, components, sub-components and so on. The template is meant to be used as a reference work. In it you can find hierarchical structures specifying a variety of key constructs related to organizational adaptive functioning, the high level abstraction serving as the "goal' Of the analytic hierarchy.

 

The constructs covered in the template include: Quality of Adaptive Support Processes and Outcomes; Distributed Organizational Knowledge Base Quality; Knowledge Process Outcome Quality; KM Process Outcome Quality; KM Processing Quality; Knowledge Processing Quality; Problem Production Quality; Knowledge Production Quality; Information Acquisition Quality; Individual and Group Learning Quality; Knowledge Claim Formulation Quality; Knowledge Claim Evaluation Quality; Knowledge and Information broadcasting Quality; Searching and Retrieving Quality; Sharing Quality; Teaching Quality; Quality of Decision processing and Outcomes; Extent of Openness of Decision Execution Cycles (DECs); Quality of DEC Outcomes; and numerous others including constructs dealing with the strength of the tendency to self-organize around various processes; transparency, epistemic inclusiveness, trust, and extent of collaborative integration. You work with the template by modifying the structures to create your own measurement models and metrics. You never use the whole detailed model, but abstract parts of it that relate to your interests and use your own ideas the rest of the way.

 

The report bundle includes the Report which is an introduction to the Open Enterprise Template, the Template itself, and a link from which you may download a 30 day Expert choice demo license to explore it.
