| The Value Chain Shift', 2014||
Recently our co-authored booklet on 'The Value Chain Shift' was published. This booklet contains the results of a two year research project conducted by IMD, Lausanne. Topics studied were:
- Measuring corporations' cost and contribution to society
- Managing resource scarcities
- Scale and speed: traditional versus emerging market firms
- Optimizing IT-enabled processes and systems in the value chain: differentiation versus harmonization
- The organizational design shift
- How speed affects risks, opportunities and new business models in value chains
- CSR: moving from compliance to value creation in supply chain relationships
For this 2-year research project I acted as co-research director. Interested in a copy of this booklet? Send me an e-mail! firstname.lastname@example.org
