OVERVIEW: This book presents a practical coverage of strategic planning of digital enterprises with emphasis on a computer aided methodology and a toolset. This work is based on corporate experience, consulting assignments, teaching graduate level courses, and research in computer aided strategic planning, engineering and management. The emphasis and format of the book has been greatly influenced by practical insights gained through numerous consulting assignments and discussions with practitioners from different industry segments and World class organizations such as the United Nations, the Fulbright Foundation, Bell Communications Research Lab, IBM, Society of Manufacturing Engineers and Ford Motors. Development of graduate level courses in this overall area at the University of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, and Fordham Graduate School of Business have also influenced this book. The salient features of this classroom tested book are: - Emphasis on enterprise planning for digital transformation - Focus on the planning, integration, security and administration of smart digital enterprises - Balance of business and technologies, not just pure business or technology - Numerous case studies and examples to illustrate the key points - More than 300 illustrations that help to capture the key ideas - A step by step methodology that shows how all the pieces fit together - A computer aided toolset (SPACE - Strategic Planning, Architectures, Controls and Education) that can be used in classroom exercises, hands-on corporate training workshops and computer aided consulting for small to medium businesses (SMBs) around the globe - Lecture materials, homework assignments and team projects for graduate level education - Learning tools in each chapter such as break points with review questions to help the readers as they move along. The basic premise of this book is that although strategic thinking and strategic planning are extremely important in organizations, they are not sufficient to assure success. The strategic plans have to be translated into working solutions that can be implemented and managed.
