Using a case study approach, this report describes lessons learned from the response of the Air Force to Y2K and makes recommendations for managing ICT complexity, aligning organizational and ICT strategies, and minimizing risk.

Strategic Marketing for High Technology Products: An Integrated Approach (Routledge Studies in Innovation, Organizations and Technology)

by Thomas Fotiadis

In order for High Technology (HT) companies to tackle contemporary demanding market challenges, they frequently deploy time-reduction strategies with respect to product launch. Marketing of technology related products – and especially cutting edge ones – involves a complex and multidimensional bundle of specific and unique characteristics, such as the complexity of products, the intensity of the competition, confusion and/ or fear of adoption among consumers, fast pacing changes in the external environment. The very nature of the interrelations that evolve as part of the dynamic process of strategy formulation contributes further to the formulation of a very challenging environment which is described as tumultuous, volatile and turbulent. These specific features, qualities and characteristics constitute the core of the innate need for an integrated approach that requires and depends on the cooperation and coordination of specific functional competencies. This book employs a systemic approach that accommodates the integration of specialized departmental capabilities as a fundamental prerequisite and a cornerstone for the successful navigation of high-tech organizations in their extremely competitive environments. It provides a solid and extant context of compact and consistent cognitive background that is specific to the HT strategic marketing field, and a strategic tool that utilizes, relies and is built on the turbulent environment of HT rather than just overlooking, avoiding or ignoring it, and that assumes a proactive point of view, capitalizing on characteristics specific to this field, through the provision of a strategic managerial and marketing model that is overlaid onto a reliably assessed foundation of dynamic qualities, with a long-term orientation and scope, albeit one that would be easy to apply and which will generate immediate results.

Strategic Security: Forward Thinking for Successful Executives

by Jean Perois

Strategic Security will help security managers, and those aspiring to the position, to think strategically about their job, the culture of their workplace, and the nature of security planning and implementation. Security professionals tend to focus on the immediate (the urgent) rather than the important and essential—too often serving as "firefighters" rather than strategists. This book will help professionals consider their roles, and structure their tasks through a strategic approach without neglecting their career objectives. Few security management books for professionals in the field focus on corporate or industrial security from a strategic perspective. Books on the market normally provide "recipes," methods or guidelines to develop, plans, policies or procedures. However, many do so without taking into account the personal element that is supposed to apply these methods. In this book, the authors helps readers to consider their own career development in parallel with establishing their organisation security programme. This is fundamental to becoming, and serving as, a quality, effective manager. The element of considering career objectives as part-and-parcel to this is both unique to only this book and vital for long-term career success. The author delineates what makes strategic thinking different in a corporate and security environment. While strategy is crucial in the running of a company, the traditional attitude towards security is that it has to fix issues quickly and at low cost. This is an attitude that no other department would tolerate, but because of its image, security departments sometimes have major issues with buy-in and from top-management. The book covers the necessary level of strategic thinking to put their ideas into practice. Once this is achieved, the strategic process is explained, including the need to build the different steps into this process—and into the overarching business goals of the organisation—will be demonstrated. The book provides numerous hand-on examples of how to formulate and execute the strategic master plan for the organization. The authors draws on his extensive experience and successes to serve as a valuable resource to all security professionals looking to advance their careers in the field.

Strategies in E-Business

by Ignacio Gil-Pechuán Daniel Palacios-Marqués Marta Peris Peris-Ortiz Eduardo Vendrell Cesar Ferri-Ramirez

In this volume, the authors apply insights from a variety of perspectives to explore the alignment among strategy, organization design, process and human resource management, and e-business practices on developing successful social networking programs--with particular regard to applying such initiatives against the backdrop of the global financial crisis and challenges to traditional business models. Showcasing in-depth case studies, the authors present emerging approaches to analyze the impact of investment in social networking sites, aligning internal resources, and measuring effects on positioning, branding, and new business creation. The fact that a growing proportion of the world population has a relationship with social networking sites could prove very valuable for companies. The question is whether this represents a business opportunity, whether companies know how to make the most of it and if they will make the necessary efforts to adapt to these new platforms. In the modern world, social networking sites have enormous potential for large as well as small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); most companies are aware of the need for a presence on social networking sites, but at present their e-business strategies are part of their medium and long-term strategic planning and only a small percentage have been put into practice. In short, this book attempts to answer the following questions: Is there a business opportunity for companies on social networking sites? Do they know how to make the most of it? Are they willing to make the necessary effort to adapt? Can e-business strategies contribute to company creation and the success of already existing businesses? And if so, how?

Strategische Onlinekommunikation

by Olaf Hoffjann Thomas Pleil

Onlinekommunikation und speziel Social Media sind als besonders wichtige Herausforderungen des Kommunikationsmanagements erkannt. Kaum ein Unternehmen verzichtet mittlerweile auf die Beobachtung von Diskussionen im Internet und die Umsetzung eigener Kommunikationsstrategien im Social Web. Dort verändern sich für die PR und die Organisationskommunikation zentrale Aspekte: Öffentlichkeiten können heute sehr viel schneller entstehen. Es sind neue Formen der Meinungsbildung zu beobachten, die zunehmend weniger den Mechanismen der Massenkommunikation folgen, sondern Ergebnis netzwerkartiger Prozesse sind. In diesem Umfeld entstehen gleichzeitig neue Formen der Beteiligung, die durch entsprechende niederschwellige Instrumente im Internet erst ermöglicht werden. Aus Organisationssicht verändern sich damit unter anderem Entstehung und Pflege von Reputation oder das Management von Stakeholderbeziehungen. Zehn Jahre nach Beginn der Fachdiskussion zu PR und sozialen Medien gibt dieser Band auf Basis aktueller Untersuchungen Einblick in die Praxis und in aktuelle Herausforderungen der Organisationskommunikation im Internet.

Strategy For An Army Center For Network Science, Technology, And Experimentation

by National Research Council of the National Academies

The U.S. military has committed to a strategy of network-centric warfare. As a result, the Army has become increasingly interested in the critical role of network science. To a significant extent, this interest was stimulated by an earlier NRC report, Network Science. To build on that book, the Army asked the NRC to conduct a study to define advanced operating models and architectures for future Army laboratories and centers focused on network science, technologies, and experimentation (NSTE). The challenges resulting from base realignment and closure (BRAC) relocations of Army research, development, and engineering resources--as they affected the NSTE program--were also to be a focus of the study. This book provides a discussion of what NSTE is needed by the Army; an examination of the NSTE currently carried out by the Army; an assessment of needed infrastructure resources for Army NSTE; and an analysis of goals, models, and alternatives for an NSTE center.

Strategy Rules

by David B. Yoffie Michael A. Cusumano

Between 1968 and 1976, Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve Jobs launched three companies that would define the world of high technology, create more than a trillion dollars in value, and transform our lives. How did they realize these incredible achievements? Strategy Rules examines these three individuals collectively for the first time--their successes and failures, comonalities and differences--revealing the business strategies and practices they pioneered while building their firms.Eminent business professors David Yoffie and Michael Cusumano have studied these three leaders and their companies for nearly thirty years, while teaching business strategy, innovation, and entrepreneurship at Harvard Business School and the MIT Sloan School of Management. In this enlightening guide, they show how Gates, Grove, and Jobs became masters of strategy. As CEOs, each approached strategy and execution in remarkably similar ways--yet markedly differently from their erstwhile competitors--keeping their focus on five rules: Look Forward, Reason Back: They determined where they want their companies to be in the future and could "reason back" to identify the moves that would take them there. Make Big Bets, Without Betting the Company: All three men made enormous strategic bets but rarely took gambles that put the financial viability of their companies at undue risk. Build Platforms and Ecosystems: Technology leaders have to create industry platforms that enable other firms to create complementary products and services that make the platforms increasingly valuable. Exploit Leverage and Power: Gates, Grove, and Jobs often turned opponents' strengths into weaknesses and used enormous resources (once they had them) to dominate competitors. Shape the Company around Your Personal Anchor: From Gates' understanding of software to Grove's devotion to process discipline and Jobs' obsession with design, all three built their companies around their personal strengths while compensating for their weaknesses.Strategy Rules brings together the best practices in strategic management and high-tech entrepreneurship, providing unique insights for start-up executives as well as the heads of modern multinationals.

Stream Ciphers

by Andreas Klein

In cryptography, ciphers is the technical term for encryption and decryption algorithms. They are an important sub-family that features high speed and easy implementation and are an essential part of wireless internet and mobile phones. Unlike block ciphers, stream ciphers work on single bits or single words and need to maintain an internal state to change the cipher at each step. Typically stream ciphers can reach higher speeds than block ciphers but they can be more vulnerable to attack. Here, mathematics comes into play. Number theory, algebra and statistics are the key to a better understanding of stream ciphers and essential for an informed decision on their safety. Since the theory is less developed, stream ciphers are often skipped in books on cryptography. This book fills this gap. It covers the mathematics of stream ciphers and its history, and also discusses many modern examples and their robustness against attacks. Part I covers linear feedback shift registers, non-linear combinations of LFSRs, algebraic attacks and irregular clocked shift registers. Part II studies some special ciphers including the security of mobile phones, RC4 and related ciphers, the eStream project and the blum-blum-shub generator and related ciphers. Stream Ciphers requires basic knowledge of algebra and linear algebra, combinatorics and probability theory and programming. Appendices in Part III help the reader with the more complicated subjects and provides the mathematical background needed. It covers, for example, complexity, number theory, finite fields, statistics, combinatorics. Stream Ciphers concludes with exercises and solutions and is directed towards advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics and computer science.
