This book connects business sustainability to supply network-based value creation and enhancement, and tests a number of key propositions in complex supply networks to identify key challenges. Examining practical issues such as carbon trading, green product development, worker safety, child labour and relations with local communities, Business Value and Sustainability advances the understanding of sustainability in supply network management. In presenting a supply management perspective including a tighter control of the supply base and the development of supplier capability through collaboration with NGOs, the authors contribute to both the theoretical advancement and practical development of this field. The book aims to raise the sustainability standards of businesses in an increasingly complex and inter- and intra-connected global supply network.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The beginning of the 21st century with the fear of the "Year 2000"-threat (Y2K) became a milestone for the "Information Age", a term coined for the post-industrial stage of leading countries [ ] when information and information technologies become the main strategic national resource which results in an avalanche growth of information dependence in all spheres of society and state activities. . In organisations the awareness of the dependence on information has led to corporate initiatives to treat information as an asset, which includes various efforts for its protection. Management trends such as "knowledge management" have identified "knowledge sharing" as a new means for achieving competitive advantage, thus promoting information to be disseminated. Due to an ever closer relationship with customers, suppliers and even competitors, organisations have expanded their "information network" outside of the original boundaries. The dualism of protection of information assets on the one hand and a free flow of information has been identified to become a challenge for organisations, described as [ ] how to satisfy this need to share information without exposing the organization to undue risk. . With the information society implying radical changes, the need to act has been accelerated by a new mindset reacting to the advent of "e-business". Information Security (InfoSec) is often mistaken to be a purely technical issue, handled by information system (IS) departments and used as a synonym for firewall, access controls, and encryption of e-mails. However, because of the risks involved for an organisation - including legal liabilities, loss of trust and severe financial damage - InfoSec needs to be a top management issue. Then again, although paying lip-service to treating information as an asset, top-management usually does not act upon it: the average InfoSec spending in the U.S. today is only 0.4 percent of an organisation s revenue. In the following work it will be shown that a new approach to and a new understanding of InfoSec is vital for organisations to excel in the challenges faced by the information environment of the 21st century. The key focus of this study is to link existing InfoSec approaches to the concept of business value by ensuring their strategic fit with the corporate objectives. The first part will provide a common foundation with an evaluation of the role of information for organisations, relevant trends [...]

This book will appeal primarily to postgraduate business studies students who seek to better understand how to use technology to improve organizational performance. It provides insights into how technology can both positively and negatively influence the way we create, share, and act upon information and knowledge. Taking as a starting point the premise that we now live and operate in a knowledge intensive, information-driven world, where data is arguably the most valuable resource any organization possesses, it argues that we cannot see technology simply as a commodity or a cost to the business. Therefore, every organizational decision-maker must be more aware of the impact technology can have on the knowledge practices and habits of employees, building and sustaining collaborative relationships, and the ability to realise strategic goals in a dynamic and highly competitive environment.

The tangible value of increased water efficiency, reuse and recycling and improved social license to operate are moving more companies to adopt water stewardship strategies. This book frames an expanded strategy for water stewardship and business value creation, including brand value, that benefits a range of stakeholders including consumers, customers, investors and employees. The book shows that until recently the linkage between full business value and water stewardship has been missing from the corporate agenda. This linkage and value creation from a leading water strategy is increasingly important to socially responsible investors and "aspirationals" who value companies that have a social mission or focus to their overall business strategy. In general the largest portion of a company’s market capitalization is intangible value and understanding how a water strategy contributes to this intangible value is essential. The authors include cases studies and a framework or path forward to guide companies as they seek to build leading water strategy that goes beyond water stewardship to drive full business value from this investment. The book establishes the linkages and value from an integrated water and business strategy and an approach for companies to follow.

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1, University of Vienna (Institut für Betriebswirtschaftslehre), course: E-Business, language: English, abstract: The era of information technologies (hereafter IT) has lead to a shift from exchanging goods to services and at the same time to a tremendous increase of companies operating in the field of electronic business. As continuous changes of the environment take place in this field, it is crucial for the companies to come up with new technologies and solutions on a regular basis (Oliveira et al. 2002). This complex condition leads to on-going development, adaptation and maintenance of eServices, which are seen as a central part of any electronic business activity due to their contribution to interactivity, connectivity, increase of customer satisfaction as well as mass customization (Sheth and Sharma 2007). Succeeding in these mentioned tasks guarantees long-term benefits for the companies, helps them to achieve their stated targets, as well as to retain a strong competitive advantage, which is of a great importance. However, eServices need to be managed properly in order to really be a benefit for the company. One of these fundamental management tasks includes the continuous business value assessment of eServices, which is not only suitable for the calculation of the business value, but is also able to indicate, whether the eService contributes to the achievement of the company’s key performance indicators and how well it performs. The assessment of eServices business value is conducted using appropriate methods and metrics, which lies the midpoint of this Master thesis examination.

Here is a blueprint for doing exactly that. This book shows how CIOs can bridge the gap between IT and the rest of the organization and finally make IT a strategic advantage rather than a cost sink.
