Chapter 3 – Creating Business Value
Business organization and business processes
Business strategy is required to deliver the end-result product or service
Michael porter says strategy is a broad-base formula for how a business is going to
compete, what its goals should be, and what plans and policies will be needed to carry
out those goals
Porter said that, if industry is open and has few barriers to entry, then more competitors
will enter the industry, then it will increase competition
If there are barriers to entry, then it will be harder for new competitors to enter
IT is an important part of any company
IT professionals make sure that hard work helps the business reach its end result
Business as open systems
Open system model indicates that a business operates by transforming inputs into
outputs and by constantly interacting with its environment
2 important parts of the business environment
oStakeholdersit is a person or company that has an interest and an influence on
how a business will function in order to succeed such as a shareholder or
government agency
Stakeholders could be external (in the environment) or internal (within
organization)
For example, if you shop online at a company’s website, and you notice
problems on the website and describe those problems to that company,
your suggestions may influence future e-commerce operations. You had an
interest and influence, so you are a stakeholder
oOrganizational boundary allows a business to receive inputs and produce
outputs
oA business must be aware of what is going in its environment, so that they can
remain competitive by responding to opportunities or threats
