Implications for OBPM, SCM and Organization Design
This chapter will discuss the research findings in terms of the implications of an OBPM model for enterprises in the contemporary global knowledge economy. It will answer the question of what the results of the research mean and how the findings can be extrapolated to further develop the model and broaden its applicability to any firm operating in the new era of global knowledge economics. The need to develop this new framework is argued on the basis that practices of the past are inappropriate for businesses of the future, and that the major findings of this research support a new approach based on the tenets of this book. The way forward is then viewed as the steps defined in a proactive strategy focused of corporate change to the new mode of operations. What must change is discussed, as is the ultimate objective.
