By embracing what might be called a Best Practices Enterprise philosophy that focuses attention on sound fundamentals, businesses can begin to introduce new programs, and extend existing programs, that position them to be nimble and quick while still growing and evolving into broad-reaching and highly profitable organizations.
The seven business programs that constitute The Best Practices Enterprise philosophy include:
Program-centric strategic planning
Resilient IT architecture design
Portfolio-based project management
Uninterrupted business redesign
Cross-cultural workforce inclusion
Continuous employee improvement
There are certainly other best practices that could have been considered. However, these seven are the most important. They effectively cover all of the people, processes, and technology elements that make up every organization.
