It investigates its origins in terms of complex adaptive systems and compares the influ...ences on the business world to those of systems observed in the natural world.

            Effective Lifecycle Management of Healthcare Applications: Utilizing a Portfolio Framework

            Effective Lifecycle Management of Healthcare Applications: Utilizing a Portfolio Framework (Paperback)

            The rapid growth of software applications within healthcare organizations has made it essential to have defined methodologies and formal processes for the management of the entire IT portfolio. Utilizing a portfolio management framework throughout an application's lifecycle will ...provide the necessary structure to ensure that all new applications are properly evaluated, and once implemented, remain relevant while continuing to meet organizational requirements. While an organization may have a few large 'organization-wide' systems such as the EHR, lab or radiology systems, they also have a large quantity of other clinical, administrative and research systems. Some larger organizations now have hundreds of software applications to support and manage. The Information Technology (IT) staff must be able to implement new requests while still maintaining the current application portfolio. Utilizing a standard, repeatable, process will help to manage these large portfolios of software applications. This book will review the management of applications throughout their lifecycle, from initial request through disposition. Best practices dictate that every newly requested application undergoes analysis followed by an approval decision from the organization's governance committee. The initial implementation project must include activities to prepare for ongoing support while ensuring the application is compliant with all security, privacy and architecture requirements. An application spends years in operations and maintenance where changes occur regularly through configuration and release management, or additional projects. The cycle continues until disposition. Understanding when to dispose of an application is just as important as deciding when to implement a new one. A defined process for disposing of an application ensures all parts are properly removed or destroyed.

            Managing Project Competence: The Lemon and the Loop

            For companies to be successful, the management of an organization needs to understand how competence evolves and how it can be utilized and linked to the organization's goals. When executive managers understand this, there is a higher probability that the people working in the or...ganization will be more satisfied with their working situation. Satisfaction increases because competence will likely be central in the organization, with focus on motivating people to develop new competence, healthy internal mobility, and organizational learning. Positively managing competence in most cases leads to a win-win situation for the company and the individual. This book describes how we as individuals, as well as organizations, can be efficient in the development and utilization of competence. It takes two perspectives of competence and connects them in a project-intensive and knowledge-intensive context. The first perspective is the Lemon, which focuses on individual competence and the role of organizational culture. The Lemon framework takes the concept of competence based on knowledge and experience and explains how a person can apply knowledge and experience to different contexts. It changes the concept of competence from being static to being agile and dynamic. The second perspective of competence is the Loop, which models how organizations can manage not only to the benefit of organizational strategies and goals but also to an individual's future career. The Lemon and the Loop are the basic tools to make competence and performance management agile and effective. This book presents practical ways to acquire new knowledge and skills. One method is REPI (Reflection, Elaboration, Practicing/Participation, and Investigation), which can be used for training, coaching, competence development, agile performance management, and much more. Readers of the book are given new insight into the concept of competence and how both people and organizations ca

Improper governance and unethical behavior have led to such well-known financial disasters as Enron and Madoff Investments. The book arm...s managers with two important tools: Small Sins Allowed (SSA) and Line of Impunity (LoI), which together can be the foundation for renewed and vigorous corporate governance. SSA is a powerful tool that helps managers establish a level above which adherence to ethical standards is expected. LoI aids managers in identifying ethical fault lines that may exist in a company and helps to keep unethical behavior in check.
