  • 3. SMEs IN THE FUTURE INTERNET
    • “ The best way to predict the future is to create it”. Peter F. Drucker
    © ComVantage Consortium - 2011
  • 4. Background
    • Future Internet (FI) is a “means” and not and “end” for SME business operation.
    • FI should leverage a competitive advantage for SMEs.
    • A clear formulation of what is @ FI for SMEs to take is not yet ready.
    • The issue is not “TO BE” or “NOT TO BE” a FI-SME but how and why “TO BECOME” a FI-SME.
    © ComVantage Consortium - 2011
  • 5. Background
    • SMEs are trapped in a resource crossroad towards (Future) Internet technology embracement.
        • There is an aggregated demand for IT services.
        • Individually, the variability of the specific enterprise demand is too large.
    • SMEs are “organic”, responsive, flexible and adaptive and require different managerial approaches for predominantly flat structures.
    © ComVantage Consortium - 2011
  • 6. Background
    • SME activity focus is on medium-term survival.
    • Business case evaluation for advanced IT solutions is difficult in the SME context.
        • Lack of control over business environment + limited market share.
    • SMEs take the dual role of PROSUMER in the FI context

  • 7. TASK FORCE MISSION STATEMENT.
    • “ Management by objective works - if you know the objectives. Ninety per cent of the time you don't.”
    • Peter F. Drucker
    © ComVantage Consortium - 2011
  • 8. Mission
    • The Task Force mission is
        • (to establish) clear and concise statements
        • (about) FI technology & solution values
        • (in terms) of support for traditional and innovative business processes
        • (contextualised) to the specific SME nature.
    © ComVantage Consortium - 2011
  • 9. RESEARCH QUESTIONS TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE TASK FORCE.
    • “ An expert knows all the answers - if you ask the right questions”
    • Anonymous
    © ComVantage Consortium - 2011
  • 10. Research Questions
    • But Small AND Medium Enterprise (SME) is a too broader business category to call for a “single” solution from the Future Internet. So…
        • What a competitive advantage means for SMEs?
          • What are the technological and business ingredients to build a competitive advantage for an SME?
          • What ingredients should be “unique” for SME competitive advantage?
          • Where can the Future Internet technology make a difference in terms of SME business activities and organization?
    © ComVantage Consortium - 2011
  • 11. Research Questions
        • How should a competitive advantage be built for SMEs?
          • Should all the required ingredients be put together at the same time to facilitate a “real” SME competitive advantage?
          • What are the “real” incentives for an SME to become a FI-SME?
        • Will FI technology enable mass-customization of SME Enterprise (collaboration) services?
    © ComVantage Consortium - 2011
  • 12. TASK FORCE ACTIVITIES

    • Orison Swett Marden
