All rights reserved The earlier we know the impact of an activity, the more directed (efficient) we can manage the change Resources Challenge • We cannot1) efficiently manage change without feedback about our progress • Implementing metrics also costs resources The challenge: Reach the desired situation with minimal resources in a limited time period 1) Exception: a sufficiently accurate model about the system is available. Per definition this is not possible for complex systems. Change ManagementCurrent situation Desired Situation

Therefore a significantly lower success rate was expected. Nevertheless, in the meantime the success rate is again at the same level.

All rights reserved The Balanced Score Card helped to master the key challenges Conclusion Ecosystem  Within the ecosystem, TechnoWeb has a clear position in technology related topics  Changes in the ecosystem had no impact to the success of TechnoWeb’s Urgent Request Actionable Metrics  The design of actionable metrics opened our eyes as we discovered the missing digital trace for a class of users  measures have been derived and are currently implemented Innovation Chasm  Significant effort spent to reduce complexity of GUI and offering the Technology Portal functionality  First positive impact due to migration of another channel to TechnoWeb (main impact will follow next year) Challenge 2 Challenge 1 Challenge 3
