 Extended Enterprise


What Is Extended Enterprise?

The term "extended enterprise" represents a new concept that a company is made up not just of its employees, its board members, and executives, but also its business partners, its suppliers, and its customers. The notion of extended enterprise includes many different arrangements such as virtual integration, outsourcing, distribution agreements, collaborative marketing, R&D program partnerships, alliances, joint ventures, preferred suppliers, and customer partnership.

Why Extended Enterprise?

Previously organizations have been thought of as linear entities, each with a linear value chain that consisted of all the activities required to design, market, sell, produce, deliver and support products and services. Suppliers and customers were thought to be "outside" the organization's domain. And the organization was depicted as a hierarchy of reporting relationships, primarily functionally aligned.

The new economy, with high-tech companies rapidly evolving and "old economy" enterprises embracing new ideas, brought tangible reality and urgency to new organizational forms. With globalization of markets, productivity pressures, scarce resources, intensifying competition, blurred industry boundaries and rapid technology change, new relationships and structures have emerged in all sectors of the economy. Modern organizations create new ways of delivering value to customers, new approaches to collaborating with suppliers along with critical thinking about organizational structure and purpose.

The Role of Information Technology

Technology plays a strategic role in the extended enterprise - in some cases driving the opportunity for change and in others facilitating collaborative relationships and inter-organizational operation. IT enables the openness, immediacy, information sharing, flexibility and adaptability that the extended enterprise demands. Information technology also enables customer responsiveness, speedy decision making, superb inventory control and greater visibility across the extended organization for demand planning.

Business Process Management: New Cross-funtional Management Model

Transforming the Traditional Functional Mindset

Excerpts from "BPM - Approaches & Best Practices" by Andrew Spanyi

In far too many organizations, senior management's traditional functional mindset represents one of the most significant barriers to change. Indeed, there is reason to believe that the traditional functional paradigm has done more to impede customer focused, business performance improvement over the past two decades than almost any other factor.

This way of thinking stands in the way of executives understanding and improving the flow of cross-functional activities which create enduring value for customers and shareholders. It promotes the type of thinking that impedes the effective deployment of enabling information technology. It promotes also 'silo behavior' and turf protection, and an undue pre-occupation with organization structure. This mindset contributes to the mistaken belief that if it was somehow possible to properly define the boxes on the organizational chart, and fill in the names of the "right" people in the key boxes - then the organization's performance will automatically improve. Yet, little is further from the truth. Further, it encourages a distorted view of performance measurement and executive rewards, shifting focus away from meaningful measures such as the timeliness and quality of services provided to customers, and towards less significant measures around functional departmental performance.

It reinforces a task focus and traditional command and control behavior, where questions such as 'What is the scope of my responsibility?' and 'Who are the key subordinates who can help me look good?' are foremost and top of mind. Moreover, traditional functional thinking has also led to outdated management practices in the areas of goal setting and problem solving and it stifles innovation. So what to do? How can you transform the traditional functional mindset such that your organization is designed to make it easy for customers to do business with the company and easier for employees to better serve the company's customers?

An effective way of transforming the traditional functional mindset is to embrace enterprise business process thinking and install enterprise business process management (EBPM) practices. What does this involve? Frankly, it requires a lot of very hard work, and concepts which will make some of your executives very, very uncomfortable. Why do it? Simply because the benefits of making this mental model transition are significant.
