Inside this Issue:
NOTE: It's been a pleasure bringing you ECMgt.com
over the last 3 years. We've enjoyed the knowledge we've gained pulling it together
and the interaction we've had with you. In 2002, we've decided to fine tune the
content, so much so that we've renamed the eZine VMS3.info. The name represents
the components of the Value Equation (defined as V=MS3) which will be the
primary focus of the eZine. We will be sharing stories, evidence and applications
of its use in creating and maintaining successful businesses. We hope you enjoy
the new content and format.

THE STORY BEHIND
THE VALUE FRAMEWORK: In November, 2001, I was giving a solo presentation at
Comdex Fall on "Business Models for the 21st Century". In pulling together
the presentation, I had an epiphany. All of a sudden, I saw an easy way to evaluate
companies to see if they were spending enough energy in the appropriate areas
to allow them to be successful in the long-run. The equation says that the appropriate
business model(s) need to be strategically deployed and continually managed and
e-volved within companies. Or rather,
= MS3, where 3 represents cubed
V = Value
Created, M = Model, and S = Strategy
(PTP) where P (1) = Process, T = Transactions, and P (2) = Participants
S3 = S cubed, where S (1) = Strategy Deployed, S (2) = Strategy
Managed, and S (3) = Strategy Evolved
will be exploring the intricacies of the Value Equation over the issues
to come. Please share your thoughts and comments.
