e-Business Impact on Business Processes

In this course, we examine the potential impact of e-business models and practices on business processes. The introduction of even the simplest e-business activity into an organisation can result in the requirement to revisit a wide range of organisational processes to determine both the positive and negative impact.

Lesson 1: EFFECT OF E-BUSINESS ON PROCESSES

We first introduce a variety of approaches to help in identifying and modelling existing processes within a business drawing upon standard methodologies, such as Porter. We then look at the generic effects that e-business can have on these processes. Some processes take on different forms as this new business medium streamlines processes or adds additional complexity. To demonstrate this in more detail, we investigate three different business processes (Human Resource Management, Product Development and Project Management) to see how e-business concepts can alter them.

Lesson 2: LOGISTICS AND JIT DELIVERY ISSUES

In Lesson 2, we explore in detail the impact of e-business concepts on the business processes surrounding logistics and fulfilment. While these may appear to be very traditional business processes, they are fundamental to the success of most on-line companies. We describe the impact on these processes and present case studies of organisations that have successfully re-engineered these processes.

Lesson 3: E-BUSINESS AND PROCUREMENT

Here we explore the process of procurement, a fundamental process in any business, and how e-business models can offer new opportunities to streamline and add greater flexibility. We look at a number of case studies to demonstrate these concepts. We conclude with a brief overview of current technology solutions.

There is no experience or previous qualifications required for enrolment on this course. It is available to all students, of all academic backgrounds.
