eTOM and Human Capital in Third Generation KM

leave a comment »

Human capital improvement processes is one strategic issue among other learning and growth perspectives such of information capital and organization capital. A lot of HR Management’s process has been implemented to increase organizational capacity to grab market and maintain business continuity. However it is still difficult to convert this initiative into real organizational business value such revenue and profit. There are additional dimension to make strong relationship between business strategy and knowledge strategy dealing with social capital to view in another side to manage social network relationship role in organization, value chain and competitive advantages.

eTOM has Human Resource Management and Knowledge Management processes in enterprise management process group that can be align with third generation KM based on social network value perspective to support other group processes such strategic and operation. This balance management can increase productivity and growth with value relationship of each stream competencies and skill that usually connected each other to provide problem solution, team work and learning to win the business. Dynamic competitive business environment need agile and high flexibility in value network between internal (employee and organizational system) and external (customer) dealing with strategy focus both business and corporate strategy. This complex learning and growth perspective alignment should support suitable internal process to deliver valuable service to the customer with triple crown vision and goals. Talent management can not solve all human capital issues dealing with business issues and should be integrated with social network role such of central, broker, boundary spanner and peripheral in proper business process configuration in each level for continuous learning analysis and speed decision. The dream winning team can not be viewed just in cultural dimension without real social network power behind the formal organizational structure and chart. These new essential dimensions dealing with network connectivity, knowledge and subject matter expert awareness, accessibility and energizing will create valuable breakthrough over leadership, communications, motivation and strategy focus issues.

Using Minto Pyramid Principle as effective shared context in daily strategy focus objective

with one comment

In knowledge era enterprise needs an effective approach to create more knowledge caused of dynamic external business needs, wants and expectation. Knowledge strategy as value relationship between employee, system and customer should be evaluated periodically to keep enterprise’s capacity to deliver product and service dealing with cost, competitive value advantage and time as triple crown objectives. To grab the market, exploit it and win the business speed of knowledge (who know how) creation is one of early initiative to solve the problem, improve and remove internal process effectively based on customer expectation and strategy focus organization. However this organization’s level of strategy can not be copied from best practice implementation from benchmark competitor as differentiation that difficult to imitated to lower level as team learning and personal mastery of individual level. Dynamic situation produce a lot of silo information and challenges as barrier to create shared context (ba) as essential place for knowledge creation such of externalization (metaphor and analogy) and combination for internalized innovation and continuous improvement. Competitive advantage should be built from individual, group, organization and external entities ontologically. How can we use simple way and daily practice to overcome this complex relationship problem? Is there any practical wisdom to create effective solution for here now need rather than then there normative management approach to align with organizational strategy objectives?

minto pyramid

We do from what we think and we get from what we do. The first step toward this solution’s journey is using same structured approach logic of thinking, writing, problem solving and presenting as effective shared context and communication as knowledge socialization in individual level based on organizational problem issue. This personal mastery based on knowledgeable enterprise mission will build wining and learning team that can externalize their expertise to create new knowledge to fulfill organizational nutrition to survive, growth and sustain.

One of practical methodology known as “Minto Pyramid Principle” that use simple classic pattern of story-telling-Situation-Complication-Question and Answer (SCQA) that using pyramid as natural sorting information in human brain memorizing work. The mind cannot hold more than about seven items in the short term memory at any on time, so it start to group them into logical categories to be retained. The mind naturally sorts information into pyramidal groupings to comprehend it. Ideas that arrive pre-sorted into pyramids are more easily understood. A pyramid structure should therefore be the natural form for communicating. In telecom enterprise’s context, this structural logic can be aligned with structural pyramid process dealing with eTOM as organizational network analysis. Vertical and horizontal relationship can be used as effective shared context that enriched with effective logical of thinking and problem solving. This value relationship will force enterprise to create more solution and improving internal process and capacities to response dynamic market to win the business.

eTOM and Web 2.0 as Value Relationship Management

leave a comment »

We work in agile organization that response Third Generation Knowledge Management (TGKM) dealing with value relationship management in social networking era that move towards Forth Generation KM (FGKM) that more aesthetic, relationship, subjective practical wisdom knowledge creation here now rather than there. It is not only focus on financial profit but keeping in balance more social profit as an peace and harmony networks. There is another domain that react as compensation of this rapid change of social capital value from Web 1.0 towards Web 2.0 even Web 3.0. From Information resource, high role of collaboration and affect decision towards more generate new information based on semantik web and personalization. Scientific Management that focus to control all process for valuable service to customer will move forward to Customer Expectation Management. Find the best trade off between inside out and outside in approach to win the successful outcomes. Web 2.0 represent the power of hidden social network that should be align with enterprise strategy dealing with how service can be deliver based on triple crown principle: quality of services, cost and delivery time.



One of important issue in Knowledge Enterprise is service standardization to make integration easier based on valuable partnership interdependently and using the same shared context to create knowledge and enrich service differentiation to win the business. eTOM as global generic process shared context take a benefit role for improving process out come especially in first level of organizational value. Most of standardization is product of not profit organization based on community of practice that tend to decide critical issue with best consensus as market driven as Web 2.0 evidence. This value driven force to network provider more flexible to manage internal resources and fit service delivery requirements with global service standardization as value relationship that change in dynamic customer need, wants and expectation. Service standardization itself force to more flexible, manageable and customize package that shift their role from inside out domain toward outside in valuable shared context should be achieve in continuous improvement effectively. eTOM has a wide range of process library vertically and horizontally that used as best process shared context with knowledge creation dealing with value relationship among information, materials, human resource, ITs and outcome control feedback both positive double loop learning or negative feedback single loop learning. eTOM will be shifted towards Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 environment that tend not to thinks complexity with control all internal value network in fact not usually match with customer need and expectation. With Web 2.0 standardization firm can focus to improve or remove internal process and achieve global service standardization as value shared context among providers and customers.

MEF 2.0etom ba

One of global standardization of telecom service is ethernet called Carrier Ethernet standardized by Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) supported by Iometrix as global non profit ethernet community based on Web 2.0 movement social network business era. There are new layer of foundation in MEF/CE 2.0 that match with market driven community: Class of Services, Managed and Interconnected. All of requirements of this valuable shared context should be tested successfully by all providers to prove their have capability enough and assure Standardized Quality Of Service in value relationship global network with flexibility creating internal differentiation to win the business and grab the market. MEF move towards from rigid network element standardization and configuration to global interconnect program that more focus to service domain where all nodes of value network relationship share their know how to provide better service and customer outcomes in clear shared context as innovation process, product and services.

MEF Global Interconnect Defined: “The interconnection of autonomous Carrier Ethernet networks to enable standardized and streamlined delivery of MEF-certified Carrier Ethernet services with end-to-end Class of Service, management and protection. Since 2001 when the MEF was formed, Carrier Ethernet services and networks have grown from almost zero to a US$22 billion in 2008 to US$34 billion in 2013 having a $142 billion 5-year total 2009—2013. Acheiving significant milestones along the way, the MEF’s strategy between 2008 and 2010 incorporates all elements for global Ethernet Interconnect including service levels, ENNI, management and processes such as provisioning, into place to enable Ethernet services throughout the world.

Social Network Analysis as a weapon to drive eTOM Process get highest outcomes

leave a comment »

In this social network era there is Social Network Analysis (SNA) or Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) as a weapon to drive processes more effective to achieve Successful Customer Outcome (SCO) dealing with capability to map relationship all node in a lot of different needed context. To provide this valuable issue in Third and forth Generation Knowledge Management we already create page “Social Network Role” based on web mind map and links use free-ap2s. Hope this page useful for us.

Outside in process approach and eTOM in Customer Centric Enterprise

leave a comment »

There are two process approachs, inside out and outside in. We need both of them. However in general people tend to think and act based on inside out approach. Think and Create best solution and deliver it to their customer in one way without assurance it will be match with customer satisfaction and need. In fact we don’t know what exactly customer need and wants based on complex and dynamic relationship with all aspect that affect customer especially in this social network and third generation knowledge management.

Customer Centricetom


Two things have changed. First, Outside-In today extends far beyond identifying opportunities. While full scale OI starts by aligning strategy with customers,it continues by next aligning process with strategies and then technology with process. In that order. More specifically, following opportunity identification OI determines “what” work has to be done by “who” in order to turn opportunity into reality. This strategic step defines organizational change as well as changes to workflow and information flow. Then OI defines “how” the work should be done and the technology enablement required, the tactical side. Not only does Outside-In expand the scope of customer-centric thinking to include implementation; but it also stretches traditional boundaries of process to include the “what” and the “who” plus technology support–beyond just addressing the “how.” And that’s why we call it “Outside-In Process.”

The second change is the volume of Outside-In occurring. A number of organizations have already completed the migration from “inside-out” (company-centric) to Outside-In (customer-centric). Others are opportunistically starting to migrate. And some laggards within their own industries have moved or are moving defensively, to avoid the fate of Circuit City, CompUSA, WAMU (Washington Mutual Bank), General Motors and Northwest Airlines–all notoriously inside-out companies insensitive to customer needs (Dick Lee )





eTOM has complete end to end process with 5th decomposed process outcome’s level that can be used as process map to identify process scope that should be improved based on Customer Need and Succesfull Customer Outcomes (SCO). One of practice methode is CEM Methode (Customer Experience Management Methode) developped by BP Group that means of improving existing business processes or designing new business processes to align with customer needs. It works by focusing each process on a specific customer outcome to be achieved, and by designing the process from the outside of the organization to the inside of the organization, hence the term commonly used “outside-in”. By the systematic analysis of three key components inherent to every process, organizations can achieve greater customer alignment. CEM Method combines three key components are Moments of Truth (Customer interactions), Breakpoints (hand-offs) and Business Rules (decision points). We aim to eliminate or improve these three components to bring them into alignment with the process’s successful customer outcome.

CEMetom

Proper combination between eTOM and CEM Method will create new outside in approach in telecom industry that force enterprise to be Customer Centric Enterprise faster than inside out approach effectively. We now should put eTOM Process Framework as a map scope that can be used to improve truly based on SCO, not as an inside out complex subjective design and implementation. There are two fundamental option to achieve customer outcomes to be customer centric organization. Remove not useful process or improve them with suitable step dealing with dynamic complex customer need, wants and expectation.

eTOM and Shadow System

leave a comment »

Knowledge Management is such of nutrition for the enterprise to survive, grow and sustain. It is not only best track to make firm bigger from Small Medium Enterprise (SME) to be large enterprise however we need such of shadow system to ensure firm can life in a long time with providing valuable product and service. eTOM provide on end to end process in Enterprise Management Group Process called Knowledge and Research Management. This process provide shadow system as knowledge based layer behind legitimate system processes that clearly shown and decomposed from organization level, group level and individual level. We can focus to measure KPI of end to end process and perform negative feedback loop and single loop learning as business system layer activity based on formal rule and encourage shadow system with subject Matter Expert (SMEs) involved to perform positive feedback loop to increase “energy” and double loop learning with knowledge creation based on chaos creativity. This two different cycle should promoted and managed with flexibility leader in proper field align with corporate vision, culture and technology that tag tacit and explicit knowledge.

Corporate Learning Center is one valuable initiative about employing learning as critical weapon in the fight of organization’s success. It is about strategies, tactics and people. It is about special individual who makes things happen and the tools and techniques they employ, handling a proactive organizational performance-focus role to deliver benefit of learning (David Mackey,Siân Livsey, 2006)
