Journal of Management Excellence: The Value of Information
In this issue, our authors have done an outstanding job of exploring many facets of VOI. Robert Shimp discusses the shift in the economy from that of a services economy to an information management economy. Thomas Oestreich unveils part 1 of his series on VOI, which includes a framework to help you understand the sources of value. Frank Buytendijk discusses how to turn company information into a profit center (and, therefore, an asset on the balance sheet), while Dave Collins explains how VOI can be destroyed through the misuse of productivity tools. In his second article, Frank Buytendijk introduces the concept of the information value proposition.
