DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-8073-8.ch009
This book has reviewed the literature concerning the role of management in business development and several papers on available tools and techniques for research of the business resources and the external factors impacting the organisation, together with tools and techniques used to analyse information systems. A particular note was made of recommendations for seeking out competitive advantage and the omissions and limitations expressed by the authors of the current research and analysis methods. There are arguments for combining specific tools and techniques into a single methodology. This chapter presents the benefits to business managers and development staff for using the methodology and the documentation produced and from having a well-structured business architecture. The advantages of having a holistic view of the organisation and its competitive position concerning the external forces are reviewed in relation to due diligence, transparency and good governance, and risk assessment and planning.
