Kyield Enterprise Description Converted to StratML


I just wanted to point to a nice conversion of our Kyield Enterprise description to Strategy Markup Language (StratML); an XML vocabulary and schema for strategic plans. The work was performed without solicitation over the weekend by Owen Ambur, Chair AIIM StratML & Co-Chair Emeritus xml.gov.

The human readable version (styled) of Kyield Enterprise in StratML can be viewed in browsers on Web here:

Drucker on long term values


“Whether a business should be run for short-term results or with a focus on the long term is likewise a question of values. Financial analysts believe that businesses can be run for both simultaneously.

Successful businesspeople know better. To be sure, every company has to produce short-term results. But in any conflict between short-term results and long-term growth, each company will determine its own priority.

This is not primarily a disagreement about economics. It is fundamentally a value conflict regarding the function of a business and the responsibility of management.” — Peter Drucker, HBR 1/2005
