What is our design philosophy?

The Design Philosophy of this site is to facilitate a Global Knowledge Community of global BizTech professionals interacting amongst themselves and an evolving Knowledge Map. The focus is less on ‘cut-and-dried’ issues covered in most academic disciplines and more on developing post-modernistic thinking of contemporary business, management and technology issues. It is anticipated that the interdisciplinary focus on ‘real world’ issues may facilitate sense-making of some of the most critical issues being faced by today’s organizations and their managers. Each of these issues has its own share of complexity, and the same holds for the overlaps and the relationships between them. The evolving understanding of these issues, as reified within the medium of these web pages, is expected to provide some focus and structure to such convoluted concepts, while avoiding oversimplification or one specific interpretation. Much of the practitioner focus as well as the focus of business schools on ‘Business Technology Management’ evident today follows the cross-disciplinary issues we defined and discussed in the last decade. We anticipate continuing this tradition of discovering latest areas of high-value added knowledge and practice and contribute to the evolution of management practices and business disciplines.
