    The notion of using an 80-20 rule to drive decision making has been around for decades. Yet the details of how to turn this general principle into something operational have remained elusive. In reality, no-one has created concrete rules for how to realize an 80-20 rule as a business strategy. In this paper we show how to use empirical project data to create provably optimal strategic risk reducti... View full abstract»

In this paper we propose a method to assess how effective is the information exchange among firm modular units. We propose to model a modular firm as a set of units that interact through well-defined channels: structural information together with typ... View full abstract»

    Various different valid software design solutions may respond satisfactorily to the same product requirements. In addition, a great part of the success of a software project depends on the software design selected. However, there are very few methods that quantify how much value will be added by each particular design strategy, and hence very little time is spent in choosing the best design option...

    The availability of IT systems is a major concern to many organizations. Considering security investments, the justification of the costs of the insurance policy for the protection of availability is notoriously difficult. As security is about the state of being or feeling secure, this will give rise both to objective and subjective arguments. Denying either the objective or the subjective type of...
