Master the Enterprise Services Planning Framework
Enterprise Services Planning (ESP) is a framework of tools that leaders of 21st Century knowledge-work enterprises can apply to their strategic and capacity planning. ESP is often described as the equivalent of MRP for a professional services business. Such businesses employ many educated professionals, who think for a living, perform largely invisible work, and deliver mostly intangible products and services to customers. Such businesses are increasingly exposed to VUCA – the conditions of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. It is often futile, under such conditions, to plan specific results, deliverables, and milestones. The VUCA reality quickly tosses such plans out of the window.
Does this sound like your enterprise? ESP can help! Join David J Anderson and Alexei Zheglov for the Enterprise Services Planning Course.
