In celebration of the launch of the M.S. in Enterprise Engineering and Policy, the Enterprise Engineering and Policy Lab hosts its first event on May 8 and 9–a workshop titled “New Methods of Work and Electronic Commerce: Extended Products in Dynamic Enterprises.”
Eighteen of Europe’s leading e-commerce researchers are participating in this technical research interchange as part of George Mason’s partnership in the European Commission’s Automated Performance Measurement project, a research consortium that will develop an automated system for evaluating and improving performance management in technology-enabled organizations. The School of Public Policy’s Policy Analysis Center is the only U.S. partner in the project. The European researchers are joined at the workshop by U.S. researchers, including some from Northern Virginia technology companies.
The workshop covers topics such as customer relationship management, e-business portals, and self-integration of business-to-business software applications, and researchers will focus on ways to partner on enterprise engineering projects across the Atlantic Ocean, says Tom Gulledge, director of the Policy Analysis Center.
