Managing Change was a joint founder of this Alumni SIG, originally called the E-Commerce Focus Group. From an initial 3 persons we have grown to membership of over 200.
The main purpose of the Group is to provide an opportunity for eBusiness learning and networking. Where possible, we place meeting overheads on our web site. Between meetings our members can tap into the web site for professional networking and supply of services. Our chair is Johann Diaz, who has developed his own dot.com company.
The main group meets at the Henley Management College, just north of Henley-on-Thames in Oxon and on the banks of the River Thames. The group tends to focus on business issues, such as eBusiness distribution strategy, legal issues, customer e-service.
Attendance dropped after the dot.com crash but is now increasing again and numbers are now typically 30 persons. Speakers are always excellent and subjects topical. And of course the ambience at the College it great. We have an open membership policy so visit our web site and come to one of our meetings.
We have forged links with the BSC eBusiness and Technology SIG, Strategic Planning Society, Institute of Management Consultancy (eBusiness Group), and the Chartered Institute of Marketing Technology Group (CIMTech), often through promoting joint events.
Managing Change continues to support the group with Alan Cooper remaining its secretary. There are exciting time ahead. With 6 successful years behind us, we are now formulating a strategy for the group to ensure we meet the needs of our members and to keep the momentum going. We have scheduled 5 regular meetings each year until the end of 2005 and we are aiming to have top speakers from leading companies. We are planning a day event in November together with Alumnus from Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands. The Group is also developing ways of working jointly with the College.
