Accountant's Face Brave New E-Business World

Several participants in our e-business workshop presented interesting questions and raised issues about creating and consulting in the e-business arena.

What questions should you ask if you are considering getting into the world of e-business? IT specialist Greg Price led our workshop discussion in these areas:

  • Why do we need an E-Business?
  • Do I understand what I hope to accomplish by establishing and E-Business?
  • How will I maintain my E-Business?
  • What type of information technology inventory does my company already own?
  • Will my employees be able to use the intranet?
  • Should I limit the scope of my E-Business?
  • Have I defined all of the elements involved in the E-Business project?
