Numerous white papers are circulating on the Internet highlighting the business case supporting the IoE initiative. For instance, in a white paper conducted by Cisco Inc. on the Value Index of IoE in 2013 reported the following: In February 2013, Cisco released a study predicting that $14.4 trillion of value (net profit) will be at stake globally over the next decade, driven by connecting the unconnected –people-to-people (P2P), machine-to-people (M2P), and machine-to-machine (M2M) - via the Internet of Everything (IoE). Cisco defines the Internet of Everything as the networked connection of people, process, data, and things. The IoE creates new “capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals, and countries” (The Internet of Everything, Cisco, Inc. 2014). With such a lofty goal looming, and the monetary potential, many sources will support the notion of companies scrambling to achieve a computing networking infrastructure......

Cisco Strategic Planning and Strategic Intent

...Cisco Strategic Planning and Strategic Intent Introduction The purpose of this essay is to understand the core concepts behind strategic planning and strategic intent and then to compare and contrast those concepts in regards to the strategies of Cisco Systems Inc. Description of Theories/Core Concepts Strategic Planning Strategic planning is the process of identifying a desired future, then transforming that vision into goals or objectives, and then to establish a set of task lists or sequences to achieve the goals. Strategic planning starts with an end-state then works backwards to the organizations currents state. In general, the strategic planning process begins with identifying the mission and/or vision for the company, then setting up the goals and objectives, followed by analyzing the company’s current state, and then setting up a plan based on the current state to meet the established goals and objectives. Lastly strategic planning calls for the implementation of the plan while getting feedback and establishing controls to keep the organization on track. (Stacey, 2007) Strategic Intent Strategic intent is a different approach although there are some similarities. The main principle behind strategic intent is to establish “an obsession with winning at all levels of the organization and then sustained that obsession over the 10-20 year quest for global leadership.” (Hamel, 1989) Using Strategic Intent to provide the path ahead, organizational leaders...

Cisco Systems, Inc.: Collaborating on New Product Introduction

...CASE: GS-66 DATE: 06/05/09 CISCO SYSTEMS, INC.: COLLABORATING ON NEW PRODUCT INTRODUCTION On November 13, 2007, more than 100 employees of Cisco Systems, Inc. assembled in classic Cisco fashion: they dialed in from multiple locations around the world for an important meeting. The purpose of the gathering was to get the green light from senior management to manufacture a new high-end router that would make the giant networking company more competitive in an age of surging Internet traffic.1 The project’s code name, Viking, said it all. The router for broadband service providers would break ground in power and speed, reminiscent of the Norse warriors and explorers of Europe during the eighth to eleventh centuries. The meeting represented a culmination of several years of development work by a cross-functional, global team of Cisco specialists in engineering, manufacturing, marketing and other areas. Just months earlier, in mid-2007, Cisco overhauled the project by sharply boosting the router’s speed and capacity. This would allow the company to leapfrog competitors and offer a low-cost, powerful new router platform for the next 10 to 15 years. That day in November, the Viking team was seeking an “execution commit” from senior management in manufacturing. If it got the go-ahead, Cisco would be ready to commit the resources to launch the new product. But the Cisco team knew it faced many challenges. The Viking project would be one of the company’s most......

...Neva Wright HRM 587 Week 6 Assignment Professor Deloach Coke Cola (CCE) needs a communication plan that is going to be consistent and structured with the vision of the company(Coke 2007). They also need a strategy to convey this change to the employees. There is a technical issue there because they had no way of linking with the employees through video, audio, and email (Coke 2007). CCE had to outsource the technical portion to Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) so that they could get the technical support they needed to get connected to their employees(Coke 2007). They also came up with a communication council to work on the communication issues within the company. In February 12, 2007 Brock had his first live chat from Atlanta and got a nearly 90 percent employee satisfaction with the new communication. The employees being able to see and listen to the CEO made it personal for the employees and they felt like the CEO cared. Immediate feedback through management survey had a positive response(Coke 2007). There is an eight step process for creating effective Internal Communication Plan (Pophal): * Situation analysis/background this should provide a high level overview of the situation or communication needed to understand the situation(Pophal). * Quantifiable objectives/goals identify objectives/goals that indicate the “end state” needed to achieve your goal(Pophal). * Target audience who are you trying to reach to achieve the goals(Pophal). ...
