Creating the Collaborative Enterprise
David J. Skyrme
Chapter 9 Update
Developments in electronic commerce are high on most policy makers' agendas. I recently attended a talk on the A to Z of the legal aspects of electronic commerce. It confirmed what was stated on page 251 - that international Internet law is a mess! There was an issue (often with lack of international harnonization) for virtually every letter of the alphabet! Dialogue continues between EU and the US but technology moves faster than regulators! Therefore little of substance has changed.
If you want to keep abreast of latest developments the US government has an ecommerce web site, that has the US Framework for Global Electronic Commerce, US ecommerce policy documents and links to international sites.
The following are updates on the competitiveness and innovation indices and specific policy initiatives featured in chapter 9.
Do you know of a collaborative community, regional, government or international initiative that involves all sectors and has significantly helped innovation and knowledge networking to create prosperity? Are your policy makers effective at the roles outlined on page 264 and work collaboratively with industry and academia? Share with your views and experience with other readers.
