Games are playing a crucial role in many successful businesses—not just in PR and marketing, but as a model for designing business systems and workflows. In this book, Michael Hugos provides compelling case studies that demonstrate how game mechanics enable companies to respond quickly to challenges in today’s real-time economy.

This book constitutes the post conference proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Enterprise and Organizational Modeling and Simulation, EOMAS 2011, held in conjunction with CAiSE 2011 in London, UK, in June 2011. Enterprises are purposefully designed systems used to fulfill certain functions. An extended enterprise and organizational study involves both analysis and design activities, in which modeling and simulation play prominent roles. The related techniques and methods are effective, efficient, economic, and widely used in enterprise engineering, organizational study, and business process management. The 14 contributions in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 29 submissions, and they explore these topics, address the underlying challenges, find and improve on solutions, and demonstrate the application of modeling and simulation in the domains of enterprises, their organizations and underlying business processes.

How companies can gain strategic advantage by developing blockchain capabilities. Blockchain is far more than cryptocurrency. Regarded for a decade as complex and with limited application, blockchain has now matured to be on the verge of fully realizing its disruptive potential. In Enterprise Strategy for Blockchain, business strategy expert Ravi Sarathy shows how companies can gain competitive advantage by developing and deploying blockchain capabilities. Sarathy explains what makes blockchain unique, including its capacities to eliminate intermediaries, guard against hackers, decentralize, and protect privacy. Presenting examples drawn from such sectors as finance, supply chains, computer services, consumer products, and entertainment, he describes how executives can strategically assess blockchain’s applicability to their business. After outlining blockchain’s technological features—and its technological obstacles—Sarathy describes disruptive technologies already happening in the financial services market with the emergence of decentralized finance, or DeFi, arguing that a wave of innovation might be positioning DeFi as blockchain’s “killer app.” He also explores, among many other uses, a blockchain application that addresses chronic supply chain problems, pilot blockchain programs aimed at facilitating cross-border payments, and the use of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that allow digital art to be collected and traded. And he outlines a path for organizations that includes establishing a business case for applying blockchain, evaluating enterprise cost-benefits, and preparing the organization to develop the requisite knowledge and people skills while overcoming resistance to change. Business leaders should invest, explore and experiment with blockchain now, positioning their organizations to be first in their fields, ahead of both rising startups and late-to-the game incumbent peers.
