The Value Chain Shift', 2014
Recently our co-authored booklet on 'The Value Chain Shift' was published. This booklet contains the results of a two year research project conducted by IMD, Lausanne. Topics studied were:
  • Measuring corporations' cost and contribution to society
  • Managing resource scarcities
  • Scale and speed: traditional versus emerging market firms
  • Optimizing IT-enabled processes and systems in the value chain: differentiation versus harmonization
  • The organizational design shift
  • How speed affects risks, opportunities and new business models in value chains
  • CSR: moving from compliance to value creation in supply chain relationships
For this 2-year research project I acted as co-research director. Interested in a copy of this booklet? Send me an e-mail!
New 'International Contracting'
This book, about international contracting and contract management, is written from the angle of the contractor and discussed from an international perspective. It comments on real-life cases, taken from various kinds of projects: infrastructural works (roads, bridges, tunnels, rail roads), wind- and sunfarms, oil and gas installations, such as platforms, pipe lines, power generating works, and large buildings.  The book is structured around the contracting cycle.
Chapters include dealing with the role of the contractor in international contracting, the tender process, landing and negotiating the contract, types of contract, problems that may occur during project execution, project delivery, and handling guarantee claims. Written primarily for business practitioners operating in the international contracting industry, the title assumes that the reader will have a basic understanding and knowledge of theories related to project management, construction engineering, business law and economics.  Though not an academic book, due to its unique blend of practitioners' insight and academic theory, it can be taught in courses at institutes at the master level. As most engineers are going to deal with contracts, this book is specifically recommended for engineering programs both at the graduate and postgraduate level. Lawyers will find the book useful to understand the business context in which their customers and/or colleagues work.
