About Us :  About the Authors:  W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne are Professors of Strategy at INSEAD and authors of The New York Times Bestseller Blue Ocean Shift and the 3.6 million global bestseller Blue Ocean Strategy
W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne are Professors of Strategy at INSEAD, one of the world's top business schools, and co-directors of the INSEAD Blue Ocean Strategy Institute in Fontainebleau, France. For ten straight years, Kim and Mauborgne have been ranked in the top five management gurus in the world by Thinkers50. They are the authors of the over 4 million copy international bestseller Blue Ocean Strategy which is recognized as one of the most iconic and impactful strategy books ever written, and a New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Los Angeles Times Bestseller Blue Ocean Shift: Beyond Competing – Proven Steps to Inspire Confidence and Seize New Growth.

A Roadmap To Help Organizations Face New Challenges With Confidence:  With a speed and enthusiasm we did not expect, individuals, governments, companies, and nonprofits around the globe started to look at their world through the lens of red and blue oceans. The terms 'red oceans', 'blue oceans', and 'blue ocean strategy' soon entered the business vernacular. And the discussion moved from "What is blue ocean strategy?", to "How do we actually apply its theory and tools to shift from red to blue oceans?".  To meet this new challenge, we studied the organizations that had applied our theory and methodology to create and capture blue oceans. We analyzed their successes and failures and drew lessons to understand not only the common factors leading to a successful blue ocean shift but also the pitfalls and hurdles that got in the way. After more than a decade of new analysis, we published our second book, the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, Blue Ocean Shift. Blue Ocean Shift provides a roadmap any organization can apply to move from red to blue oceans in a way that their people own and drive the process to succeed.

Since our inception, we've gone on to become a one-stop-shop for businesses looking to optimize their IT budgeting, forecasting, and financial analyses. After going public in 2016, Apptio was acquired by Vista Equity Partners in January 2019.

About Us : Company :  We don't just make Agile software —it's how we built our company.  Since November 2004, Targetprocess has enabled businesses to sustain a start-up culture while scaling their Agile teams. We built our company on steady, organic growth, generated almost entirely from customer referrals. We figured that if we needed or wanted to grow quickly, we'd invest in our technology. We didn't want to interrupt the process of building our entirely original, award-winning visual management tool.  Betting on our product worked. Targetprocess started as a five-person company (honestly, a group of guys who wanted to tinker with the idea of Agile on their free nights and weekends).  We've since grown to a team of over 120 international employees. You can find Targetprocess employees everywhere, from Belarus to Berlin to Buffalo.  Our ability to scale with a distributed team draws on the culture derived from Agile principles.  We make Agile project management software that you can use without a thick operations manual.

About:  About ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library):  ITIL® describes best practices for the effective and efficient provision of IT services. ITIL® (the "IT Infrastructure Library") was first developed at the end of the 1980's by the Central Computing and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA), a government agency in Great Britain.  The reason for commissioning the CCTA was a lack of quality in the IT services procured by the British Government, and a method had to be found to achieve better quality at lower cost. So the CCTA set out to develop recommendations for the effective and efficient provision of IT services. This resulted in a catalogue of best practices for IT organizations, which today is known as "ITIL", the most widely accepted approach to IT service management.
ITIL has grown into a huge framework, so at some point back in 2007 we concluded that an ITIL Wiki is the best way of making this content widely accessible. The ITIL Wiki [1] includes detailed descriptions of the ITIL processes and sub-processes, complete with their inputs and outputs, ITIL roles and metrics (ITIL KPIs), plus a set of free ITIL templates and checklists from our ITIL® Process Map.
A fresh approach to ITIL®: The ITIL Process Map is a 'translation' of ITIL® into legible, easy to read process maps in Microsoft Visio®, ARIS™ and other process management platforms. It explains how ITIL really works and does away with the need to sift through the books with thousands of pages.
The ITIL Process Map covers the complete ITIL V3 Service Lifecycle: Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition, Service Operation, and Continual Service Improvement.

        Roles of site:   (c4) Professional organizations,  (a2) Public Web sites for information sending, 

Introduction: The public health field is a dynamic environment with new health issues emerging every day. In recent years, quality improvement (QI) has been introduced to, and embraced by, the field of public health as a means to achieve efficiencies and improve quality of services during a time of tough economic and political pressures. Although QI has a notable presence in public health practice, isolated QI processes are not sufficient to balance budget cuts with competing public health priorities. Local health departments (LHDs) need a more comprehensive approach to transform organizational culture, wherein the concepts of QI are ingrained in the shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices of all individuals in the LHD. Beyond discrete process improvements, achieving and sustaining an integrated agency-wide culture of QI is necessary to achieve efficiencies, demonstrate return on investment, and ultimately impact health outcomes.
When initiating QI activity in LHDs, a natural evolution of change tends to occur, reflecting impact on both the people and processes within the organization. To gain a solid understanding of the barriers, drivers, and nuances along the journey to a QI culture, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) convened LHD staff responsible for leading QI efforts in their agencies across the country, as well as QI consultants who have worked with LHDs. These experts discussed the various points along a spectrum regarding the uptake of QI in LHDs and strategies to move toward a culture of QI. As a result of this meeting in April 2011, the foundation for this Roadmap to a Culture of Quality (the Roadmap) was built, based on real experiences of practitioners in the field.

About:  The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) is a funding organisation for the creation of research networks, called COST Actions. These networks offer an open space for collaboration among scientists across Europe (and beyond) and thereby give impetus to research advancements and innovation.
COST is bottom up, this means that researchers can create a network – based on their own research interests and ideas – by submitting a proposal to the COST Open Call. The proposal can be in any science field. COST Actions are highly interdisciplinary and open. It is possible to join ongoing Actions, which therefore keep expanding over the funding period of four years. They are multi-stakeholder, often involving the private sector, policymakers as well as civil society.
Since 1971, COST receives EU funding under the various research and innovation framework programmes, such as Horizon 2020.
COST funding intends to complement national research funds, as they are exclusively dedicated to cover collaboration activities, such as workshops, conferences, working group meetings, training schools, short-term scientific missions, and dissemination and communication activities. For more information, please go to the Funding section of this website.
The COST Association places emphasis on actively involving researchers from less research-intensive COST Countries (Inclusiveness Target Countries, ITC). Researchers from Near Neighbour Countries and International Partner Countries can also take part in COST Actions, based on mutual benefit. For more information, please visit the global networking page.

About: Mission:  ENTSOG's mission is to facilitate and enhance cooperation between national gas transmission system operators (TSOs) across Europe in order to ensure the development of a pan-European transmission system in line with European Union energy goals. It was established to promote the completion of the internal market for gas and stimulate cross-border trade, to ensure the efficient management and coordinated operation of the European gas network and to facilitate the network's sound technical evolution.
The future role of gas in a low carbon economy needs to be reflected in the gas market design. The gas market design should enable a higher integration between gas and electricity markets, promote cooperation with other sectors such as transport and support innovation such as renewable gases and power-to-gas technology. This increased level of interaction will need to be assessed to ensure that the future gas market is able to respond to the requirements of the energy sector as a whole. The interaction of these sectors is necessary to meet its climate change targets.
