The most important concepts frequently come out of the most apparent and simplistic ideas. Usually, these are only apparent to us after they are described or the picture is painted for us. The IEM conceptual framework provides each of us a road map for improved effectiveness in today's complex organizations. The six perspectives challenge us to consider cross-functional issues at a higher level of thinking than the separate functional issues. This is the glue that makes a group of functions into one enterprise performing with a focus, mission, strategy and vision suitable for winning in the markets we serve.
The underlying factor in the six perspectives is knowledge. How
might we as members of an organization apply all the knowledge that
can be brought to bear on an issue? The IEM concept is one way of
leading people in their organizational lives to see issues from
multiple perspectives and therefore be able to integrate the
resources of the enterprise. The alternative of trying to define
each interaction between functions would create more confusion than
benefit and would not promote integration but disaggregation,
exactly the opposite of our purpose.
