the future and characteristics of your Biz-Acromania Biz-Acromania has been created in 1997 to ease the reading of papers dedicated to ERP (Enterprises Resources Planning) and “tools” they were commonly utilizing. Biz-Acromania differs from many other acronyms lists or dictionaries because of the here below specified reasons and advantages …. 1. Biz-Acromania does not list all what is existing … 2. 24 main domains have been retained and colored differently as showed at the beginning: education, HR, KM, learning, serious gaming , etc. 3. Thanks to the PDF features, you may search for specific acronyms or words via the EDIT menu and SEARCH function 4. A large majority of the “translated” acronyms are referencing other ones for enlarging the related matter beyond what the reader is usually catching on the spot. That added characteristic represents a real warning: the new and dangerous competitors are not yet known as they will emerge from the digital convergences. That information grounds the Jan Rotmans saying “3 enterprises out of 5 won’t survive the digital surge” ! 5. That feature represent also an interesting contribution to the semantic problematic: responsible persons want more meaningful information to take precise decisions. 6. Since 2006 and thanks to the Internet power, 2 to 3000 lists are monthly downloaded by students, high schools, universities, administrations, enterprises. And we’ll develop that audience with your support, participations, advertising and white papers (see further) 7. The list you are now reading is for free. It will stay like this on our site for one year. Update will follow for another year. 1- As from the next issue, Biz-Acromania will be actualized twice a month only for the subscribers and made downloadable separately; 2- Subscribers will benefit from added articles and white pages. More from time to time and depending on the partners initiatives and propositions. 3- Each semester, the above mentioned contents will be collected and send separately 8. Subscribers will also receive the monthly edition of the Change Management “41” for about 18 months. 9. The membership will be worth discounts in Belgium only (assistance programs: Get ready for 2020, The Quest for the Winning Time, Check-up 2020, Later will it be made valid in some other countries (discussions are under progress with partners).
