Organizational Learning Strategies of Start-up Firms; Creating the Office Of Strategic Thinking (OST)
AbstractIn this short paper, we discuss some efficient strategic content management practices that would help enhance a firm’s business horizons to deliver better quality product to their end customers. Since business firms who operate data mining and knowledge-based services related to market research needs to evolve sound information management practices through efficient data re-engineering, research and analysis (R&A) techniques. Companies in the business of market research needs to develop certain skills to win on empowered consumers and hence to stay ahead in debate in this age of hyper-competition. These companies in either way continuously innovate and standardize their content development strategic activities through process improvement from knowledge gain and expertise as well from knowledge manipulation in order to move up the value-chain. To this end, we propose some innovative, yet flexible strategies that shed some fresh light on the thought development process by proposing the establishment of a new Office of Strategic Thinking (OST) under an existing R&D set up for setting standards which are of highest and best in quality, while retaining the ability to innovate contemporaneously. Our study concentrates mainly on market research firms and new entrants who put in great effort to keep abreast of skills and process development methodologies in this ever-changing business environment.
