Rollout of Business Partner Networks from Selection to Implementation

Douglas K PETERSON

Abstract


This paper covers a methodology for rolling out large initiatives in non-linear ways. Based on cooperation network formation theory, a cooperation network can be constructed from the multi-distance perspective under variables that better align business with the SDGs of the UN, the Paris Accord and the agendas of international organizations. It is apparent that business organizations play a central role in the addressing of the SDGs, however all that glitters isn’t gold. There is poor transparency and rampant corruption in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Russia. With this in mind, a structure can be built that anyone can master with the use of an app. It would take a very large initiative to bring a structure to bear that transcended ad hoc assessment for superficiality and judgement. It would be highly possible to build assessment and transparency structures that allow a within and between company, cultural, and unilateral or multilateral view as well as a larger and more granular examination of industry, company reputation, strategy, finances, supply chain, delivery, and interactions with government and society. This paper proposes a simple mechanism using factor analysis and regression that can be built into the structure of app functionality. To use this, it is important to gather qualitative data, but more so to select quantitative data from which greatest opportunities can be derived and compared with qualitative data on culture and capacious capital structures. Data can be demographic, corporate operations, cultural typology, human development, transparency, industrial or economic weakness.
