Welcome to the Business Ecology Initiative

Business Ecology is a management imperative to make business more responsive, effective, sustainable and secure in a complex, networked world. It views organizations as living organisms in which all aspects of management, operations and process interact and interrelate, and which operate within a dynamic business ecosystem.  Organizations that pursue Business Ecology optimize business operations and foster innovation through business-technology convergence, better decision making, business process excellence, removal of waste from business practices and technology portfolios, holistic risk management, and real-time insight.

The Business Ecology® Initiative (BEI)
is a non-profit, member-led organization committed to breaking down silos and promoting effective, adaptive, sustainable and secure practices both within organizations and among them. BEI provides thought leadership, education and advocacy for Business Ecology practices and a platform for the development and sharing of case studies and practices among business and technology leaders. 

BEI Practice Area Communities

Critical to Business Ecology success is the exchange of real-world stories, practices, lessons and insights amongst the adopter community. BEI's Communities of Practice (listed below) are advocacy groups comprised of practitioners, service providers and technology vendors. Their goal is to promote the business value and enable the successful adoption of key business-technology strategies by the Global 1000, major government agencies and midmarket businesses. » See all our communities
