Re[3]: Size of Market for P2 Services?



In addition to the good points Scott mentioned, I find some of the best P2
implementations come from applying a technology from one industrial sector
to a related process in another sector.  The complexity of any operation
today often forces the "experts" to have tunnel vision in their field.

There are two modes of P2, the Best Practices mode which looks at how the
best in a sector operates and the Technology Transfer mode which works as
described above.  (As always the real world comes in shades of gray!).

The Best Practice mode is by far the easier sell to companies especially
given personal experience in the field.  The Technology Transfer mode is
very hard to sell, it tends to be more like a lottery (how much would you
spend on a one in a thousand chance to win $10,000?).

My two cents worth.
