5 Executive summary IF we have a speedy look on the level of the life in the Egyptian Villages in comparison with the level of the life in the society of the city, we will rapidly realize the great gab between them. The current vision towards the Egyptian village is as poor and low level place, no good services, no infrastructure services,low educational status, no…….

21 Priority Group 2 Dimensions * Technology / internet * Market image * Products / services

22 Improvement Goal Priority Group 2 As we need to move our villages forward, It takes a certain kind of human being and also – no doubt- of technology.

39 Definition: Performance Measures For competitive reasons we need to measure the end – to – end performance of our organization directly. We can see that the performance measures are composed of a number and a unit measure. the number provides that magnitude "how much" and the unit is what gives the number its meaning "what". Here in (Made in Egypt with Egyptian hands " the producing village ") the basic purpose of the measurement is to provide feedback, relative to the goals that increase our chance of improving the performance of the Egyptian village efficiently and effectively. if we can get our performance measurement right, the data we generate will tell us where we are and how we are doing and where we are going.

43 Definition: Education / Development Education, no longer resides within the confines of the traditional centres.Virtual and" real-time" learning have become commonplace and the learner is at the heart of the activity. The ability to create and apply new ideas becomes the secret to competitive advantage. Companies recognize the need to incentive and incubate some of the best ideas into new products and services – even new markets. So, no doubt that when we talk about the development of the Egyptian village we must take in consideration the innovation process that we want to achieve. the village is always known as a poor and non innovation area.we must assure on the education in the village with new methodology that assess the newest thinking and the competitive market

51 Definition: Market Positioning Most companies have an organized system to track competitors. However, market boundaries are beginning to blur, and it's difficult to scope those who might have slated you as a competitor and its not always obvious who might be a supplier, alliance partner or competitor all at the same time. With the acceleration of information technology, globalization, niche markets and sophistication of consumer demand, intelligence must come everywhere in the organization. more systematic methods should be deployed in order to gather insight, add value through analysis and feed the information forward to those in the need – to - know. In " The Producing Village " we must try to assess the organization's ability to gather information from the external environment, and then use this information internally to support the innovation process.

52 Activities: Market Positioning Urgent (address immediately) –promote the role of the "Information Technology Manager". –develop techniques to prioritize new business opportunities.

54 The small project suggestion Techniques and Business opportunity.

55 Definition: Products / Services It is there that we in fact move into new fields and hence also find new competitors with completely different value propositions than we might be used to. We need to be careful of focusing o­n our "present" competitors and learn to shift towards who might the new competitors in a collaborative manner in support of customer success. The shift to knowledge-intensive service, as knowledge is a must. the knowledge that goes into the creation and marketing of a product is more valuable than the product itself. The challenge is how to package and sell that knowledge. This dimension includes the most important on-going products, services and polices in the governorate in order to improve life quality, through it can give a critical and analytical vision about the recent human development services and activities in the governorate and not just reviewing the achievements. It also includes the future vision of human development in the Egyptian village.

56 Activities: Products / Services Urgent (address immediately) –Promote the role of the Investment Capital fund to achieve the new ideas to stay ahead of the competition, in order to introduce new aids and services each year to stay ahead of the competition –.Develop Methods and techniques within the organization to standardize customized services, so that the revenues (financial or morale) can be optimized Important (address within 3 months) –follow product design principles and processes to emphasize the development of knowledge-intensive services ahead of the competition.

59 Definition: Market Penetration it is clear that we in fact move into new fields and hence also find new competitors with completely different value propositions than we might be used to. We need to be careful of focusing o­n our "present" competitors and learn to shift towards who might the new competitors in a collaborative manner in support of customer success. The dawn of the new age of innovation is one of collaborative, not competitive,strategy that realize the need of alliances and the ability to manage those relationship effectively.

67 Definition: Leadership / Leverage As we need to move our organization and villages forward, It takes a certain kind of human being to foresee the unimaginable and have the business acumen to change vision into reality. It is not enough to have good ideas, they must be translated into prosperity. Leadership is required inside the organization / villages in order to capitalize upon the multiple opportunities ahead. The Knowledge Economy demands a very different way of operating from previous economies. Leadership is necessary to coalesce all the internal and external constituents to support the innovation process.
