Seminar:  Internal Market Economics:  Practical Resource-Governance Processes Based on Principles We All Believe In

"Do more with less!" Unrealistic expectations. Unfair accusations that you cost too much. Lack of cost transparency. Controversial chargebacks. Unreliable funding for infrastructure and innovation. Bureaucratic governance processes. All these problems are created by traditional financial processes. 

This presentation explains the root cause of common problems, and how things should work. It provides practical guidelines for the design of highly effective internal resource-governance processes.  Mr. Meyer will discuss how to solve problems with a new breed of highly effective, agile, business-driven processes for: 

  • budgeting 
  • priority setting 
  • demand management (portfolio management)
  • service catalogs
  • rate setting 

This presentation is based on Mr. Meyer's new book, Internal Market Economics, which explains what happens when common-sense principles of market economics are applied inside organizations.  It will provide you with ideas on how to evolve your resource-governance and financial-management processes.  Mr.. Meyer has a library on IT financial management and resource-governance processes that can be found on It covers 20 topics, and includes over 130 case studies, videos, articles, books, stories, webinars, and online courses.

Dean Meyer is one of the original proponents of running shared-services organizations within companies as businesses within a business, where every managerial group is an entrepreneurship funded to produce products and services for customers. 

For over three decades, he has implemented this vision in corporate, government, and non-profit organizations through the careful design of culture, organizational structure, and resource-governance processes. 

Dean is the author of seven books, including Internal Market Economics. He's a former CIO Magazine columnist, where he authored the popular CIO.COM monthly column, Beneath the Buzz, where he cut through the hype and explained hot management buzzwords in common sense terms, with a perspective on what's there and what's not. He has also published countless monographs and articles. 

He invented FullCost, a business and budget planning process based on an internal product/service costing solution. He researched the science of organizational structure, captured in his Structural Cybernetics framework and reorganization process. And he developed an approach to corporate culture that leads to meaningful change in less than a year. 

Dean coaches executives on organizational and political issues, and personally facilitates transformation processes.  Dean received a BS from the University of California at Berkeley, and earned an MBA from Stanford in 1976.
