What is the TDC Matrix? Description

The Time Distance Complexity Matrix (TDC Matrix) of Ben Tiggelaar is a framework that can help to assess the value of Information Technology in general and in particular the value of Internet.

Usage of the TDC Matrix. Applications

The TDC Matrix can help to find an answer on the following questions:

  • What is the influence (value) of controlling Time, Distance and Complexity on knowledge, creativity and relations?
  • What is the influence (value) of controlling Time, Distance and Complexity within the four perspectives of the Balanced Scorecard?
  • What is the influence (value) of controlling Time, Distance and Complexity on the 5 forces model of Porter to determine the attractiveness of an industry?
  • What is the influence (value) of controlling Time, Distance and Complexity on the value chain model of Porter to analyze activities through which firms can create value and competitive advantage?

The TDC Matrix can be used throughout the entire strategy process (vision, mission, strategic analysis, strategic decision-making, strategy implementation) to assess the value of the internet and of ICT.
