Excerpt: Most IT organizations are focused on incremental innovations and cost savings. They listen to customers, aiming to meet their needs and solve their problems.
Michael Schrage, research fellow at the MIT Sloan School of Management’s Center for Digital Business, offers a different and challenging perspective. He describes IT as “Innovation Technology” and sees digital media platforms fostering product and process transformation.
In this Harvard Business Review webinar, Schrage discusses new technologies — from cloud computing to machine learning to Big Data — that are transforming companies. He discusses technology’s role in innovation, transformation and creating new value for customers, and describes the cultural changes that need to happen to make digital investments more productive.
