Download E-books Technology Shocks: Origins, Managerial Responses, and Firm Performance PDF

By Heinrich M. Arnold

Radical technological alterations (so-called "technology shocks") frequently disrupt the aggressive industry constitution. New entrants look, industries must be redefined, incumbents lose their positions or vanish thoroughly. fast paced industries - just like the frequently quoted instance of the semiconductor - have ideally been analyzed for those phenomena. yet do the findings carry for industries with longer improvement cycles just like the worldwide laptop instrument undefined?
Here, multivariate research is used to discover what administration must specialize in in order to lead businesses throughout the know-how shocks. The examine for this booklet builds on in-depth interviews with a hundred specialists and selection makers from the laptop instrument involved in know-how shocks and statistical research of distinctive quantitative surveys accrued from fifty eight companies. In numerous cases the implications problem classical educating of know-how management.
Adrian J. Slywotzky - US best promoting enterprise writer and some of the most distinctive highbrow leaders in enterprise - comments:
"In Technology Shocks, Heinrich Arnold develops a truly valuable version for examining expertise shocks, and for targeting these components that would let a firm to navigate via those shocks effectively, and again and again. even though this paintings is targeted on know-how, its pondering has important implications past technology shocks. It offers rules that managers can use to guard their organizations once they are confronted with any kind of discontinuity, technology-based or not".
