“The pace of change has never been this fast, yet it will never be this slow again.”
Justine Trudeau, WEF 2018
If you have heard this speech, perhaps you have experienced the anxiety that executives, managers and entrepreneurs feel caused by the uncertainty that rapid technological development, business disruptions and social changes create. My research seeks to reduce this uncertainty by exploring the effects that digital technology has on the innovation of businesses and the formation of collaborations.
My research focuses on the area of digital innovation, defined as the use of digital technology in the process of innovating. In my research, I am considering digital technologies linked to Industry 4.0; for example, Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), the blockchain, 3D printing, and Virtual/Augmented/Mixed reality (VR/AR/MR). In particular, I want to understand how digital technology enables or drives new ways to generate value for customer and organisations.
Through various activities, my research will contribute to the broader field of Digital Innovation Management, which studies the practices, processes and principles that underlie the effective orchestration of digital innovation. In other words, generate actionable knowledge that might help your organisation to become better at innovating using digital technologies. In fact, as part of your participation, you will gain access to state-of-the-art knowledge of digital innovation and how your organisation can take advantage of this knowledge.
I would like to invite you to join in my research!
