The Digital Economy revolutionises
how we work, how we compete, how we organize, how we innovate
At CoDE, we push the boundaries of knowledge and management practice in the Digital Economy through leading-edge research and deep engagement with business and government
Example: The Platform Strategy Handbook, Prof Annabelle Gawer
Whether they harness the power of innovators worldwide, or whether they facilitate exchanges and transactions across consumers and users through online marketplaces, platforms are transforming competition and innovation in the digital economy. They are built on a technological core, and structure business relationships in specific ways, which are not well understood.
Co-authored with MIT Prof Michael Cusumano and Harvard Business School Prof David Yoffie, this book clarifies how to compete and win in platform industries.
Example: Open data and innovation ecosystems, Dr Carla Bonina
How is value created and captured in open data ecosystems? What mechanisms enable collaboration and leverage solutions with open data and open resources? Through in depth case studies including Latin American cities and the European audio industry, this study contributes to the open innovation, entrepreneurship and public management literatures. Outcomes: policy conference presentations (International Open Data Conference, ConDatos) + working papers for policy outlets and management journals. Engagement with government, businesses and entrepreneurs; advice on open data strategies and emerging business models.
