Designing and Managing the Digital Organization

This thematic series will explore how organizations are assessing opportunities, developing and delivering products and services, and interacting with their customers and other stakeholders digitally. Digital technology, social media, and big data are the drivers of the future workplace, and they are already having large social and economic impacts such as increased competition and collaboration, the disruption of both old and new industries, and organizations struggling to develop new capabilities and transform their cultures.
Computers, software tools and applications, communications networks, robots, 3-D printers, and other digital technologies are changing the way organizations are designed and managed, in terms of both improving existing practices and developing new businesses and approaches. Moreover, digital technologies are not only changing organizations but also the way we think about organizing.
