Information, Technology, and Innovation: Resources for Growth in a Connected World | [John M. Jordan]

Information, Technology, and Innovation: Resources for Growth in a Connected World

With all of the recent emphasis on "big data", analytics and visualization, and emerging technology architectures such as smartphone networks, social media, and cloud computing, the way we do business is undergoing rapid change. The right business model can create overnight sensations - think of Groupon, the iPad, or Facebook. At the same time, alternative models for organizing resources such as home schooling, Linux, or Kenya's Ushihidi tool transcend conventional business designs.

Publisher's Summary

A big-picture look at how the latest trends in information management and technology are impacting business models and innovation worldwide...

With all of the recent emphasis on "big data", analytics and visualization, and emerging technology architectures such as smartphone networks, social media, and cloud computing, the way we do business is undergoing rapid change. The right business model can create overnight sensations - think of Groupon, the iPad, or Facebook. At the same time, alternative models for organizing resources such as home schooling, Linux, or Kenya's Ushihidi tool transcend conventional business designs.

Timely and visionary, Information, Technology, and Innovation looks at how the latest technology trends and their impact on human behavior are impacting business practices from recruitment through marketing, supply chains, and customer service.

  • Discusses information economics, human behavior, technology platforms, and other facts of contemporary life
  • Examines how humans organize resources and do work in the changing landscape
  • Provides case studies profiling how competitive advantage can be a direct result of innovative business models that exploit these trends

Revealing why traditional strategy formulation is challenged by the realities of the connected world, Information, Technology, and Innovation ties technology to business and social environments in an approachable, informed manner with innovative, big-picture analysis of what's taking place now in information strategy and technology.

    Story
    "Fantastically stimulating and well argued"
    If you could sum up Information, Technology, and Innovation in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant, Stimulating, Important


    What other book might you compare Information, Technology, and Innovation to and why?

    The Master Switch, Tim Wu. Understanding the empirical realities of the technologies that so powerfully impact our lives and the hegemony that controls it is am important concern. Each of these books fills in important aspects of that domain/


    What about James Lewis’s performance did you like?

    It was appropriate and easy to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too meaty to listen to in one sitting.

    "Case studies and real-life stories are great!"
    Would you listen to Information, Technology, and Innovation again? Why?

    This book has tons of examples, case studies, and real-life stories which make this book fascinating! Every point is followed with real example, which makes the book feel more like an interesting dialog.


    Any additional comments?

    Although great, it’s long! 15 hours is a lot to get through…but still worth it!
