For years, organizations have been traditionally operating their businesses using a linear value chain. The role in the value chain would usually determine the potential revenues and regulate the organization’s activities. Recent paradigm shifts (e.g., product-to-service value proposition, digital transformation, big data, knowledge economy, and ecosystem-driven business) forced organizations to question a number of traditional business models across industries. New and older organizations which have been able to adapt and/or take advantage of these paradigm shifts have succeeded, whilst some others lost their purpose and just disappeared.

How can organizations learn from these examples? With the current fast pace of digital disruption, organizations have to embrace a business model innovation strategy, which would require a massive change of mindset (and expertise) in the workforce, organization, and industry as a whole.

This masterclass aims at presenting these issues in more depth and provide insights to strive in this new digital economy.
