From the Inside Flap:

Incredibly rapid innovation is a hallmark of our time. Thesocial media discount site Groupon went from revenues of $33million in 2009 to $760 million in 2010. Facebook has crossed 800million users since its launch in a dorm room seven years ago.Kiva—the online lending platform—funded $200 million inmicroloans to people around the world in less than six years. Whilethese types of organizations and achievements were inconceivableonly a decade ago, many other corporate giants have either losttheir competitive foothold or completely closed shop.Information, Technology, and Innovation provides you withthe tools and knowledge to survive the shifting sands of today'srapidly changing business models.

Author and IT strategist John Jordan examines basic principlesunderlying technology, management, and economics to show how rapidinnovation is reinventing competition in today's fast-paced globalmarketplace. Addressing the many ways in which IT has drasticallyaltered the business landscape over the past forty years—thepersonal computer, the Internet, GPS, cell phones, andsmartphones—Information, Technology, and Innovationreviews the consequences of our technological revolution and showshow to move forward by incorporating these traits into newinnovations.

By examining several recently displaced industries,Information, Technology, and Innovation reveals a variety ofways that technology innovation can translate into a mix of threatsto established patterns of business behavior, as well asopportunities, including:

  • The Music Industry: How at least a dozen changes to the musicindustry business model—including MTV and the surge ofmega-retailers—helped set the stage for the disruptive threatfrom Napster

  • Newspapers: Was Google the sole culprit in the demise of newsreadership and will the increase of tablet users help re-energizethe business?

  • Health Care: How Wal-Mart, CVS, and Walgreens are placingclinics in selected pharmacies to address routine matters thatwould often otherwise require an emergency room visit

Information, Technology, and Innovation also discussesthe various technologies you can use as building blocks to moveyour business forward and concludes with five broad areas of rapidchange in the foreseeable future.

The ways people behave, relate to each other, and organizethemselves to work are changing at warp speed. Information,Technology, and Innovation shows you how to make sense oftoday's rapid changes by moving beyond a mindset of optimization.Instead, the wealth of technological and organizational changes isthe starting point for tomorrow's business transformations.

From the Back Cover:

Change has never happened so fast.

How can individuals and organizations respond?

Technology is changing the fundamentals of how we do business, but few organizations can meet the challenge of innovating and executing at this speed. Familiar leaders like Amazon, Apple, eBay, Facebook, and Google make up a short list; benchmarking them is not an option for most companies. Instead, Information, Technology, and Innovation shows you how to think more broadly and see deeper patterns in order to take advantage of the many emerging capabilities that will transform your business.

Exploring the intersection of our connecting technologies and our institutions, and the changes that come to business as a result, author John Jordan—a clinical professor and expert in IT strategy—ties technology to the business and social environment in an approachable, informed manner, covering a broad range of topics including:

  • The "Net" generation

  • Behavioral and information economics

  • Security and risk

  • The many implications of power laws for business

  • Crowdsourcing and other organizational innovations

  • Mobile phone industry impact

  • Internet principles

  • Location, mobility, and identity

  • Cloud computing and the enterprise

Seven case studies review how emerging technology has disrupted long-standing business models in data and communications, software, music, news, health care, retail, and real estate. Plus, each chapter concludes with a "Looking Ahead" section, laying out potential obstacles you may face along the way, strategies to overcome them, and opportunities that await you.

A must-read for investors, managers, and executives, Information, Technology, and Innovation helps you better anticipate and capitalize on the powerful technology changes that define our interconnected world.
