A Recipe for Digital Disruption
Thales Teixeira, Lumry Family Associate Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
In recent years, a new wave of digital disruption has been taking over the Internet. It is characterized by business models focusing on the separation of consumption activities that traditionally went together such as content and advertising or browsing and purchasing products. In this talk, Associate Professor Teixeira will show how a variety of firms, both incumbents and startups, are using digital technologies to break the bonds between activities that consumers want to do and what they previously had to do. Examples across the retail, telecom, education, transportation, and media industries will be discussed.
