Emerging technologies such as the Internet and e-Commerce based technologies have the potential to create new industries and transform existing ones. Incumbent firms, despite their superior resources, often lose out to smaller rivals in developing emerging technologies. Why do these incumbents have so much difficulty with disruptive technologies? How can they anticipate and overcome their handicaps?

This seminar on Managing Emerging Technologies present insights, tools, and frameworks from leading business thinkers based on the research of Emerging Technologies Management.


Scholars and practitioners in the field of Emerging Technology and Innovation contend that managing emerging technologies represents a “different game,” requiring a different set of management skills, frameworks, and strategies than those used by established firms to manage existing technologies. There is a continued need to examine key issues such as:

  • Common pitfalls and potential solutions for incumbent firms in managing emerging technologies
  • Strategies for assessing the potential of new markets and designing technologies to take advantage of market “lumpiness”
  • The need for scenario planning and “disciplined imagination” to develop strategies under uncertainty
  • The limits of patents in protecting gains from technology, and the use of lead time and other strategies
  • The power of innovative financial strategies and the use of real options in making investments
  • Using alliances and new organizational forms
  • Developing a “customized workplace”

New technologies are transforming markets, businesses, and society at an ever-increasing rate. We have a critical need for better road maps for managing our way through this new terrain. This seminar offers critical insights and useful new models for thinking through these challenges.  This seminar covers the emerging technology landscape-from strategy to finance to human resources

Also, it offers valuable insight for large established companies seeking growth in a dynamic market of rapid technological advancement. A thoughtful analyses is presented to help managers create strategies, select options, and organize to successfully manage the interface between imagination and knowledge
