New technology disrupts old business models but also creates new ones. This course helps managers make better choices about the relative advantages of new technology for both adoption and commercialization of new products and services and the implementation of business process improvement. This includes asking the right questions about the viability of emerging technologies, intellectual property, market potential and organizational and managerial capabilities. Planning and implementing new technology is both a technical and a social learning process for both large and small organizations in a range of industries.
