Digital Winners and Losers
March 05, 2019
Digital technologies are upending many industries and companies. Think about Uber’s impact on the taxi business or Spotify’s impact on music downloads.
For this assignment, please identify companies/organizations that you think are winning and losing due to the same transformation. Do most of the work on the winners, and focus less on the losers, devoting attention to winner/losers according to a ratio approximately 3/1. Why are they a winner and why is the other organization a loser? Discuss the key elements of how the winner creates and/or captures value that is leading you to call them a winner. Similarly for why you are calling the other firm a loser.
Create an approximately 1000-1200 word post to make your contribution by Tuesday, March 5, at 8 p.m.
Please also respond to and comment on three other posts per module. Comments are due by Wednesday, March 6, at 10 a.m. Feel free to use graphics, data, videos and links to other sites to corroborate your points.
Selected posts will be discussed in class and also featured on the HBS Digital Initiative website.
Please prepare a 2-3 min summary of your blog post before class.
