Dear TIM Colleagues,
The November-December 2019 issue of Business Horizons (Vol. 62, Issue 6) is a special issue focused on Digital Transformation and Disruption. This topic is clearly relevant for the TIM community, so I thought I would share the contents with you. The special issue is guest-edited by Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein (two of Business Horizons' most prolific and highly cited contributors).
This issue has valuable, insightful, cutting-edge articles that deal with key issues at the intersection of business and technology innovation. The authors tackle issues ranging from AI, to blockchain, to growth hacking, to transparency, to supply chain, to team management, to higher education.
This material may be valuable for you to use in class, or to spark new research ideas, or as a reference for some of your existing research, or to share with practitioners who have an interest in these topics.
Happy reading!Greg Fisher, Editor
