Economic Foundations of Digital Strategy/Digital Business
Tuesday, November 7, 2023
11:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. PT
In today's rapidly evolving landscape, businesses have become increasingly digital, playing a pivotal and expanding role in the global economy. The economics and strategy of digital businesses are quite different from those of traditional businesses that deal in physical goods and services. The once-unchallenged economic doctrines, such as concepts of scarcity and choice or the dictates of diminishing returns to scale are no longer sacrosanct. Digital goods often have zero marginal cost of production and distribution, increasing returns to scale, and exhibit network effects.
The webinar offers an exploration of the economic principles that underpin businesses involved in purely digital goods and the Internet of Things. The economic principles of digital businesses offer both vast opportunities and unique challenges. Understanding these fundamentals is crucial for businesses, policymakers, and educators preparing leaders of tomorrow.
