À propos du cours

The purpose of this course is to help individuals and organizations survive when confronted with disruptive technologies that threaten their current way of life. We will look at a general model of survival and use it to analyze companies and industries that have failed or are close to failing. Examples of companies that have not survived include Kodak, a firm over 100 years old, Blockbuster and Borders. It is likely that each of us has done business with all of these firms, and today Kodak and Blockbuster are in bankruptcy and Borders has been liquidated. Disruptions are impacting industries like education; Coursera and others offering these massive open online courses are a challenge for Universities. In addition to firms that have failed, we will look at some that have survived and are doing well. What are their strategies for survival? By highlighting the reasons for the decline of firms and industries, participants can begin to understand how to keep the same thing from happening to them. Through the study of successful organizations, we will try to tease out approaches to disruptions that actually work. Our ultimate objective is to develop a strategy for survival in a world confronting one disruptive technology after another....

This has to be one of the best courses out there. Legacy companies with reputation and huge share of the market failed to realize the the contribution of digital technologies. They lost share within a short time and their management couldn't cope up the technologies rapidly. As a result, their reluctance resulted to the demise. Professor Lucas referred to Blockbuster, Borders and Kodak as the three amigos and gives a deep research about their problems and disruptions.

The course is fun and informative. I learned many things and broaden my perspective on surviving disruption more practically. I also observed many good adopters and change refusing companies and see the consequences. Thank you professor, I also like Franky.
