Porto Business School and IE Business School organise, this 6th of February, a seminar with Luis Solis - Professor in both institutions - who is going to discuss the challenge of "Managing the Next Generation of Value Creation Networks".
The next generation of value creation networks is a major challenge for managers of the organizations part of such ecosystem. We are already witnessing the first reports of a high failure rate for the transformation from an analogical to digital networks.
While technology is the major enabler and force behind the value networks evolution, updating organizations technical knowledge and skills, it is not the only challenge to overcome for management. Management needs to be aware and asses the company´s organizational readiness for digital transformation by considering other key factors in achieving a successful evolution to the next generation of value creation networks.
