The theoretical framework for this book was our ground-up theory of the Scope, Size, Speed, and Skill (4Ss) and Technological Situational Happenstances (TSHs) applied to Big data analytics. With in-depth research, we catechized the effects of the coalesced insights from big data influencing the architectures of incremental and radical business models. We discussed data inflation and the global impact of TSHs. We showed how deft leadership used insights gleaned from big data analytics to make strategic decisions. The big data syndrome led to Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia in our case study. Our study of APPLE Corporation's use of large datasets was explicitly analyzed. Leaderships' failure to incorporate those contextual elements afforded by insights gleaned from big data analytics, concomitant with the associated costs led to acute forms of irrational rationalism, groupthink, and faulty decision making. We explained the statistics used to essentially describe this paradigm shift, such as high dimensionality, incidental endogeneity, noise accumulation, spurious correlation, and computational costs. Significantly, machine learning challenged the status quo by effectively changing the existing technological landscape. To scholarly critics, how would supervised and un-supervised learning algorithms advance the trajectory of perspectives in applied knowledge under the umbrella of big data? Further, political and socio-economics tied to big data was examined. We recommended leaders should have a shared cognition on how to leverage analytics from large datasets for competitive advantages. Most significantly, leaders or managers should be cognizant of the inextricable synergies that seamlessly flow from adroitly implementing a strategy to profit from the speed, size, skill, and scope (i.e. the 4Ss) of the big data environment, conditioned by the leveraging of those transactional situational happenstances generated by increases in market volatility. We concluded the algorithmic processes of leveraging insights from big data have globally resulted in a disruption of current technological pathways.

Master's Thesis from the year 2019 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 2,0, VU University Amsterdam , language: English, abstract: This thesis seeks to explore the enhancing and inhibiting factors consultancies have to address when implementing services related to artificial intelligence. To address the discussion of current research, whether AI is an enhancing or a disruptive innovation, the author compares the answers to the research question with existing literature on service innovation. He aims to show whether AI requires a different innovation process than other service innovations. Firstly, the literature review addresses the theoretical background of this study by discussing literature on service innovation capabilities. Hereby, in particular, the factors that are associated to contribute as enhancing factors. Secondly, the methods section outlines the approach of the research design, data collection and data analysis. Thirdly, in the results section, the results of the study are presented, compared with the existing literature and placed in the discussion of the existing literature. Finally, in the discussion section, the results, their implications for service innovation theory and consultancies in practise are discussed. The research concludes with its limitations and the potential areas for future research.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 2, , language: English, abstract: In the course of the last century the economy experienced a gradual shift from the primary and secondary to the tertiary sector. With the emergence of disruptive IT the service sector’s traditional barriers are experiencing a fundamental erosion. In this context “disruptive IT” stands for big data, predictive analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence. The overall hypothesis this thesis seeks to verify is “disruptive IT will substitute human capital to an extent that will irreversibly materialize in an unprecedented technological rate of unemployment”. The investigation commences with an analysis of unemployment statistics and a trend analysis over the last decades with the objective to reveal what could be perceived as technological hike of the natural rate of unemployment. It will be shown that historical data yet does not provide sufficient evidence to become scientifically convinced about the hypothesis laid out before . This does not come with surprise given the disruptive nature of recent IT advances which have yet only moderately started to unfold their full potential. Hence, disruption makes past-oriented statistics a second best guess of what to expect in future but suggests a rather simulation-based approach validated by expert opinion. Therefore, we take a look at the contemporary study and analytical model of the Oxford researchers Carl B. Frey and Michael A. Osborne followed by the criticism of their criteria-based outside-in assessment on behalf of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Next part of the discussion is the analysis of a recent report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) based on a self-assessment of industries’ opinion leaders and field matter experts captured via means of employer survey. Finally, both the common denominator of as well as the key separators between the discussed material get consolidated and interpreted – with the distinction of the latter into those that arise out of methodological heterogeneity in contrast to those which relate to results and conclusions. It’s not academics’ primary concern to make predictions and surely not part of their routine tasks. This master thesis wants to make a contribution to the way policymakers, employers and employees as well as the society as a whole shape the future and to serve with quantified substance as facilitator in nudging science to expand the comfort zone and rethink the frontiers of academically serious work.

A top healthcare futurist and consultant shows healthcare professionals and stakeholders how to redirect resources and leverage innovation to improve wellness and lower costs. Despite being the wealthiest nation on earth, the United States spends much of its healthcare money and resources pursuing the wrong goal: curing people after they get sick. In this provocative book, Nicholas J. Webb charts a bold new path that puts the focus not on reactionary treatment but on anticipation and prevention. Webb argues that we have a unique opportunity to leverage disruptive innovation to fulfill these goals. Emerging digital technologies now make it possible to collect, analyze, and act upon the enormous quantities of health-related data that every individual generates every day. This data often foreshadows disease and can alert the healthcare provider to the existence of a life-threatening condition before there are any outward symptoms, thereby enabling caregivers to pivot from treatment after the fact to anticipation, prevention, and, when necessary, reduced treatment to correct a smaller problem. This is The Healthcare Mandate—a powerful and illuminating guide to the new tools that healthcare professionals can start using right now to: See their clients not only as patients to be cured but as constituents to keep healthy. Identify and respond to emerging health problems as early as possible. Access and share constituent data with other healthcare providers. Navigate the increasingly complex world of patient data rights. Meet the challenge of non-medical online healthcare providers. Address constituent lifestyle choices that lead to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Respond to the increasing consumerization of healthcare. Drawing upon his decades of experience as an industry expert with dozens of medical patents, Webb offers a positive and achievable vision for the future of healthcare.
