This volume discusses business disruptions as strategic measures to dominate the design cube comprising design-to-market, design-to-society, and design-to-value business segments. It analyzes the convergence of disruption in innovation and technology, business practices, public policies, political ideologies, and consumer values to strengthen competitive business practices. Bringing together contributions from global experts, the chapters add to knowledge on contemporary business models, and convergence business strategies towards disruptive and radical interventions in manufacturing, services, and marketing organizations.
Disruptive innovations led by contemporary trends tend to transform the market and consumers' landscape. These trends include shifts from closed to transparent and open models of innovation, shifts from providing only physical products to industrial product-services combination (servitization), and moving from conventional manufacturing and marketing paradigms to industry 4.0 business philosophy (automation). Focused on the triadic themes of disruption, innovation, and management in emerging markets, this book will serve as a valuable compendium for researchers of entrepreneurship development, regional business and development, contemporary political ideologies, and changing social values.
