By taking a multidisciplinary perspective, students learn how their own discipline as well as other disciplines seize topics related to digitalization in research. Reports and guest talks about digitalization efforts and use cases for applying digital technologies in practice enrich the understanding of digitalization as a phenomenon of interest.

Inhalt: In recent years, technology has rapidly changed the way we work. Digitalization, automation and novel ways of communication have altered the way that employees engage with the workplace. Career pathways have also changed. Today, graduates have many jobs, craft multiple careers and work in many industries in their lifetime. Rapid advances in technology, i.e., the use of AI, are enabling firms to automate processes, which is displacing or changing routine work. Simultaneously, the power of knowledge workers is rising. In parallel, new platform industries and new forms of collaborative and distance-based work are emerging. All of this is offering new challenges and opportunities. In this course you will explore how rapid technological advances are creating digital disruption that will impact your work in the future. It will enable you to identify opportunities to craft your own career pathway in a rapidly globalising, knowledge and service-intense economy. In particular, we will discuss (1) Digitalization and datafication in the workplace (2) Constant connectivity and shifting boundaries (3) Digitalization and job crafting (4) Digitalization, control and resistance (5) Platform economy and platform work (6) AI and the changing nature of (routine) work

Entrepreneurship - Digital Transformation (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Stefanie Habersang

14-täglich | Donnerstag | 14:15 - 17:45 | 02.04.2024 - 05.07.2024 | C 14.001 Seminarraum

Inhalt: The emergence of digital technologies, digital platforms and digital infrastructures has transformed innovation and entrepreneurship significantly. Beyond simply opening new opportunities for (corporate) entrepreneurs, digital technologies have broader implications for value creation and value capture. Studies have shown how digital technologies fuel new forms of entrepreneurial initiatives that cross traditional industry/sectoral boundaries, embrace networks, ecosystems, and communities, integrate digital and non-digital assets, and accelerate the inception, scaling and evolution of new ventures. Studies have also documented the ways by which established large companies engage in forms of corporate entrepreneurship to redefine themselves and radically restructure their innovation strategies and practices to respond to digitization. It is undeniable that new digital technologies transform the nature of uncertainty inherent in entrepreneurship thereby, encouraging a radical rethink of how individuals, organizations, and collectives pursue creative endeavors. Importantly, digitization of innovation and entrepreneurship holds implications at a broader regional/national and societal levels with the potential to inform policy making entities and other stakeholders. Studies have indicated how digitization can translate into innovation productivity gains, increased regional entrepreneurial activity, and broader economic and social gains. Similarly, digital infrastructures and platforms have allowed for the emergence of new work structures that redefine industry/sectoral boundaries and shape local and regional economic health. The following selected topics will be discussed and worked on in the seminar: (1) Digital business models (2) Scaling a digital business model (3) Openness in digital business models (4) Managing the digital ecosystem (5) Digitalization and corporate entrepreneurship (6) Guest lecture
