The digital economy has significantly impacted countries throughout the world by contributing to the growth of the economy and the further progress of societies. Recent developments demonstrate that the information and innovation-driven era triggered integration of traditional activities and digital technologies. Moreover, the rise of innovation has been accelerating in emerging industries such as cleantech, the new generation of information technology, biotechnology, and high-end equipment manufacturing. The estimations provided by the World Economic Forum predict that “new value creation over the next decade will be based on digitally enabled platform business models” (www.weforum.org). Therefore, traditional organizations must change the approaches adopted and capture value in the context of digital disruptions. These tendencies raise a number of management challenges that need to be solved by the efforts of the scientific community. Therefore, this Special Issue provides the platform for a fruitful discussion and the development of relevant theories.
What novel techniques are leading to ground-breaking theories? To answer this question, researchers are encouraged to integrate new ideas from other disciplines. The extension of general systems theory in the field of organizations, aiming to transform prevailing approaches, is a classic example of such integration. Furthermore, researchers are encouraged to apply new methods, which would be helpful for theorizing. Management challenges appear at many different levels: micro, mezzo, and macro. Thus, we have to answer the following questions: What is the role of employees in the digital transformation of businesses? What are some fruitful ways to deal with the challenges of new methods, approaches to work, and attempts to maintain the high performance of organizations? How can we balance the needs of employees and the demands of owners and managers? How are the processes and capabilities of organizations changing and how do these changes influence performance? How do the dynamics of competition, networking, and pressure groups shape organizations and what managerial approaches are relevant in this context? How does consumer behaviour shape the market situation and challenges of an organization? How can we respond to the challenges of economic disruptions and technological and social changes? Thus, this Special Issue contributes to closing these gaps in the scientific literature. High-quality papers are warmly welcomed.
