DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS and IT A Wicked Yet Empowering Combination

Abayomi Baiyere, Alan Hevner, Brian Donnellan, Calvin Smith, Jim Stikeleather, DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS and IT A Wicked Yet Empowering Combination. In: Blue Ocean IS Research, 1–4, AIS Electronic Library, 2015.


When Information Technology (IT) Innovations become Disruptive Innovations (DI), they bring along with them a
dimension of “wicked problems” due to their disruptive attributes; they however, concurrently usher in an “empowerment
opportunity” due to the typical nature of advances in IT. The session would explore the opportunities that this phenomenon
holds for both “Blue Ocean” research and practice by exploring its implications from three angles - individuals, organisations
and the society. This panel is set out to open up a fresh perspective to this unique dimension of IT trends that holds both
theoretical and practical insight for the IS field.
