The Networked Society (NeSo) can be viewed as the next phase for how people and organizations connect and communicate to live, work and play through the interplay of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) at the local as well as the global scale. The interplay of these complex layers are enabling transformative change across industries and societies, catalyzing entirely new economic and social structures and relationships. The NeSo promises to deliver growth and prosperity based on greater social cohesion and environmental sustainability. Yet, it takes a connected ecosystem to transform the world and no single entity owns the NeSo. In order to increase understanding of these emergent dynamics, we seek to provoke new research themes and tackling of strategic challenges created by the vision of NeSo through explorations such as:

  • How might we frame, synthesize and represent the spectrum of inter-woven social and technology dynamics?
  • Which dynamics will emerge as key drivers of NeSo and how might they evolve?
  • What are potential futures of product and service systems and associated business models?
  • How might we develop robust strategic alternatives in terms of business models or open innovation for creating and delivering new value?
  • How might we identify organizational approaches and strategic interventions that enable technology-led companies to respond to potentially disruptive changes?

Join us for a highly interactive, team-based, face-to-face session where participants will explore the intersection of strategy design, research and market challenges and presentations from strategy researchers and practitioners.

It will also form part of Marie Curie European Industrial Doctorate program - COINS (Complex and Open Innovation for Networked Society), a strategic partnership between University of Leeds and Ericsson.
