Media Management and Digital Transformationprovides novel and empirically rich insights into the tensions, struggles and innovations of news making and managing in media organizations. From an empirically grounded perspective this book investigates how the "buzz" of new technology tends to prevent management from seeing which changes are needed and indeed possible to make in the newsroom. It presents ground-breaking research showing that fostering ingenious innovative solutions can be created from within organizations by engaging and allowing employees to recognize problems, reflect and experiment with new ways of working, using technology as support for change. The research presented arises from a four-year action research project in collaboration with three small and medium sized Norwegian newspapers, in addition to ethnographic research in newsrooms and on media organizations and phenomena in the US and Europe. It includes among other empirical examples of newsrooms transitioning from a deadline-controlled workflow to an open-ended flowline production and provides new tools and methods for fostering collaborative creativity and co-creative innovation practices. It also looks into newsrooms' attempts to strengthen their audience engagement, metrics performance and external collaborations with technology providers, journalism education and action researchers.

The recent surge of interest in “digital transformation” is changing the business landscape and posing several challenges, both organizational and sectoral. This transformation involves the application of digital technology in all aspects of business, and enables organizations to create new products and services, and to find more efficient ways of doing business. Moreover, the digital transformation is happening within and across organizations of all types and in every industry, producing a disruptive innovation that can break down the barriers between people and organizations, and help create more adaptive processes. In the information age, it is imperative for organizations to develop IT-related capabilities that allow them to leverage the potential of digital technologies. Due to the pervasive effects of this transformation on processes, firms and industries, both scholars and practitioners are interested in better understanding the key mechanisms behind the emergence and evolution of the digital business transformation. This book presents a collection of research papers focusing on the relationships between technologies (e.g., digital platforms, AI, blockchain, etc.), processes (e.g., decision-making, co-creation, financial, compliance, etc.), and organizations (e.g., smart organizations, digital ecosystems, Industry 4.0, collaborative networked organizations, etc.), which have been categorized into three major areas: organizing, managing and controlling. It also provides critical insights into how the digital transformation is enhancing organizational processes and firms’ performance through an exploration and exploitation of internal resources, and through the establishment of external connections and linkages. The plurality of views offered makes this book particularly relevant for users, companies, scientists, and governments. The content of the book is based on a selection of the best papers (original double-blind peer-reviewed contributions) presented at the annual conference of the Italian chapter of the AIS, which was held in Naples, Italy in September 2019.

Master's Thesis from the year 2019 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,3, LMU Munich (ISTO), language: English, abstract: This thesis provides support for practitioners in user-centric decision making to facilitate identifying and managing involved changes and opportunities on the human side of IT implementation, aligning CM, BPM and supplementary Design Thinking concepts and methods and building a connection to derived fields of action and corresponding recommendations, as well proposing time-allocation for implementation phases that represent life cycles of such projects. Those management disciplines on the basis of gained findings can provide reasonable support for practitioners in user-centric managerial decision making. Digital Transformation (DT) is currently a major trend. Diverse application of IT systems within the working environment such as cloud-based collaborative solutions, drew the attention of the business world to assess potential benefits, arising challenges and incurred costs of DT for organizations and their workforce. While DT initiatives often aim to integrate digital technology into areas of business and are initiated and communicated by management on a strategic level at the beginning, challenging operative digitalization and transformation is conducted by external or internal project teams in IT implementation projects. Despite great initial enthusiasm around digital topics and introducing new IT solutions, most planned change processes in organizations do not achieve the desired result. While extensive recommendations for managerial decision making on this topic were proposed in current literature, most recommended fields of action and interventions provided only high-level support lacking ideas for practical execution. Thus, expanding research in this field on investigating the practical realization of IT implementation projects was demanded.

This book analyzes the process-oriented and organizational changes related to the digital transformation of multidisciplinary design firms. Based on this it proposes a systematic analysis-based methodology for change management, which consists of two distinct, but complementary components: a framework and a set of analysis methods. It particularly focuses on the relationship between the new paradigms, perspectives, and context of change related to digital transformation. The proposed framework combines these three elements in order to identify and address areas of investigation concerning process-oriented and organizational changes in the context of digital transformation, and also quantitatively and qualitatively assesses these changes in practice. This book offers the first comprehensive review of change management and digital practice, and includes case studies to enhance readers’ understanding of change management in the context of the digitalization. As such it is of interest to both industry practitioners and researchers.

Trust: The Winning Formula for Digital Leaders is intended to help you become a more successful digital leader—and maybe a better person (more about this at the end). We know you are thinking, I am not the CEO, or even the Chief Digital Officer, I just work in the ranks of my organization, so how can this book help me? Due to a set of existential threats, like the global pandemic, all businesses are frantically trying to remake themselves into being digital businesses. Digital transformation is taking the world by storm—and everyone in the organization is, or will be, touched by it. We first studied the phenomenon of digital transformation through an extensive survey of global organizations. Called the Patterns of Digitization, the survey examined every aspect of how digital transformation is implemented. We looked at over 500 companies' business strategies, resource allocation, design practices, and looked at their “softer” side, like how the leaders actually communicate with employees. What we learned from this is—that no matter what type and size company you are, you fall into two different camps. Organizations are either "Digitally Developing" (the far majority), or they are "Digitally Mature". Through this analysis, we learned something else very important—Digitally Mature organizations are managed differently. Their leaders "align human & financial resources with the strategy", "create a collaborative, and nimble development environment", "promote open & transparent communication", and initiate other important activities. At the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Engineering, Technology and Innovation, we presented Digital Leadership: Character and Competency differentiates Digitally Mature Organizations Leaders. Through it we show how the character and competency of these leaders (the foundations of trust) help set them and their organizations apart. Our intention was not to laud Digitally Mature leaders, as it was to help lagging companies grasp what is truly involved in implementing a digital transformation and what they need to do to catch up. This has been our "modus operandi" from the beginning. But just exhorting digital leaders to show more character and demonstrate their competency with digital technologies, is still not enough. To really help them (read you) we needed to go deeper. The jewel of this book is its in-depth interviews with proven, successful digital leaders. And we didn’t stop with just exploring their character and competency, we asked them "how specifically" they build trust through their intentions, integrity, capabilities and results. Of course, these are the “four core values” of Stephen M.R. Covey's Speed of Trust framework and the basis of the book’s 20-question Interview Guide. Now, enjoy the book and see for yourselves how these leaders rely on these very humancentric actions—along with the trust and respect of their people—to lead very aggressive and very complex digital transformations. From the Inside Flap Endorsed by Stephen M.R. Covey, The New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Speed of Trust: The One Thing that Changes Everything. Foreword by Gerald C. Kane, Author of The Technology Fallacy: How People are The Real Key to Digital Transformation Digital Leaders Included in the Book Authors take a deep dive into the actions of successful digital leaders. They built an extensive interview guide, based on Stephen M.R. Covey's now famous Speed of Trust model, and conducted 1:1 interviews with the following global digital leaders: Chuck Sykes (CEO, Sykes Enterprises), Andera Gadeib (CEO, Dialego), Larry Blue (CEO, Bell & Howell), Robert Kallenberg (Director of Strategy and Organization, Porsche AG), Brandon Batten (Owner &Operator, Flying Farmer LLC), Marc Schlichtner (Principal Key Expert, Product, Portfolio & Innovation Management, Siemens Healthineers), Seth Kaufman (President & CEO, Moët Hennessy North America), Deborah Leff (former Global Leader andIndustry CTO of Data Science and AI, IBM), Krishna Cheriath (VP, Head of Digital, Data and Analytics, Zoetis Inc.), Dominik Schlicht (CEO, Talbot New Energy AG), Craig Melrose (Executive Vice President, Digital Transformation Solutions, PTC), Dagmar Wirtz (CEO, 3WIN), and Rahul C. Basole (Managing Director and Global Lead for Visual Data Science, Accenture AI). Visit patternsofdigitization.com From the Back Cover The passion of these authors and their commitment to meaningful research is abundant in this compelling read. They have studied what separates digitally mature companies from the many companies that lag behind and conclude that the ability of their leaders to personally develop and enable trusting relationships is, indeed, the difference-maker. Using the Speed of Trust framework as a guide, the authors conducted direct interviews with digital leaders and show how their integrity, intent, capabilities, and results significantly impact performance across a broad range of transformation goals. The insights and lessons learned from these interviews will be invaluable to digital leaders. The pace of change in the digital world makes it easy to get caught up in the moving target of technology details--e.g. cloud computing, artificial intelligence, etc.--and lose sight of the ever more important, human-centric dimension of building trust. Stephen M.R. Covey The New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Speed of Trust: The One Thing that Changes Everything The book is about (and for) digital leaders, the people in charge of changing the course of their organizations. Authors bring it all together with interview chapters from thirteen digital leaders on how they build trust. Excerpt from the foreword to this book by Gerald Kane This book is a gem. The winning formula developed using interviews with digital leaders from a multitude of industries provides a practical guide to transform any company into a mature digital businesses. Robert Kallenberg, Head of Strategy, Porsche AG The authors have articulated the leadership challenge of the digital era--The ability to digitally transform businesses by cultivating trust. This is a must read for all aspiring digital leaders. Chuck Sykes, CEO, Sykes International Trust is the critical difference-maker in impactful leadership. The authors have clearly identified and elevated this philosophy. It's a great read not only for all business leaders but for every employee in your organization.
