Britt Technology Impact Series


The Britt Technology Impact Series (BTIS) provides MBA candidates and the Tuck and Dartmouth communities with insights into how changes in technology affect individuals, impact enterprises and reshape industries. The series explores a different theme each academic year through events including panel discussions with industry leaders, one-on-one meetings with executives and academic seminars. At year-end, the center produces an overview of the findings that gives students unique perspectives on relevant business and technology issues. This program is made possible by a generous donation from Glenn Britt T'72, former Chairman, President & CEO of Time Warner Cable. The 2015-16 BTIS is examining the radical transformation that technology is having on business models in a series titled, The Digital (R)Evolution: Transforming Business Models.


We invite you to experience past overviews and series on hyperconnectivity, IoT, Big Data, Cloud, Social, Mobile and Video.

Current Series: The Digital (R)Evolution: Transforming Business Models

Technology is enabling the transformation of entire industries, including retail, healthcare, financial services, media and entertainment, and manufacturing. Infrastructure that once enabled technology is increasingly a new line of business itself, as companies look to contract with service providers instead of managing their own assets in-house. Mobile phones and location services are rapidly changing a wide array of services, with sharing economy companies displacing traditionally static sectors of the economy as technology enables consumers to gain access to assets without requiring ownership.

Why are we seeing so many new business models? How will individuals, executives, enterprises, and industries respond to new players with alternative business models challenging their industries? What role does technology play in enabling these business models? What industries have been most impacted, and which are likely to be significantly impacted in the future? What role does corporate IT play in supporting their enterprises’ creation of new business models? The 2015-2016 Britt Technology Impact Series will seek to answer these questions and further explore the radical transformation that technology is having on business models.
