Digital Disruption Management: European Strategies and Practices

There is little doubt that new information and communication technologies have accompanied profound shifts in contemporary society. Although digital trends are shaped by social systems, it can be asserted that digital technology acts as a substrate for disruption.

The labor market and organizations are highly exposed to these disruptions given how dependent they are on technology and innovation. The challenge in this world is to manage this type of disruption – digital disruption.


Dates June 25-July 20, 2018
Location Paris (June 25-July 6) and Rome (July 9-20)
Credits 8 ECTS

The program aims to develop a broad understanding of the manner in which disruption has manifested itself over time and the specific impacts it has had on the world of work and organizations.

Once the nature of digital disruption will be understood, students will learn about how managers can respond with specific tools and methods. Managing digital disruption requires a flexible approach based on learning from experience. It also requires a constant awareness of the ethical implications of lessons learned. Combining the unique expertise and resources of Université Paris-Dauphine and LUISS, students will acquire knowledge and skills through lectures, seminars, visits to various organizations, workshops, lab activities and hands-on group projects.

The European Union, along with the governments of host countries France and Italy, have both developed economic policies strongly emphasizing the preparation of the workforce for digital disruption. The EU has its Digital Single Market Strategy, France has its highly digital “Nouvelle France Industrielle” (NFI), and Italy its “Piano Industria 4.0”.

The joint Dauphine-LUISS program is aligned with the objectives of these supra-national and national strategies. Dauphine has a long tradition of pedagogical experimentation and is highly active in investigating new forms of workspaces such as co-working spaces or fablabs. LUISS has privileged relationship with the business world and a strong research focus on innovation management.

Dauphine is the birthplace of the Research Group on Collaborative Spaces (RGCS) and LUISS has been a key player in the network, including the establishment of a chapter in Rome. LUISS has built the Laboratory of Fabulous Things (L.O.F.T.) as part of its effort to provide students with an immersive experience of new work practices as part of their program in Management and Data Science.

The program lasts a total of four weeks – two at Université Paris-Dauphine and two at LUISS in Rome. The two weeks in Paris focus on developing a broad understanding of digital disruption and its implications for organizations and innovation. The two weeks in Rome are more concentrated on the acquisition of practical skills in managing digital disruption.
