"From iPods to E-ZPass technology to YouTube to eGovernment initiatives, the impact of technology is changing our lives more and more each day. This book a counterpart to a Maryland Public Television documentary, chronicles how and why and shows ways people can take advantage of the "revolution" in their personal and professional lives. As technology expert Henry C. Lucas, Jr., argues, the fundamentals of business and the economy - not to mention the details of daily life - are changing in every market, in every industry, and in every nation. His book explores the most significant of these technology-enabled transformations to help readers understand and appreciate the opportunities and threats presented by a new, technology-driven global economy."--BOOK JACKET

Information technology and the productivity paradox : assessing the value of investing in IT by Henry C Lucas( Book )
11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 397 libraries worldwide
As firms push rapidly into the business world of the 21st Century, the question has remained: how do firms measure returns from substantial investments in IT? Henry C. Lucas effectively answers this question by providing a creative and reliable framework for measuring the competitive advantages and profits gained through investments in state of the art information systems. There is value in IT, and it is possible to show returns, Lucas argues - unfortunately this value just doesn't always show up clearly on the bottom line of a ledger. In five expertly presented sections, he spells out exactly what. Businesses can expect from their IT investments. This is the first book to allow executives to see exactly how their IT investment can be expected to return value, thereby maximizing their advantages in an age of global competitiveness

Although information technology (IT) has long been used to support existing organizational structures, dramatic developments in communication technology over the last decade have revolutionized the design of today's leading organizations. Using such examples as Frito-Lay, France Telecom, Baxter International, Merrill Lynch, and American Airlines, Henry C. Lucas, Jr., goes beyond mere description of networked organizations, virtual organizations, and similar "businesses of the future" to show how to use information technology - combined with conventional approaches to organization design - to create the technologically-based "T-Form" organization

The search for survival : lessons from disruptive technologies by Henry C Lucas( Book )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 306 libraries worldwide
In recent decades, technology has changed rapidly to the point that it can very quickly affect a seemingly impregnable company or industry. Unexpected technological developments enable innovators to offer new products and services that threaten incumbents. In order to survive, existing firms must be able to see a disruption on the horizon and figure out how to respond. The Search for Survival: Lessons from Disruptive Technologies examines organizations that failed to develop a strategy for coping with a technological disruption and have suffered greatly or even gone out of business. The first chapter presents a model of how firms can respond to and hopefully survive a disruptive technology. Each following chapter focuses on firms that have failed to survive or whose future is in doubt, accompanied by an extensive, detailed discussion of the lessons learned from each company or field's failings, covering examples from industries such as recorded music, book publishing, video, newspaper, and higher education

Beware the winner's curse : victories that can sink you and your company by G Anandalingam( Book )
17 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 219 libraries worldwide
"In the roaring 1990s, many companies seemed to claim great victories - acquiring another company, obtaining state-of-the-art technology, or hiring a potential CEO savior - only to find that they had made a great mistake. The term "Winner's Curse" was coined by economists to explain an effect commonly observed in auctions." "In this book, G. Anandalingam and Henry C. Lucas, Jr. expand the model of the Winner's Curse to explain how companies like Tyco, MCI-WorldCom, and Bank One overpaid for acquisitions, and how shareholders suffered as a result. They elucidate the disasters that happened during the rush to acquire new technologies and illuminate the reasons that companies that were seemingly pioneers in the dot-com era fell by the wayside."--Jacket
