Innovation as an Ecosystem:

Disruptive technologies (e.g. smart phones) fundamentally change the value proposition in a market according to a distinct pathology. In addition to understanding disruptive innovations, it is equally important to understand the human dimension of technology innovation – how social, cultural, and religious factors impact the acceptance or rejection of technological innovation. Beyond the technological and human dimensions, it is equally important to develop both the organizational structure and organizational culture dimensions that encourage and support an ecosystem of innovation.
