Handbook of Digital Innovation
Weatherhead faculty members Satish Nambisan, the Nancy and Joseph Keithley Professorship of Technology Management; Kalle Lyytinen, Distinguished University Professor; and Youngjin Yoo, the Elizabeth M. and William C. Treuhaft Professor in Entrepreneurship, have co-edited a new book, Handbook of Digital Innovation (Edward Elgar, 2020), that brings together ideas, concepts and perspectives on digital innovation from diverse disciplines including business, engineering, science, economics and policy studies.
Handbook of Digital Innovation represents an effort at building a transdisciplinary understanding of digital innovation with several contributors from across the country from multiple industries. One contributor was Ken Loparo, the Arthur L. Parker Professor of Electrical, Computer and Systems Engineering from Case School of Engineering.

- Digitization and Phase Transitions in Platform Organizing Logics Many traditional manufacturing and engineering companies are challenged to integrate and augment their products with digital capabilities. The challenges in such changes - now called digital transformations - are not just a short supply of talent to develop software and data-based capabilities and the acquisition of related software skills.
- Satish Nambisan has authored an invited article Digital Innovation and International Business which will be published in the journal Innovation: Organization and Management. Digitization has opened up powerful new ways for multinational enterprises (MNEs) to connect with global markets, resources and partners and to pursue innovation in foreign markets.
- Digital technologies are now creating and shaping physical reality. [These authors] call this phenomenon the "ontological reversal". The ontological reversal is where the digital version is created first, and the physical version second (if needed).

- The emergence of novel and powerful digital technologies, digital platforms, and digital infrastructures has transformed innovation and entrepreneurship in significant ways. Beyond simply opening new opportunities for innovators and entrepreneurs, digital technologies have broader implications for value creation and value capture.

- The increased digitization of organizational processes and products poses new challenges for understanding product innovation. It also opens new horizons for information systems research. [These authors] analyze how the ongoing pervasive digitization of product innovation reshapes knowledge creation and sharing in innovation networks.
