Why Organisational Factors have Troubled Media Responses to New Technologies

12.30pm

Public

This presentation explores why legacy media are struggling to adapt to the contemporary media environment, allowing new entrants to seize the potential of new technologies and market leadership in high growth new sectors.

Applying insights from organisational theory, population theory, and corporate research it explains incumbent media's difficulties with innovation. It shows that organisational routines and processes, financial constraints and cultural values come together to prevent many incumbents from innovating successfully and reviews historical developments to support for these theoretical contentions.
