Material design guidelines

We challenged ourselves to create a visual language for our users that synthesizes the classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science. This is material design. This spec is a living document that will be updated as we continue to develop the tenets and specifics of material design.

The Double Game of Digital Strategy

This is the first in a series of articles on setting and executing digital strategies with speed, foresight, and savvy. Digital is often compared to electricity. Both are pervasive, and each has been a fuel for broad-based economic transformation. But the comparison is misleading. Todays production, distribution, and uses of electricity, in spite of significant improvements in efficiency, would be familiar to Tesla and Westinghouse. By contrast, the possibilities and economics of digital - driven by sustained exponential trends like Moores law for processing power and its various derivatives for bandwidth, storage, and more - are constantly changing, enabling new moves and sparking the transformation of industries. As a result, digital strategies need to continually adapt to and seize new opportunities. Executives have to play a double game: making the most out of todays contests while positioning themselves to win in tomorrows.

Innovation-based M&A

PhD thesis by Gustav Toppenberg. Resume: This research examines the technology-related integration challenges to acquisitions in digital industries and how these challenges can be managed. Historically, companies seeking to increase markets, products or customers have utilized the strategic growth process of mergers and acquisitions. Their motivation was primarily to utilize economies of scale and operational synergies to integrate acquisition targets that were similar in product, market, and customer demographics. The aim of these acquisitions was to scale the acquisition products to its own markets and customers while potentially gaining new markets and customers in the process. For companies in the digital-technology industry, the path to growth in these fast-paced markets is through the acquisition of innovation-based technologies from new and emerging companies to complement their current R&D strategies. The incumbent enterprises look for emerging technology companies as acquisition targets in order to stay ahead of the increasingly fast technology-development lifecycle. The acquisition and integration process for these types of companies present challenges to practitioners that are very different from what has been experienced in the past and will present new research opportunities for scholars researching the related domains.

On Digital Healthcare

We represent two venture capital firms, Union Square Ventures and Version One Ventures, that are keenly interested in the healthcare space. While we maintain a traditional market map (i.e. a single Keynote slide collating dozens of company logos squeezed into labeled boxes), we find ourselves with more questions than answers about how the healthcare market will shake out.

An executive's guide to the Internet of Things

McKinsey & Company: The rate of adoption is accelerating. Here are six things you need to know. As the Internet of Things (IoT) has gained popular attention in the five years since we first published on the topic, it has also beguiled executives. When physical assets equipped with sensors give an information system the ability to capture, communicate, and process data - and even, in a sense, to collaborate - they create game-changing opportunities: production efficiency, distribution, and innovation all stand to benefit immensely. While the consumer adoption of fitness bands and connected household appliances might generate more media buzz, the potential for business usage is much greater. Research from the McKinsey Global Institute suggests that the operational efficiencies and greater market reach IoT affords will create substantial value in many industries.
