Congratulations to Ahmed Bounfour who published a new book Digital Futures, Digital Transformation, From Lean Production to Acceluction at Springer.
This book provides an integrated overview of key trends in digital transformation, taking into consideration five interrelated dimensions: strategy and business models, society, organization, technology and regulation. As such, it provides a framework for the analysis of digital business transformation and its emerging factors, analyzing twenty-five key trends in terms of their future impact. On that basis, the book then delineates a new approach centered on the mutually accelerating links between multiple value creation spaces. It proposes a new mode of production – accelerated production of links (acceluction) – and analyzes it with respect to the still-dominant concept of lean production. Based on the results of the international CIGREF research program ISD, the book presents a valuable perspective of the expected impact of the abundance of networks and data as critical resources for enterprises beyond 2020.
Ahmed Bounfour is holder of the European chair on intellectual capital at the University of Paris-Sud, France. He is the scientific leader of the ISD international research program for CIGREF Foundation and editor of the book series SpringerBriefs in Digital Spaces.
