Media Strategy and Technology Innovation

Advancements in technology, most notably the Internet and digital media arts, are changing many of our basic assumptions regarding information, news and entertainment. Here we  examine the business strategies and technology trends that have transformed the field ​  of communication. Innovation is about much more than developing new products services. It’s about reinventing business and organizational processes and rewiring them for creativity and growth. Welcome to the Digital Navigator Earth Globe.
