Power in digital platforms and the transformation of managerial practices
Digital platforms have proven to be highly disruptive in our societies creating new markets, leading innovation, and becoming central economic actors. With an increasing number of longstanding firms gradually adopting this type of structure, management scholars’ interest on them has increased, with some voices starting to conceptualize them as new organizational forms with fluid or fuzzy boundaries. This research seeks to expand the theory by understanding specific power mechanisms in fuzzy or boundaryless digitally-enabled organizations, and how this impacts managerial practices.
