Does digital management exist? Challenges for the next generation of TVThursday 17 October 2019 15:00 to 16:30
Professor Eli Noam, Columbia University
EP Abraham Lecture Theatre, Green Templeton College
What is the next generation of digital television? How will it be managed? And, more generally, are the principles of business management applicable to new digital organizations?
Professor Eli Noam will kick off a discussion on these questions, building on two of his most recent and complementary books, entitled ‘Managing Media and Digital Organizations’ and ‘Digital and Media Management’.
This workshop will begin around the themes of these two books, initiated by a brief summary of Professor Noam’s major points and conclusion, with a focus on online TV.
This will be followed by questions and comments by respondents Mari Sako, Professor of Management Studies, Saïd Business School, and Damian Tambini, Associate Professor, Department of Media and Communications, LSE, and a discussion with the audience, moderated by the session’s chair, Principal of Green Templeton College, Professor Denise Lievesley.
