Conference: When tech giants take control

Join the debate on Tuesday 21st February! Jeremy Ghez, HEC Paris Professor of Economics and International Affairs, will introduce his research on the rise of the tech oligopoly comprising Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple (GAFAs). The presentation will be followed by a conversation with LSE Professor Saul Estrin.

  • These giants are not only profoundly shaping the tech industry, but also redefining the notion of governance. Taken together, GAFAs generated $433 billion in revenues in 2015, putting them at the same level as a medium-sized economy in terms of financial weight and economic might.
    During the session, Profs. Ghez and Estrin will discuss what their sheer financial weight means to the global economy and society, from influencing personal behaviours to fostering new geopolitical trends.

    How are GAFAs influencing rules and priorities in our daily life?
    How do they reshape our perception of space and relationships?
    What role do they play in the emergence of worldwide geopolitical trends?
    Are GAFAs redefining the whole notion of power?
    ​The conference ​will take place at the London School of Economics and will be followed by a networking reception at The Marquess of Anglesey (39 Bow St, London WC2E 7AU)​.

HEC Paris at the World Knowledge Forum 2016

  • HEC Paris at the World Knowledge Forum 2016

    Pierre DUSSAUGE, Professor of Strategy and Business Policy at HEC Paris, will be speaking at this year's World Knowledge Forum, with his talk entitled "How to Globalize Successfully".

    One of the major changes that has affected the world of business in the last 30 years is what has been called "globalization". However, what exactly this term covers is highly ambiguous, and more importantly, the implications for firm strategy and management are often poorly understood, as are the factors that lead certain industries to become highly globalized over a short period of time. We will therefore start out by defining what globalization really is, from a management and strategy perspective, identifying those factors that drive - or prevent - the globalization of certain industries, and examine the implications of this for individual firms.

    In an increasingly globalized economy, multinational companies have a key role to play. However, few companies have been fully successful in managing their activities across borders. Multinational companies must at the same time adapt to different local contexts and overcome the liability of foreignness by integrating some of their activities on a global basis. This local adaptation-global integration framework raises the issues of learning, innovation and strategic control in multinational companies.

    We will then go on to discuss the fundamental challenge posed by the "liability of foreignness", examine the possible strategic options available to multinational companies, examine the key factors driving the adaptation/integration tradeoff, identify all the sources of advantage global companies can leverage, and finally outline the challenges of learning, innovation, and control in global companies.
