Abstract

It is obvious that experts of KM field must understand technological disruptions. In the current market conditions, the corporate and technology foresight are the key elements of business landscape analysis. Firstly, authors present key definitions and difference between disruptive innovations, technological disruptions and radical innovations. These three key concepts are highly relevant for modern corporate management foresight. Secondly, we will present the McKinsey´s twelve potentially and primary disruptive technologies. Therefore, we focused on technologies that we believe having significant potential to drive economic impact and disruption by 2025. An economically disruptive technology must have the potential to create massive economic impact. Thus, we will present the disruptive technologies that drives most economic growth and productivity. Thirdly, authors discuss about key elements of current technology transformation and summarize it to create big a picture and better understanding. Thus, we present comparative analysis about the changes in the Gartner hype cycle between years 2008–2016, which verifies this important aspect of fast technological disruption. We will present the most important ten trends and foresights for year 2017 and discuss about these issues. Fourthly, we will present the foresight tools for the innovation knowledge management and corporation management. New tools for corporate and technology foresight are needed. These new tools help leaders to manage volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity especially in the turbulent conditions of hyper-competition and technological disruption.
