Rapid advances in technology are causing disruption in many industries. Prior research has emphasized that heterogeneity in the demand side is important in determining how incumbents respond to technological disruption. However, at present we know too little about the implications this may have for incumbents, particularly multinational enterprises (MNEs), and their strategic change processes. This research addresses this gap by looking at detailed longitudinal data from Ericsson, which reveals how the company dealt with Cloud computing as an emergent disruptive technology.
