Join Professor Paul Patton, Course Director, Strategy & Competition, with the University of Manchester to explore and discuss some topical issues influencing current business strategy, innovation and efficiency.

The Masterclass will explore topics such as:

1. How our behaviour is now related to being an ‘onsumer’ rather than a ‘consumer’.

What does this mean for business strategy? What do we observe about ‘onsumer’ behaviour while engaged in online purchases? What is ‘artificial scarcity’? What do we know about BIN (Buy-it-Now) v END (Final Price) pricing?

2. An overview of the Sharing Economy, Disruptive Technologies and new business models.

What is the Sharing Economy and associated new business models? How has Disruptive Technologies enabled the growth of the sharing economy and new business models?

How has disruptive technologies impacted innovation and efficiency within various businesses.

Participants will have an opportunity to explore and discuss the above topics and relate to their own *‘onsumer’ behaviour and their business models. 

*Onsumer is someone engaged in online purchasing
