Many global companies are feeling growing pressure to rapidly respond to local business demands. MIT research has found that IT units are supporting these demands competitively in two fundamentally different ways: (1) reusing technology and business components, and (2) engaging in off-platform experiments. In addition, to practice both types of innovation simultaneously, they are engaged in new collaborations with internal and external stakeholder groups to create a simple and relevant set of reusable components; foster their reuse; and engage in and learn from experiments.
