The end of Kodak and the IS Scholarship

I wrote a research essay reflecting on the end of Kodak and the new role of IS scholarship. The core argument is based on the generative nature of digital technology that leads to the emergence of layered modular architecture and how it creates new types of innovation dynamics (an example of such innovation of digital camera). I argue why the idea of product, industry and hierarchical decomposition (as a way of dealing complexity) is now fundamentally problematic.
