The disruptive dozen
Some technologies could truly disrupt the status quo, alter the way people live and work, and rearrange value pools across industries. The McKinsey Global Institute’s new report, Disruptive technologies: Advances that will transform life, business, and the global economy, identifies 12 technologies—including next-generation genomics, autonomous vehicles, and 3-D printing—that could have a massive economic impact. Our slideshow details each technology’s economic-value potential.
In parallel, a new McKinsey Quarterly article, “Ten IT-enabled business trends for the decade ahead,” updates our ongoing work on technologies that are already shaping the top-management agenda.
