  • Disruptive technology is an innovation that significantly alters the way that consumers, industries, or businesses operate. A disruptive technology sweeps away the systems or habits it replaces because it has attributes that are recognizably superior.

    In this thesis the following questions will be analysed:

    • How can one estimate the potential of technologies?
    • At what point is this possible?
    • What were disruptive innovations and technologies and could one estimate its potential at an earlier stage?

    To answer this questions a systematic literature review will be conducted. Further, the process of specific disruptive innovations and technologies will be analysed. The results will be evaluated and challenges as well as patterns identified.

    The scope of the work differs for Bachelor and Master. Details can be discussed in a first short meeting (15-30 min).
