How could blockchain impact information governance in organizations, and what could this mean for how blockchain is implemented in business networks? In this article, Chris Rowell (Head of Education and Professional Development at Cyberium Group) and colleagues from the University of British Columbia outline how outlines how blockchain can enable new models of data ownership, data custodianship, and data access rights, and discuss the risks associated with different degrees of decentralization along each of these dimensions using two real-world cases to illustrate. The result is a set of implications for how organizations could manage risks in implementing and scaling blockchain solutions that align with their broader strategy.
In this cover story for CPABC's In Focus magazine, Chris Rowell and Tejinder Basi from Cyberium Group discuss the common challenges that professionals encounter when learning about disruptive technologies such as blockchain. Based on findings from a research project in collaboration with CPABC and the University of British Columbia, the article suggests that these challenges are not necessarily the fault of the individual, but stem from the nature of disruptive technologies themselves. We outline what these challenges are, and how professionals could seek to overcome these looking for reputable courses that build a foundational understanding of technologies that cut through the noise, sensationalism and hype, and evaluate new applications of disruptive technologies from a balanced perspective.
By providing trustworthy insights into production processes blockchain technology has the potential to profoundly change how we value consumer products and even commodities. Many organizations are currently implementing blockchain-based record keeping systems to benefit from unprecedented levels of transparency, traceability, and security in their value chains. In this article, Chris Rowell (Head of Education and Professional Development at Cyberium Group) and Harish Krishnan (Professor of Operations and Logistics at UBC Sauder School of Business) take this a step further by discussing possible implications of this for the future of consumption and competition. The authors speculate on whether significantly greater traceability and transparency in value chains could change how we value products as consumers and how firms compete.
