Gianluigi Giustiziero (Frankfurt Frankfurt School of Finance & Management), Tobias Kretschmer (LMU Munich), Deepak Somaya (U of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), and Brian Wu (U of Michigan) have a new article published at Strategic Management Journal titled: "Hyperspecialization and Hyperscaling: A Resource-based Theory of the Digital Firm."

They use descriptive theory and formal modeling to shed light on the phenomenon of digital scaling, providing critical insight into how technology-enabled resources are reshaping firms in the digital economy.
