Blockchains can change the way we collaborate

London School of Economics

Blockchains are disrupting the business world, and their impact on the global economy will only continue to grow over the next decade. While blockchains have previously been used mainly in the financial sector, they are becoming more and more widespread across all kinds of industries. But what changes do they bring to the table?

Blockchains may help address key challenges inherent in interpersonal and interorganisational collaborations. Blockchains can be simply understood as digital ledgers where several entities have joint control over the shared information. The technical design of blockchains makes it virtually impossible for any single party to unilaterally change what has been recorded. In this way, blockchains greatly enhance the security, credibility, and auditability for every piece of information that has been verified and recorded.

In addition to ensuring security, blockchains also enhance the speed and lower the costs of information sharing and communication. Like any other solution, blockchains are appropriate only for certain types of collaborations. Overlooking the disruptive effect of blockchains on the way collaborations are structured and implemented, managers may run the risk of falling behind others in today’s competitive economic environment.
