The focus of this paper is the effect of two disruptive technologies, MPEG-1 layer 3 (MP3) audio file format and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoiP), on existing organisation structures, business strategies and operations of leading multinationals like Sony Corporation Ltd and Hong Kong-based telecom operator PCCW. After devising and applying a Disruptive Technology Management Framework, a review will be conducted of the projected impacts of disruptive technologies on the various levels of the organisations and their respective supply chains, the stakeholders affected, and how disruptive technologies may be regulated to ensure their control. The paper assesses the short and long-term effects of disruptive technologies on the telecommunications and consumer electronics industries, and the positioning of industry players.
