two weeks ago, Simone joined the Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna presenting two real case studies of ecosystem development: one from Haier group — the undisputed protagonists of this edition of the forum (read an account by Forbes)— and one from Copenhagen Capacity a clever and successful initiative from the city of Copenhagen born to support strategic ecosystems, that helped the city become a hub in eSports and Fintech.
Bill Fischer’s remarks are a good reminder of the monumental changes happenning:
- Ecosystems are potential hiding in plain sight: transformed organizations can provide the support needed to sustain the spontaneity of the ecosystem potential to organize;
- in doing so, organizations that become weaver need to let go control, be open to distribute large chunks of the value, and not just aim at capturing it;
- organizational brand value can be seriously disrupted in the process.
In this week's issue, Simone adds that a new narrative is emerging that is increasingly less about market domination and more about whole system actualization for the exploration of new possible use cases and experiences.
There’s no doubt that this transition is extremely stressful for the foundations of the traditional organization, especially to its entrenched power structures, and to the identities often at the basis of it.
