Platforms for a Post-Industrial Civilization Boundaryless organizing in an increasingly complex world.
In this week's post, Simone frames the events that are currently raising global attention towards the societal collapse inherent to the rapidly unfolding effects of climate change, what does it mean for business, platforms and our civilization at large.

post-industrial platforms might look really different, and do different things: more context, more complex processes (here’s a peek).
we need to learn how to create strategies that “scale across” not just scale up.
a key enabler to help organizations in the transitions might be the adoption of “boundaryless” organizational structures.
