Overcoming the Narrative of Convenience Platforms Key steps to a new Ecology of Platforms
A few weeks ago, on February the 25th, we had the pleasure to co-host a community webinar with David Munir Nabti and Bilal Ghalib from Pitchworthy called “New Business Models for a New World of Business”.
The webinar is part of Pitchworthy’s ASFARI challenge for social innovation supporting entrepreneurs — many of whom live in conflict or post-conflict zones in the Middle-east and North Africa — to access education opportunities related to entrepreneurship and lifelong learning.
During the webinar, we zoomed into the idea of how platforms shaped within the context of technology-enabled, globalized, western culture produce universal models and ideals that are often neither socially desirable nor relevant to many locally bound contexts.
An interesting take on how strategy and its role is changing rapidly in times when the landscape changes in unforeseeable ways. Multiplying experiments and sense-making efforts can be humbling for a culture of strategy traditionally made of bold statements. "Life can be scary for those charged with marshalling a company when everything seems to be in a state of flux."
In this outstanding piece on Stratechery, Ben Thompson applies the approach to Zero Trust Network architecture to the politics and ecology of online information, highlighting why this matters more than ever before. A wonderful addendum to our curation on the War on Sensemaking.
All our coaching and facilitation programs for organizations and teams are always available both in presence or remote and that our roadmap of releases will also bring you an alternative, online-based intense training equivalent to our 3-Day Bootcamp for certified facilitators during the second quarter.
Have you noticed that we launched a whitepaper project? We want to explore the new foundations of platform thinking in the 21st Century. As we ramp up our efforts to engage deeply our community in the development of the White Paper content, we want to pick your brain for some initial considerations on technologies and techno-social shifts, and key case studies and people! >> Send your thoughts here!<<
