We’re just back from the first Platform Design Bootcamp in Milan, where we widely explored the practice of platform design in all its facets - from the basics to network effects, from how to design a workshop to the future of platforms.
It seems clear from the interactions we had with our community, that Platform Design is seen as a force of transformation for the world and the society we share globally.
We feel we're at a pivotal moment of transition in the way we approach the narrative on platform and ecosystem thinking. We believe it's time to transcend industrial narratives of platform design, of conquering, and that there's a strong emerging convergence with the necessity to rethink the meaning of the platform designers' work in today's world.
This week's issue goes in the direction of putting back the organization and the economic discourse within and all-around landscape and community. Not outside of it.
