On October 2016, Simone and the team released the Platform Design Toolkit 2.0 and the companion seminal Whitepaper, titled “From Business Modeling to Platform Design. How the Platform Design Toolkit can help organizations to craft shaping strategies to explore and transform markets, with the smaller investment required”.
That paper, sponsored by SWIFT’s Innotribe program, became a landmark of platform thinking: it was translated into five languages and, together with Platform Design Toolkit 2.0, totaled 40k downloads to date. This work has been instrumental to kickstart the field of Platform Design and generated a plethora of copycats and mimicking approaches in the market.
Now Boundaryless is looking for new Thought Leadership partners that want to support the edition of a new Whitepaper, set to put new foundations for platforms & ecosystems thinking in a changing world facing the wicked problems of the Anthropocene.
On one hand, new socio-economic and environmental risk factors creates a need for a broader recognition of the role that highly scalable strategies could have in tackling wicked problems. On the other hand, organizational models are catching up with the continuity between the inside and outside of an organization, and business model and organizational innovation are coalescing: new technologies such as blockchain and crypto, machine learning and data are opening new frontiers of design for ecosystem mobilization strategies.
If you're interested in becoming a Thought Leadership Partner by sponsoring the White Paper, please get in touch by answering this email.
