Driving sustainability through the power of platforms and ecosystems

Sustainability is a systemic challenge and needs systemic thinking across and beyond traditional boundaries. This means that different actors simply must collaborate.

Platforms and ecosystems represent a new way of organising that can yield significant benefits for society. This can reinvigorate public-private collaboration: a new bridge between the entrepreneurial spirit, public mission, public authorities and private firms. With new exciting opportunities to rethink the link between them.

The interest in platforms and ecosystems is strong but unfortunately, the success stories are still a few. As many leaders and organisations lack platform skills, there is an urgent need for a more science-based approach to this new business construct.

Thought Leadership

Our recent White Paper with Thinkers50, Growing Together, collects the thoughts of the leading academic experts and practitioners on platforms and ecosystems, but also provides clarity on the key strategic questions and creates a link to the vast reservoir of knowledge available.
