How to Frame the Sharing Economy Narrative (and Move On)

Is the sharing economy the first attempt to instill community perspectives in the traditional process of venture capital backed innovation? Or, on the contrary, is that an attempt of Venture Capital to monetize peer to peer and cooperative trends emerging from a pervasive internet and a global cultural shift?

The Platform Design Toolkit is in the Making

My interest towards Platform Design is growing and I’m working to build an entire toolkit for Platform designers that is inspired by the principles of Design Thinking. In this post I release an updated Platform Design Canvas, building on community feedbacks, as well as a new tool: the Platform Motivations Matrix, a companion tool that, with the Canvas, it’s now the foundation of an upcoming Platform Design Toolkit.

Digital Evolutions: Startups, Platforms and Ecosystems

In search for new ideas to frame Platform Design as a discipline in a more global discourse regarding the digital market, I went in search of complementary theories: most of this research have been consolidated in a Lecture that I gave at two Startup Accelerators lately. In parallel, the Platform Design canvas is transforming into a more comprehensive Toolkit.

A Systematization of Methodologies in Startup Thinking

While coaching or advising companies creating products and services or facing innovation challenges, I’ve been dealing with several methodologies, which have shown useful or even crucial at different stages and for different purposes.

Dozens of approaches, disciplines and methodologies exist and, while is not the objective of the post to push for one or another, here you will find a recap of several of them in a systematization in a credible body of knowledge.

Why Open Governance and Scalable Leadership matter

What happens when the productive infrastructure becomes affordable and new cooperative models for capitalization and venture financing emerge? What new perspectives from this convergence?

The Platform Design Canvas: a tool for Business Design

The Platform Design Canvas is a fork of the Business Model Canvas which aims to facilitate the design of business, but also products or organizations, looking at them as platforms for value creation. It’s nothing more (or less) than a tool for platform design.

Policies for Shared Innovation and Local Development

For some time now I’ve been making assumptions about what policies and changes the public administration should adopt in order to promote local development and long-term innovation. Despite these reflections are inevitably linked to the Italian scene, I think they might be generally helpful. These practices are also already being tested in some contexts (both nationally and internationally wide) with relevant results.

Mastering Collaborative Innovation through Events

Short time, well facilitated, cooperation efforts, often linked to specific live events (during which a community gathers around one ore more challenges, or a topics) can be an extraordinary experience and deliver outstanding results.

The adoption of well-tested methodologies summed up with a natural inclination of people to meet and share plus the huge amount of learning that this kind of events can trigger make so made contexts the ideal tool to generate multiplier effects and produce much more value than the necessary investments would recall.

That’s why in many contexts, ranging from social to corporate innovation, from product design to business modelling short-term cooperative events are gaining an important role.
