Platform Design Canvas - Platform Design Toolkit - Areas

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.

The Dharma, the Interconnected Mind and the Future of the Enterprise

Corporations can no longer hold back. Can not help but speak the same language of the people, get to the same questions and face the same thorny issue: fix the economy through a new relationship with resources and consumption. The price of not doing so? The forced end of the market and human development as we knew it.

Today I am optimistic in thinking that, in the end, our interconnected mind will pull out the problems we have to solve as a society. We may not to lose the Dharma at the end of the day and understand that giving up the change is, quite simply, a non-option.

On the role of Resources in the “Third Industrial Revolution”

Back from Barcelona, from the Panel with Catarina Mota we hosted as Ouishare at the Fablab. Great discussion about materials, supply chain and more in general about why this “Third Industrial Revolution” is about a more conscious and honest use (and relation) with resources

Fueling Long Term G-Local Innovation

On Tuesday the 23rd of October, I had the honor and pleasure to speak on the subject of gLocality and innovation at the Udine’s DITEDI (District of Digital Technologies). During my speech, I first introduced the correlation between the digitization of the economy, democratization, cooperation and resilience (in a context of access to resources that will become increasingly problematic in the future) and then moved on to the topic of company transformation.

Hacking Society (and Learning how to Fix it)

This post is about hacking our society for the better, it was a mixed inspirations that came from watching a recent lecture from Joe Stiglitz focusing on the shortage of long term sight in human, market driven, society and the urgency of learning.

Also, to inspire this writing, it’s been a sentiment that I feel growing more and more every day: the necessity to take a turn towards a more meaningful experience in life as a human being.

The Future Proof Enterprise: how to create Resilient, Enduring and Meaningful Businesses

These days, we can’t pretend not to see how the mechanisms by which we produce and consume our wealth are, finally, showing some growing signs of change.
Society is starting to look for new ways to produce and exchange value, ways that are more open, efficient, less competitive, and inevitably based more on common visions and shared paradigms. This post looks into the risks of trusting competitive advantages in an age of change.
