P2P - brands- modules (4)

Why also non Digital Brands will eventually become Platforms

To which extent, componentization will lead to the transformation of the very same concept of the brand? Transforming into Platforms is the next calling for brands and market co-evolution will define the winners.

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

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.

The Era of the Lean Corporation

A more accessible market, coupled with new reasons behind entrepreneurship and a new Hacker ethics in management could seriously succeed in transforming the corporate.

Only a company that embraces the waste not, and kai-zen (change for the better) and knows how to develop shared innovation contexts and participatory processes – rather than being monolithic – could assume a changemaking role.

The fourth era of innovation (or fifth perhaps), will be a matter of methods and contexts, efficiency and cooperation.

The corporate that will be thriving in this era will be different in shape and strategy, from the one of today which is too busy designing new complexities to start thinking about the future.

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.

How Peer to Peer Communities will change the World – Interview with Michel Bauwens, P2P Foundation founder.

Among the big changes that affect our world right now, the “peer to peer revolution” that is pervading everything, is the most promising from a sustainability, democracy and freedom standpoint. Will the great promise that lies behind cooperation, decentralisation and peer drive value-creation be fulfilled? I interviewed Michel Bauwens, P2P Foundation founder to have a real idea of the breakthrough potential that p2p holds for us and our future as a society.
