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.

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.

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.

“Towards a Cooperative, Small scale, Local, P2P Production Future” – back from the OuiShare Summit in Paris

The lifestyles we are accustomed to, our own society, the very same trajectories that sociey has made available so far to us as western citizens (education-job search-competition-consumption) are obviously and soundly, falling apart along with the debt bubble that has held this system together for decades, hiding the quite obvious flawns in thinking of society as a collection of individuals competing rather than cooperating.
