Why is it important
The new economy is spawning new, highly scaled platform businesses that are rapidly gaining dominance as they globalize. American champions have to discover how to redesign their businesses for the billion people markets that are emerging. That’s where the platform strategy comes into its own, creating the perfect conditions for rapid scale at low cost.
Scale, scope and speed present the most pervasive set of transformations we have ever experienced. They are essential to digital transformation. But platforms make all three possible. Understanding business platforms is essential for leaders because it gives them access to new ways to work, as well as bring an immense business opportunity in its own right.
When leadership teams get together to decide on how to meet the challenge of transformation there is one thing they typically overlook. Research shows that change involves substantial psychic pain to those involved. They and you will over-invest in traditional assumptions and conventional ways of thinking as you approach the task of transformation.
