Het businessmodel van de toekomst: de code gekraakt

Data hebben de wereld veranderd. Ze zijn het einde van de vertrouwde manier van ondernemen. Grenzen tussen sectoren vervagen en smelten samen tot één gigantische chaos.

Uit die chaos zullen nieuwe, datagedreven ecosystemen ontstaan. Als bedrijven willen transformeren naar future-proof organisaties, moeten ze die slimme ecosystemen begrijpen en inzien waarom ze de toekomst zijn en hoe ze worden opgebouwd. Ze moeten binnen en buiten hun industrie, buiten hun vertrouwde leefwereld leren denken.

Dit boek wijst de weg in de wereld van kleine ecosystemen en helpt grote en kleine bedrijven om slimme ecosystemen te bouwen. Het zet de regels uit, geeft de rollen in het systeem mee, verkent de probleemgebieden en de dogma's van het nieuwe denken.

Wees daar waar klanten samenkomen
30 december 2021 Rik Vera beschrijft in 'The Guide to the Ecosystem Economy' hoe bedrijven in de toekomst veel meer moeten samenwerken. De basis voor de samenwerking is altijd het platform waar klanten terechtkunnen. Dat lijkt allemaal heel logisch, maar gemakkelijk is het niet.
