Rik is an author, futurologist, business philosopher, coach and above all a very inspiring keynote speaker. He looks at companies and organisations from his unique and surprisingly broad perspective and makes it clear to them how they can continue to be relevant in the ever digitising society of the future. He likes to challenge them to distinguish themselves within and even outside of their industry.
Rik writes and speaks passionately about business models, entrepreneurship, leadership, marketing, customer focus, sales, (digital) innovation and the interconnectedness thereof.
The guide to the ecosystem economy
Successful companies ask themselves how they can still be relevant to people and society in the future. They understand the dynamics of the digital world and how to combine them with existing building blocks. They notice how big data, AI and automation are sweeping away existing industry boundaries and how companies, distribution, suppliers and customers are increasingly having to ‘work together’ in a different way: the ecosystem economy.
Questions to be addressed: what are the new dynamics? Why ecosystems? What are its building blocks? What should you pay attention to? What do you do and what do you avoid? How do you get started?
If you want to prepare your company for the future, this book is your ultimate guide.
