THE GUIDE TO THE ECOSYSTEM ECONOMY
We’re hearing the word ‘ecosystems’ more and more often. While some wonder whether it’s just hype, others question whether an ecosystem economy is the inevitable next step given the impact of big data and technological progress on the economy.
In the wake of waves of economic uncertainty, people are looking for stability and companies are pooling their expertise. That’s how we can (co-)create trailblazing solutions for the future. In short, ecosystems are businesses that are part of a network to deliver value to customers. It’s more than just hype; it’s a movement.
There are many different types of ecosystem. Yet Rik reveals how they all share the same building blocks and dynamics, as well as how those blocks generate a sensitive, responsive and learning organism that delivers value in the current environment.
The result is an anti-fragile system that, when it’s up and running, is sustainable – meaning that it’s built to last. Every company has the building blocks to become an ecosystem. You just need to develop the momentum that will drive the engine. Every company can craft the secret power to fuel an ecosystem: ‘the double flywheel’.
In his keynote ‘The Guide to the Ecosystem Economy’, Rik answers questions surrounding ecosystems and describes the building blocks, momentum and double flywheel. He delves into the basic rules of running an ecosystem and shows how you can translate the theory into actions and results. He combines big data, AI, genetic algorithms and customer centricity to produce an inspiring and motivational burst of energy.
