Competing in the Platform Economy: Platform Business Models and Strategy

platform business models and strategy

While platforms have been around for centuries, digital platforms surfaced about two decades ago and are now gaining market dominance, domain by domain. The majority of the biggest companies in the world (based on market capitalisation) rely on asset light platform business models with strong network effects that leave little room for competitors. Every company, often sooner than later, faces new challenges since the rules of competition change dramatically when platform players enter the scene. We offer to you a training to better understand the effects of platform business models on your company, strategic options available to you to react to this challenges (including related opportunities and risks), as well as the competencies, organisational settings, and processes you need in order to stay competitive in this new platform economy. By learning from example, you will see what actually may cause disruption to an incumbent company and know the success criteria to position yourself in an optimal way.
