The Power of Ecosystems
1. April 2021
Not all partners have to follow the same rules in #ecosystems. Orchestrators can create governance tiers to strike a balance between standardized formal contracts and partner-specific informal relationships. This allows them to effectively coordinate many diverse partners around a new value proposition.
Karolin Frankenberger, Andreas Reiter and Joachim Stonig presented these findings from their current research in the webinar series on the “Power of Ecosystems” by the Business Ecosystem Alliance. This initiative of the #thinkers50 organization reunited a global audience of more than 5’500 people interested in ecosystems.
