Masterclasses can be booked individually here and are included in All-Access tickets.

Platforms have completely transformed the way we do business in the 21st century. Networked business models are allowing companies to become platforms on which their ecosystems and stakeholders can share value easily.  Thanks to technology as well as the falling cost and complexity of large scale coordination, platform businesses are achieving large returns and impact with comparatively low investments. How can we apply the lessons learned from the tremendous success of platform models to other organizations?

This Masterclass will show how organizations can go beyond the traditional industrial, bureaucratic modes of management and be designed as living systems -- systems that encourage improvement and learning through interactions and relationships. This will be done by applying the Platform Design Toolkit methodology and canvases.

Who is this class for?
Corporate intrapreneurs that want to conquer markets and design better organizations. Startup founders that aim at disrupting incumbents with exponential growth. Social entrepreneurs that aim to achieve scalable impact. Consultants that help clients design innovations, and anyone wanting to understand how platforms work.

What will you learn?
This class will provide:
  • an understanding of what a platform organization is and the strategic pillars it consists of
  • An assessment of the current situation of your organization and how platform thinking could help you respond to challenges
  • A set of tools to (such as the platform design canvas) rapidly analyze an organization from the platform point of view and to design organizational changes that can be implemented as continuous experiments.
