Unbundling and Rebundling the Organization
Kicking off our series of podcasts on Platforms and Ecosystems Bill Murray speaks with Simone Cicero, Managing partner of Boundaryless and creator of the Platform Design Toolkit.
Bill has followed Simone for the best part of a decade and he's that rare thing – a thought leader that builds practical capability to change in many organizations and people.
In this episode, Bill and Simone discuss the main trends carrying over to the other side of this COVID-19 shock in 'the marketplace age and Network Organizations' rise made up of entrepreneurial units. They also cover the biggest challenges faced by traditional companies in becoming more entrepreneurial.
Simone gives his views on what will happen beyond 2021; the trends that we must consider when designing firms and organizing a society in an age of platforms and ecosystems.
Crucially, they discuss 'The unbundling of the firm', how it is happening, and the challenges to the traditional organization in unbundling and re-bundling propositions.
