Platform Strategies: with the Platform Design Toolkit, our world-renowned methodology for platform design and innovation, we help customers identify opportunities for new platforms, and then help teams design and validate their strategies on the market and generate growth: all with proven techniques inspired by the experience of the best platforms in the world, and adopted by thousands.

Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Enabling Organizations: thanks to our collaboration with pioneering organizations, we developed a sound approach to transforming existing firms, and develop new ones, as swarms of independent, entrepreneurial, self-managed teams supported by shared platform services reducing organizational debt and increasing organizational agility.

Workshops
Widely tested, time-boxed, facilitatated exploration and design sprints
WELL-TESTED IMMERSIVE FACILITATION FOR TEAMS

Our methodology lends itself to time-boxed, outcome-focused workshops that we've run across the world and online with hundreds of practitioners and organizations. If your objectives are clear this is the best way to get things started with Platform Design Toolkit for your teams. Check out our approach to workshops that provide a well-tested, scalable, and productive way to use your team's time to generate clear outcomes.

Platform Design Workshops

With the Platform Design Workshop, we help teams understand better their strategic context and then we help them create their platform strategy in co-creation. These sessions cover opportunity exploration, value chain analysis, and bring teams towards a shared, full-fledged and convergent design of actual experiences that can be brought to the market.

We run this program as either immersive multi-day workshops or as a series of on-demand, focused sprints for your team: these sessions can take place live, or online, and are shaped according to the client's needs, in line with strategic challenges, such as the launch new products and services, or organizational evolutions.

 

 

 

CLEAR OUTCOMES

“Accelerate the systemic vision behind your projects, understand value systems, and design the experiences to prepare for prototyping”

 

What you’ll achieve with this workshop:

  • Ecosystem Understanding: understand how to mobilize an existing ecosystem to create and exchange value facilitated by you, don’t waste energy in designing strategies to mobilize an ecosystem that doesn’t exist!
  • Learning Engine and Support Services: learn how to create support services for the evolution of participants towards better performances;
  • A clear Transactions Engine: identify the key set of transactions that can be scaled up, ensure that channels are created for these to happen on the platform with the minimum friction;
  • Consolidated Platform Experiences: design crystal clear experiences and define clear business models: overcome dubious descriptions and unclear understanding of what you bring to the market.

Post Workshop Coaching Services

With the post workshop additional coaching services we help teams proceed with validation and execution by providing personalized coaching services with experiment prioritization and design, interview scripting, MVP setup. After validation we help teams figure out their chicken-egg, launch strategy, selecting growth engines to invest their money on, and find the right metrics to tune their growth pace.

We run these coaching services as agile, weekly coaching sessions and we craft on-demand co-creative sprints when particular outcomes are needed. These session can take place live, or online, and are shaped according to the client's needs, in line with strategic challenges, such as the launch new products and services, or organizational evolutions.

 

 

PROGRESSING ON YOUR DESIGNS

“Follow on with prototyping, experimentation and validation cause nobody wants to just put post-its on a canvas: execution is key”

 

What do we help you with after the workshop:

  • Achieve validation without burning money: identify all the steps to validate your value propositions: save unnecessary expenses developing things your ecosystem doesn’t want;
  • Develop tactics for launch and Growth Hacking: strategically define how you will grow once the strategy is validated, how to develop defensibility and how to invest in growth.

Long Term Programs
Customized consulting programs targeted to specific innovation challenges
PERSONALIZED PROGRAMS

We help organizations and teams with ad-hoc consulting programs designed to tackle specific challenges and needs. We help you solve organization-wide challenges related to scaling up platform-ecosystem thinking inside the org such, innovation portfolio management, creating platform design practices, and developing ad-hoc customized toolkits for platform innovation. We follow teams long-term through validation and prototyping of new ideas.

Ignite Programs for Innovation

With the Ignite Program we help organizations tackle two strategic challenges at once: explore new platformization opportunities, and instill platform thinking literacy among large groups of employees.

Our ignite programs are powerful, co-creative ways to get a number of teams to execute exploration and design, and to create internal communities of practice.

We run this program as either immersive multi-day workshops or as a series of on-demand, focused sprints for your teams: these sessions can take place live, or online, and are shaped according to the client's needs, in line with strategic challenges, such as the launch new products and services, or organizational evolutions.

 

 

AN ENERGIZED COMMUNITY

“Explore new business opportunities, create a space for teams to exchange, improve and generate internal platform leadership”

 

What you’ll achieve with this workshop:

  • A wide exploration perspective: explore opportunities for new platform business, starting from your existing products or beyond;
  • The greatest value for the investment: leverage on the scalability of the open-source methodology with Boundaryless facilitators supporting multiple teams all at once;
  • Cross-team inspiration and cross-seeding: discover potential synergies between teams, projects and new business cores by allowing teams to exchange insights and progress;
  • A motivated community of practice: bring home a well-trained community, diverse experiences and create the basis for an internal leadership that can lead the rest of the organization inside the platform age.

Innovation Platform Portfolio Management

When organizations mature in their understanding of the platform economy they realize that they have to look at their technological and organizational capabilities and unbundle them and rationalize them.

An unbundled and reorganized set of capabilities lend themselves to being rebundled nearer to the customers: efficiencies can be sought in leveraging on existing user bases, generating so-called spillover growth between different products, marketplaces, extension platforms.

Partnerships will be attracted due to the broader consistency in how your organization commercializes services and innovations in a more strategic way, achieving flow, growth, and optimization

 

 

OPTIMIZED GO TO MARKET STRATEGIES

“Bring innovations to your customers more efficiently, piggyback on growth pockets and rationalize units”

 

What you’ll achieve with this program:

  • An understanding of your capabilities: and how they can support your go to market strategy consistently;
  • How to drive growth across different value propositions: piggyback on your user bases, generate network effects more easily;
  • Optimized partnership programs: attract more partners due to your capabilities to bring efficiencies; as partners create extensions to your services they can reach many more users;
  • Create interfaces and monitor new patterns: as you create interfaces between pieces of your products and services portfolio, infrastructures and APIs you can intercept patterns of use and monitor new trends for innovation.
