Ecosystems are the flavour of the month. But, amid the hype and hyperbole, there is often a dearth of real-life organizational experience and wisdom. In the end, all that matters to executives is whether ecosystems could benefit their organization and, if so, how best they can make those benefits a reality.

There is an urgent need to cut through the theories and examine what actually makes ecosystems work, and why some work better than others. In their consulting work, Alessandro Di Fiore and his team at ECSI Consulting have witnessed a gulf between theory and practice.

Executives understand the opportunities that ecosystems offer, yet they need guidance on the *how*. The start of this process must be a realization about what an ecosystem actually is – and isn’t. In this session, Alessandro shared how to design an ecosystem that improves the performance of your organization.
