The continuous technology-driven unbundling of markets and the rising complexity and unpredictability of our socio-economic systems are pushing us to redesign a theory of organizing that works for the 21st century.

Such a theory, as Simone Cicero shared recently on our virtual stage, is based on transforming organizations into networks of loosely coupled micro-entrepreneurial units, powered by shared services and scalable contracting technologies. In a few words, the Ecosystemic Organization needs to be able to play the full spectrum of organizational models: from the modular to the vertically integrated, from the platform to the product-focused team. Check the recording of Simone's session below.

Simone Cicero is an entrepreneur, facilitator, thinker, writer and host, with a focus on open business models, ecosystemic organizations and platforms: he worked on these topics in edge contexts such as emergent, self-managed organizations, and startups but also with large institutions, ranging from Fortune 500s to the UN, to explore and experiment a new theory of organizing for the XXIst century.

In 2013 as a result of his experience with open and systemic business models, Simone created the first fully open-source methodology for Platform and Ecosystems thinking - the Platform Design Toolkit - an approach that effectively contributed to kickstart a new design domain, and now accounts for more than 70 thousands practitioners all over the world. This and other works allowed him to be featured in Thinkers50 Radar class of 2020.
