The ‘Platform Navigator’ is now available

 

Today, platform companies like Amazon, Alibaba, Apple and Google dominate our economy. However, it is not just about digital companies that have embarked on a platform journey. Platforms affect many traditional businesses and leveraging network effects will be vital for each and every company. By reviewing the most important literature and studying more than 150 cases, we have identified 88 patterns across five phases to design and implement platform business models. Not all patterns will be helpful for your business and the patterns are certainly not exhaustive. But we believe that every manager should be aware of them to sustain competitive advantage. Thus, the pattern cards will help you navigate through the Platform Economy.
