Performing and Thriving in the new era of Ecosystems
The technological, economic and social changes of the last decades have led to such a level of global interconnection that the real potential is no longer in individuals or single organizations, but in the rich and complex network of relationships between them. This scenario opens up new fundamental questions for the survival and growth of our organizations.
Who are "the right people"?
What can we do to enable their full potential?
What can we no longer ignore in our way of managing a team or a company?
What new concrete possibilities and advantages are there ready to be caught?
The answers to these questions will be guided by understanding what it means today for a company to be part of an ecosystem and how this affects in a non-linear way any flow of value within and outside the organization.
In particular, we will introduce a new concept I'm developing in the last years: ecoism.
