Episode Description

The buzz: “Products have features. Platforms have communities” (Marshall Van Alstyne, MIT Initiative of the Digital Economy). It’s almost the end of 2018 and your same-old business structures, models and processes will not sustain you, whatever your industry, business type or global footprint. What to do? The largest businesses by market capitalization are platform-based models that have disrupted legacy business models, established industries, and grown at phenomenal rates. And they did not do it alone. The experts speak. Thorsten Leiduck: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together” (African proverb). Marc Geall: “I prefer to remember the future” (Salvador Dali). Dr. Bernd-Uwe Pagel: “It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed” (Napoleon Hill). Join us for The Secret to Platform-Based Innovation: A Vibrant Ecosystem.

Thursday at 10 AM Eastern Time/7 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

The pace of technological advance is constantly increasing, pressuring companies to be more effective and use innovation to disrupt – and not be disrupted.

At the same time, many businesses do not fully leverage the innovation potential of their employees and partners due to a lack of skills or ambition, or ineffective legacy technology. As a result, ideas fail to come to fruition.

Join host Bonnie D. Graham as she invites you to take an additional coffee break with game-changers for our special series that offers a glimpse into tomorrow’s hot business and industry trends around Continuous Business Innovation – and how to “innovate innovation” within your company.

Learn how you can become the savvy Transformation Leader who takes your company across the finish line as you look ahead to the next wave of business.
