Digital Ecosystem & Platform Business Specialists

Secure the talent you need to compete in the platform economy

As the number of companies embracing platform strategies continues to grow,  building a strong bench of platform talent is increasingly a priority for  executive teams. Whilst there is overlap with the skills required for digital transformation, platform strategy candidates require additional capabilities in order to be successful.

To deliver the impact that boards are looking for, candidates must also demonstrate specialized knowledge of platform economics and  governance also how to formulate long-term platform strategies to incorporate and coordinate an ecosystem of third party complementors and the internal functions of the business. 

In his article Platform Talent: The New Frontier In The Platform Economy   Peter Evans of The Platform Strategy Institute outlines the key platform roles that companies are increasingly competing for the right talent  to fill.
