Big Data, artificial intelligence and the sharing economy are changing the way we work and the way we live. At the same time whole industries are being shaken up and stirred - and rearranged through digitalization. The authors claim that innovation in business models is equally important to technological innovation.
This book describes the business model that can be seen as the common denominator between companies like Apple, Uber, Samsung, Google, Tesla and more. This business model is called disruptive ecosystem and understanding what it is, how it works and is built, will be crucial in a digitalized business landscape.

We are bombarded with buzzwords such as disruption, digitalization and the sharing economy, and the trending technologies that fuel them - the Internet of Things, Big Data and artificial intelligence. Simultaneously, we see whole industries being shaken to the core and rearranged into new patterns by new players. In this book, we posit that a new business model, the disruptive ecosystem, is at the core of this movement. The disruptive ecosystem is a paradigm that is capable of absorbing the power of digital technologies and combining them with business model and innovation theory. We believe this new business model is the common denominator between companies like Apple, Facebook, Samsung, Uber, Google, Amazon - and disruptors yet to come. Join us for some insights and a subjective analysis of today's landscape, and get our best advice on how you can become a major player in disruptive ecosystems.LEARN MORE

Wåge and Crawford have done a superb job mapping out what few executives even understand; building disruptive ecosystems. Their work takes the reader on an intellectual journey into the future of business model logic and new business development. This is deep strategic thought at its finest. Highly recommended!

Theories don't invent, they explain. As the great organizational psychologist Kurt Lewin famously said, ‘there’s nothing so practical as a good theory!’ In this book two experienced practitioners bring the lens of innovation theory to help them make sense of what they have seen during the past decade – and then use this as a springboard to explore and develop their own (very practical) theory around the concept of ‘disruptive ecosystems’. The result is a refreshing mosaic of novel insights mapped on to useful and usable elements from recent innovation research. It should be of value to students, researchers and especially to practitioners looking for a roadmap grounded in theory and practice.
