About the Paper
The challenges of engaging in business ecosystems are substantial and can be daunting for organizations. Despite the current hype around the topic, we still have a limited understanding of the inter-organizational dynamics between the participants of an ecosystem and the capabilities required to successfully leverage its potential.
To address this challenge, we suggest a capability framework for business ecosystem leadership and organization. Building on our previous work about Organizing for Business Ecosystem Leadership, the paper defines and discusses nine critical capabilities organizations need to actively shape business ecosystems, leverage their potential, and serve as a constructive, indispensable player in such a dynamically evolving universe.
Structured along the three dimensions of strategy, organization, and relationship management, the nine domains form a powerful combination of structures, systems, and mindsets that provide a tangible guideline for companies who want to thrive in the new ball game.
