    Akarsh Jain

    A good introduction to Platform business and ecosystems, it's highly recommended to incumbent players in an industry that is being digitized. For entrepreneurs, the book offers several useful frameworks to include in designing their business models and expansion strategy. But the book has a conservative take on platform business startups, hence any entrepreneurs reading this must keep that bias in mind. Overall, the book can benefit from the inclusion of short exercises or food for thought.

    This book was not as enlightening as I expected by itself, but was also an easy read. Probably because I knew some of the concepts reading Stratecherry. But there is a lot of food for thoughtful strategy. Will be exciting to discuss applications of concepts once a few friends have read it.

    Required reading for those interested in building online platforms, investing in tech, or simply understanding the business models that influence us.

    Excellent insights in a time starved world. Would be even more helpful for skimming readers if each article has a fuller summary than “Ideas in Brief”.

    4.5 for a very good collection, if not the very best on platforms and ecosystems.

    A primer on business platforms and ecosystems. Although the business cases and examples are a bit outdated, the books offers a great foundations about players, strategies, interactions, value stream flows and risks of developing and evolving a platform.

    It is an interesting book for those who seek to implement a platform. Despite some utterly boring articles, there are others rather interesting covering the whole gamut of strategies patterns, from disintermediation to multi-home. It is definitely worth reading
