The Platform Economy Up-Close & Personal: WDHB Launches Invitation for Open Expedition in Singapore
3rd October 2019 – WDHB, the world-leader in designing and delivering experiential learning for people & strategy development with executives, has launched a call for an open enrollment expedition on the Platform Economy together with best-selling author and recognized authority on the subject, Sangeet Paul Choudary. The three-day program in Singapore will provide senior leaders and emerging future leaders in corporate strategy, digital transformation and innovation a unique opportunity to start, accelerate or deepen their venturing into a new paradigm of business model and ecosystem management.
“We continue in the tradition of agenda-setting, a function that our Learning Expeditions over the years have held for executive teams of many of our Fortune 500 clients.” said Samuel Mueller, Chief Growth Officer, on Wednesday, when WDHB released the call for this Open Expedition.
The three-day program, built as a purposeful combination of immersive strategic discovery and facilitated reflection and exchange, is suited for any executive interested in creating value from ecosystems as we live through the deep and disruptive evolutions of the foundational structures of value creation, also characterized as the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The partner in co-design and co-delivery on this unique program is none other than Sangeet Paul Choudary, best-selling author of Platform Revolution and Platform Scale, whose work has been work selected twice as a TOP 10 Must-Read by the Harvard Business Review. On the choice of destination, he comments: “Singapore has seen the rise of the platform economy through a unique model of public-private cooperation where the government, incumbent firms, and startups have worked together to create new innovation. It is a unique destination offering insight into a tectonic shift of our time.”
As business models are becoming ever more modular, interdependent and exponential, having a clear platform strategy is key to finding an organization’s place and generating opportunities. The Open Expedition format provides exposure to current thinking and real-life examples on one of the most transformative trends of the global Digital Economy while also drawing valuable insight from peer-to-peer learning across cultures and industries.
Sunil Narang, President & CEO of WDHB explains: “We’ve always been mindful of creating authentic moments for growth with our programs and want to avoid, by any means, the commoditization of those exchanges to the level of industrial tourism – hence our ambition to pick only cutting-edge topics for our Open Expedition series,” in reference to the company’s ambition of launching more open enrollment programs in 2020 on topics that push the frontiers of learning and strategic thinking within companies.
The Open Expedition «Driving Digital Innovation in the Platform Economy » will take place in Singapore from 2 to 4 December 2019 and is available as a comprehensive package at affordable rates of USD 4,250 (standard sign-up fee) or USD 3,550 (early bird sign-up fee by 13 Oct 2019) excluding travel and hotel.
