Workshop: Platform Economy


Internet platforms have experienced a meteoric rise in recent years: Amazon, Facebook, AirBnB, Uber and many more. When is it promising to initiate a platform yourself? When is it appropriate to participate in a platform? And what do you need to know about business models and how platforms work? Participants gain insight into the background of platforms and develop an exemplary platform model.



The workshop will provide participants with the skills and management tools they need to shape the transition to a platform-based or platform-supported enterprise. In addition, the team will outline ways in which the implementation can look like in practice.



After the workshop, participants will have a common understanding of the opportunities and risks of active and passive platform strategies and will be able to prepare the decision on a platform strategy and outline a corresponding business model with the knowledge they have acquired.
