Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are growing at unprecedented rates and generating billions of dollars in revenue. They are the envy of many companies, both big and small.
Each company has moved away from its original and core business model—often multiple times. They are sprouting in different and unexpected directions: horizontally, vertically, and even diagonally. They have entered new markets and, in some cases, created markets where none had previously existed.
They are winning (to use Charlie Sheen’s now infamous term) because they are following an entirely new blueprint and business model. They have spent a great deal of time and money building extremely powerful and valuable ecosystems, partnerships, and communities.
Is this the wave of the future? How can you harness the power of the platform model to build a success business?
