Vice President
The Center for Global Enterprise
October 01, 2013
The Center for Global Enterprise was founded by Sam Palmisano, former President, Chairman and CEO of IBM. Globalization has transformed the economies of countless countries. It has also transformed business – how it’s conducted, where it’s conducted, and by whom. The transformation has touched the very structure of the enterprise as well as the nature and definition of economic “value.” A key element of the change has been the emergence of the Globally Integrated Enterprise (GIE), which refers to companies that are truly “global” (as opposed to “multinational”) in their management and their operations, utilizing global supply chains not just for products, but also services, capital, ideas and intellectual property. As at previous inflection points in history, we need a new language – and new thinking – to harness the promise of this new era for society and avoid the peril that can arise in periods of change. The Center for Global Enterprise is dedicated to this purpose.

Executive Briefing, February 2016, The Shard, London

Businesses predominantly grow in one of two ways, either organically, focused on internal resources, or through mergers and acquisitions. There is a third way, which some call ‘leveraged growth’ – leveraging the resources and creativity of other people.

BearingPoint thinks this is a new discipline for businesses, and they are calling it Digital Ecosystem Management.

In this video, Dr Peter Evans, VP Research, The Center for Global Enterprise, discusses platform businesses.
