The era of individual commercial organizations maximizing profits is over. As digital platforms continue to reduce economic, social and geographical friction, how stakeholders across the value chain access information, goods and services has ‘rewired’ markets and industries, creating new ecosystem models of competition and collaboration (often at the same time). Rewire breaks down the complexities of the new ecosystem paradigm and provides a concise yet practical playbook for business leaders to rethink their business strategies in the digital ecosystem era. A must read for any business leader!

Our taXchain digital ecosystem was born with the idea to setup a unique information platform using blockchain-enabled digital ecosystems to securely exchange tax and customs data between companies and authorities. Fortunately, Mike came into play with his ecosystem analysis that gave us not only the insights about different existing solutions but gave us a structured approach how to build the ecosystem. In this book, he provides the “cookbook” for a coherent framework that helped me to break down the complexity into work packages, build sustainable cost and price models and create a longterm roadmap for success.
