"Shared Purpose" by James F. Moore
New eBook on Benefits of Shared Purpose in a Connected Community of Companies, Eight Lessons for Ecosystem Success
Over the course of the past few years a loosely-organized community of more than a thousand companies has overturned the tech industry. Their work is visible in smartphones, wearable sports and health monitors, thermostats that get to know our lives and cars that can prevent crashes.
The author, James F. Moore, former Fellow at Harvard University’s Berkman Center, is an expert on leadership and strategy in large-scale businesses and social networks. He was given open access to the community and chronicled their story through the voices of its people.
He discusses how collaboration and sharing are fueling successful multi-industry business ecosystems. Q&A with Segars.
