Read Chapter 1

Multiplier Summary

Use platform thinking to activate network effects and create exponential results.

Platform thinking is an exponential shift in understanding about how value is created in the Digital Age. It’s the Digital Age equivalent of electricity in a steam-powered world.

To make the shift to platform thinking, focus on enabling others to co-create value, not just delivering value for them to consume.

As you explore platform thinking, consider how you could network different types of resources—things, people, ideas and connections—to deliver 10X return on investments you’ve already made.
