The big picture overview on the global revolutions of new platform economies…
thrive, survive and create grassroots prosperity; moving forward, the world of borderless global business managed by monstrous-hyper-metadata, mysterious-artificial-intelligence and mandatory-cyber-security intertwined with mobilized-block-chain will soon become new reality. Who will own it, control it, what will drive it or destroy what or for whom. Why it’s so critically important today on how and why century old businesses and institutions with global expertise and rich experiences are now extremely vulnerable. They have to morph with digitalized futurism or like a 20,000 employee strong organization they too may disappear overnight like Thomas Cooke, leaving 600,000 customers stranded at airports. As if no one had any idea in the corporate corridors …was it a just sleep-walking culture? Who is next? This is almost like coming out of the dark ages into electricity.
Nations can save themselves from restless citizenry and blowing winds of populism:
As futurism of ‘creating local grassroots prosperity’ divides into two distinct national mobilizations. Firstly, creating skilled citizenry capable to swing with global-age demands and secondly, creating massive digitization of midsize economy to enable global-speed-performance to match trading with 100-200 nations. Nations with acquired mastery will thrive and lead; generational transformation at magical speed with full deployments of platform economy is a prerequisite. Sounds like rocket science; it is, but still very doable and progressively easy.
Urgently needed are bold thinking, fearless debates and new priorities on mobilizations
Digital divide is now mental divide. As futurism of ‘creating local grassroots prosperity’ divides into two distinct national mobilizations. Firstly, creating skilled citizenry capable to swing with global-age demands and secondly, creating massive digitization of midsize economy to enable global-speed-performance to match trading with 100-200 nations. Nations with acquired mastery will thrive and lead; generational transformation at magical speed with full deployments of platform economy is a prerequisite. Sounds like rocket science; it is, but still very doable and progressively easy.
The United Nations 74th Sessions of General Assembly:
September 2019, at UN HQ some 100 Heads of States spoke of chaos; lack of grassroots prosperity identified as big challenge was a common thread…so was diversity, tolerance and inequality… plus increasing role of women in society were touched by all…and lastly climate change issues…most seeking answers, most trying various solutions, most ready to engage. All Heads of States seem ready to do something.
Lack of bold and unified global programs to cover such common debates was obvious.
Alibaba model; based on advanced thinking of interconnecting million Small and Medium Enterprises via single gateway with billions new global customers on platform economy format with fascinating ease became a global legend. So, what’s stopping other nations? Any quick response without deep and precise study may not fit these challenging issues, because, in-depth-study a must, as it’s not that easy unless mobilized like a national grassroots revolution. Let’s go deeper.
The Big Questions: How will national mobilization of Platform Economy models allow nations to create their own million-mini-Alibaba? How can national leadership finally bring massive digitization of public sectors, deploy overflowing technologies and integrate all this into new style of economic leadership thinking?
The Biggest Question:
If these are not new funding dependent projects…
they are new-thinking hungry and global-age-style-execution starved projects
so what’s stopping this?
How to create many million new mini-Alibaba: today, creating globally interactive trading platforms are new tests for economic leadership in gasping economies. This critically advanced subject, not be confused either with website and social media management, or routine academia drills…calls for daily diligent meetings till significant progress becomes visible, equally this global-age-thinking demands regular Cabinet Level Meetings if national leadership decides to boost its economy via superiority of national mobilization of digital platforms. This massive transformation automatically creates a culture extremely conducive and pragmatic to creating baby Alibaba on such platforms.
Big business is big business but small business is much bigger; within the walls of most national boundaries, once national mobilization properly deployed, ‘small enterprises’ in cross-combinations grows into larger sizes like massive pillars and solid foundations boosting local economy. In-depth understanding of mobilization and deployment strategies are critically essential. Massive adoption of almost free technologies as wings of new growth and awakening of hidden entrepreneurial talent lying dormant across the most nations as the driving engines becomes the master strategy. Uplifts of the midsize business economies of the world will significantly eliminate grassroots prosperity issue; especially these are ready to go sectors in need of immediate mobilizations under a master program.
Currently, some 30 nations in the race;
engaged with elections trying to promise superior economic performance while most nations still have their motherboards missing? To drive superior-performance a computer has a motherboard, why can’t a nation have similar type motherboard platforms to drive all of its big and small digitized economy expansion with ultra-superior performance?
For extreme simplicity; let’s divide ‘midsize businesses economy’ into four major parts;
The Enterprises Groups: This is where small and medium size businesses of the old and new world trying hard to expand in global space but achieving little or no progress. Stuck with internal digitization of operations challenges they are pushing decade old methods to expansion. If digitization is not new funding dependent but rather new thinking hungry, why there are such critical skills gaps. What’s stopping this?
The Trade Groups: Trade Associations and Chambers of Commerce helping vertical sectors in their own traditional ways spanning over decades but are such vertical trade groups able to showcase their membership in a grand way across the nation and global markets? If showcasing of progressive membership profiles attracts global opportunities why trade-groups are so afraid and what level of expertise they posses to deploy such large scale mobilization. Why they play a critical role?
The Public Sector Groups: Government departments mandated to foster economic growth across all vertical sectors, how such government agencies not only fully digitized internally but also offering to all sectors of vertical businesses and exporting communities large scale options on Platform Economy thinking. If local governments were active and aggressive leaders they will not only boost national economies but also calm restless citizenry and avoid windy storms of populism. Massive induction is required.
The Founders Groups:
Every nation is blessed with all sorts of founders, owners and entrepreneurs including senior management and therefore to thrive in Platform Economy such entrepreneurial leadership must demonstrate expertise on digital platform economy because without being savvy how will they grow? Why aren’t digitally showcased are their enterprises on highly integrated platforms to create a global bounce and create world-class exportability performance? Without them platform economy will have no sizzle.
Anything less than 90% advancements in each of these categories will keep the nation trapped Identify 1000 to 10,000 enterprises in need of global exposure or exportability Start a high level in-depth debate and discussion with authoritative knowledge and solutions Start national mobilization of a major agenda to change the picture of national midsize economy. Create a national level dedicated Digital Platform Economy Agency with national agenda Stop trade wars and start skills wars. Help the internal working citizenry.
EU just tabled a $100 billion dollar program to uplift it internal industries.
Australia just announced 50 Billion dollar to fix it manufacturing base.
Prime Minster Trudeau promised to uplift 2000 start-ups with 50 thousand dollars each.
Trade-wars are proof of poor quality exportability, poor skills and poor policies.
Skills-wars are about creating highly skilled citizenry creating superior edge of exportability.
The time is here for blossoming local grassroots prosperity.
Smart leadership is working on this.
Push Button Options:
Projectile Economy; where Rocketry and Mars Missions drive the agenda, think twice Inversion Economy; where grassroots transformation becomes a top priority, top choice Platform Economy; where massive digital mobilizations uplift major vertical sectors, start today
The Platform Economy:
Around the world, advantageous are those nations already missed the First, Second and Third Industrial Revolution; now standing at the gates of Fourth industrial Revolution they already have a jump start. Right now, any high quality digitized world-class vertical Trade Group segment is a critical component for shaping something like Mini-Alibaba. What does this mean for smart economies going forward? What are the next challenges on creating grassroots prosperity? What will be the Election Messages of New Promises going forward? While, economic superiority of super-power-nations via trade wars keeps slowing down world economy.
The 100 plus micro-power-nations from the middle of global hierarchy may attempt fully digitalized and globally accessible platforms showcasing enterprises may open up unlimited wide reaching opportunities of trading and exporting.
Ahead of 2030: As discussed in media, why will Top Ten Economies have combined GDP of USD $200 trillion? Adding further perspective, China and India will contribute $110 Trillion, USA $32 Trillion and Japan $7 Trillion. What does this mean? How will meaningful translations fit platform economies on mobilization and deployment strategies? How will you apply all these in your own vertical markets in your regions?
Deeper study is critical…
Today’s Challenges: Will next economic leadership going to be about “skill-wars or trade-wars” Old models of random quick fix helping of SMEs gets mostly wasted, creating alternate economies demand alternate thinking like national mobilizations of commercialization with LIVE linkage to global digital access platforms. A new and smart world is awakening right in front of us. Round-table discussion with authoritative command on such issues and participation of top trade-groups and national leadership is a good start.
