Businesses that consider their ecosystem an expansive set of building blocks and are driven by the opportunity to better deliver values, outcomes, and experiences to individuals and industry ecosystem participants will be able to adjust to meet market change or opportunity as required, much in the same way nature finds a way to adapt. For instance, to mitigate market disruptions, Company X starts to rely on its ecosystem players and partners, while leveraging technologies that allow it to understand the horizon and flex its offerings to stay relevant to the changing consumer needs and requirements.
