Amanda West summarizes specific group discussions about how to best explain why ecosystem building has emerged as an important approach to economic development on Medium.
Ecosystem building is an emerging field at the convergence of two complex activities: economic development and cultural transformation.
In many ways, it may feel like a sharp departure from the conventional wisdom, cultural norms and strategies for the success of the Industrial Era.
For some, this is an exciting new way forward, and for others, a daunting shift away from what they know and count on. Our job as ecosystem builders is to clearly explain why ecosystem building is an important approach to economic development in a way that calms the natural fears of change and invites everyone to join in.
