The Future Will be Built by an Ecosystem of Teams

We are entering an ecosystem economy, characterized by teams collaborating across traditional industry lines to solve the world’s most complex problems.

The growth and profound impact of the ecosystem economy can be seen perhaps most clearly at the leading edge of research and innovation, where teams comprised of individuals from diverse institutions, disciplines, cultures, and geographies come together to solve problems.  University research ecosystems are described in detail in Nature’s “The Fourth Age of Research,”  http://go.nature.com/2oQyKo8. Commercial R&D is mirroring these dynamics, as exemplified by NYT’s account of the “AI revolution,” http://nyti.ms/2il4NOE.  Not surprisingly these two worlds are becoming more highly connected.

Sizung aims to serve at the epicenter of this ecosystem economy by providing a communication tool tailored to the new realities of cross organizational collaboration.
