But it takes a careful strategy to become a platform leader
Managers of companies seeking to be platform leaders have several key technological and business decisions to make. They must evaluate whether their product or service has "platform potential." They must decide how to pursue their platform leadership strategy. Will it involve "coring"--making a fundamental element of a system? Or "tipping"--gaining market momentum over a competitor?
With each method there are challenges and pitfalls. New research by Annabelle Gawer and Michael A. Cusumano offers several case studies of companies that won--and lost--the race for platform leadership.
