25 Innovative Partner Ecosystem Leaders You Should Follow


Last Updated on December 16, 2020

Having a partner ecosystem strategy is no longer a “nice to have”.  Partner ecosystems is a topic that is at the top of mind for CEOs and Boards as they drive to have their companies innovate and compete in today’s fast-moving market.  The current issue of Harvard Business Review asks the pointed question “In the Ecosystem Economy, What’s Your Strategy?”.  

A recent Accenture survey showed that, while most executives have plans to or are already building an ecosystem to respond to threats of disruption, many partner ecosystem leaders are discovering how challenging it can be to drive results, discover best practices, and navigate the changing ecosystem landscape.  The topic has exploded, so we’ve collected a page of top research on the Ecosystem Economy and Ecosystem Cloud.

At WorkSpan, the category leader in Ecosystem Cloud, we celebrate leaders and innovators in ecosystem strategy that are laying the groundwork for success and tapping into the enormous ecosystem market. 

We’re interacting regularly with some of the top innovators in the Partner Ecosystem space.  So we wanted to share our list of top 25 professionals we think you should follow and why we love what they’re doing to advance the art and science of managing business ecosystems.  

If ecosystems has become a strategic topic for your company, keep an eye on this group of innovators to make sure you’re at the top of your game as well!
