At its core, blockchain as a digital ledger and database is about making decentralized economic systems work and minimizing the role of central actors. In this light, business leaders and companies may leverage the technology more if they learn to redefine entities, actors, and interactions, as their business boundaries increasingly fade and interweave.
This calls for a decentralized mindset which will allow for businesses to co-create value in networks and ecosystems. With a decentralized mindset, businesses can better leverage the technology and shift away from traditional business thinking and conventional principles of inventing, producing, packaging, and shipping products and services.
In this ITU ESPRESSO talk, we are joined by Head of the European Blockchain Center and ITU Professor on the Master in IT Management program, Roman Beck. Tune in for a discussion about the relevant steps for businesses to take and the role of the decentralized mindset in the blockchain space.
