Ecosystems, continued

By: John D. McGregor

Abstract

At Philips, the very large size of the company makes it possible to think of the product line organization as an ecosystem within the corporation. The inner source approach used by Philips establishes an ecosystem that involves several business units in the corporation. The ecosystem extends outside the company to include the users of Philips equipment, a highly skilled audience, and more indirectly organizations that learn from the experience of Philips regarding the open source techniques.
