This ppt has been amended. I uploaded a version lacking the last two slides: a business model I was working on and the bibliography. In this version (amended) the bibliography has been added. Apologies.
A presentation over the characteristics and opportunities accruing from the platform thinking.
Open Innovation is a chatchy word that rised a lot of interest as well as critiques (especially in Europe).

On the other hand, my inpression is that under this term there is a lot going on. Platform thinking is one of these phenomena.
