    Session 1632: Corporate Strategies of Platform-Based Businesses: Scale, Scope, and Organization

    This session aims to link together emerging research on platform businesses and classic corporate strategy research on firm scale, scope and organization, two important streams of work that have remained largely independent despite the close connection between them. The panelists will address several salient topics at the intersection of the two streams, including business scope of platform companies, scale of platform businesses, relationship between scale and scope, and organization and governance of the multilateral relationships within and across platforms. The session will highlight many ways in which classic corporate strategy research can enhance our understanding about the emerging platform phenomenon, and how it can be expanded by incorporating some of the distinctive features of this new organizational form.
