Tapping your resources of energy and imagination, look at your company from the perspective of your once and future customers and ask these questions relentlessly:

Business Ecosystem Defined

Business ecosystem is a community of organizations and stakeholders (players) operating within a particular business environment, which collaborate and compete in an economic web of relationships.
A business ecosystem is the network of organizations—including suppliers, distributors, customers, competitors, government agencies, and so on—involved in the delivery of a specific product or service through both competition and cooperation.

Each entity in a business ecosystem ecosystem affects and is affected by the others, creating a constantly evolving relationship in which each entity must be flexible and adaptable in order to survive as in a biological ecosystem.

These relationships co-evolve through time subject to the general forces in the business environment and the specific moves made by the web of players.1 

Today, the business ecosystem replaced traditional concepts of industry and market with business communities of interacting organizations that together create, deliver and consume goods and services. These ecosystems are complex networks of players, that go far beyond traditional competitors, customers, and suppliers. They comprise communities of organizations that collaborate and compete in economic web of relationships."1
