In order to help to build a community of scholars interested in studying platform-based and digitally-enabled business models by using classic core strategy questions, a popular PDW at last year's AOM 2020 online conference (with over 200 live participants and nearly 1000 YouTube views, the STR division's second most popular YouTube video) explored how conventional corporate-level strategy theory could inform our understanding of this phenomenon. This year, as an extension of that initial effort, we propose to take a similar approach to the platform phenomenon, but using a different set of questions as our theoretical lens. Specifically, this proposed PDW examines how platform-based and digitally-enabled business models can be understood in terms of organizational governance. As a step toward understanding organizational governance in a digitally transformed world, this PDW plans to provide a stimulating environment to discuss the implications of digitization for governance, and vice versa. We will focus on how digitization broadens the application of theories of organizational governance to these new organizational forms, and how they bring the need to expand existing theories through a sharp focus on the organizational and governance features that are unique to these novel organizations.
