How Self-Organizing "Tribes" are Transforming the Solar Industry - Donny Holaschutz, SDM '10 Co-founder and CEO, Bloomgi

About the Presentation

This webinar will offer an interdisciplinary perspective on solar innovation in the United States by examining over 100 case studies. It will use these research findings to describe how self-organizing groups, or "tribes," have become a driving force in transforming the solar innovation industry nationally and globally, and also focus on their potential to transform the value network.

The webinar will highlight various characteristics of successful tribes. Factors such as dynamics leading to formation, patterns of growth, evolution, and, in some cases, demise will be examined as well. The presentation will also describe the place and relationship of the ideal entity within existing and future solar innovation clusters.

The current status of the United States' competitive advantage will be discussed by comparing emerging and established regional solar innovation capabilities. A framework will be offered to provide government and industry decision-makers with an approach that can be implemented immediately to build a global competitive advantage.

This research was funded by the US Department of Energy.
