Abstract. Generativity refers to the ability of a system to spark unbounded growth. This talk analyzes the relationship between generativity and growth in the context of digital platforms that have been opened up for outside developers that work side-by-side with corporate developers. We call this focal phenomenon the extended core. Through an analysis of four e-commerce platforms, we find that these platform’s extended core has exhibited mostly superlinear growth patterns, that the relationship between the generative discussions regarding the platform and platform growth is mediated through two generativity pathways: an internal generativity mechanism limiting contributions to privileged internal developers and an external generativity pathway creating forks and later crossing back the organizational boundary by resubmitting modified changes to the extended core. We further illustrate the generativity-enabling collaboration networks and their evolution using one detailed case example.  The results shed new light on generativity in the context of companies opening up an internal platform to an external digital platform.
