This talk seeks to update the research work conducted by the Cambridge Institute for Manufacturing in the last ten year and to gain more feedbacks and discussions towards the industrial ecosystems. Industrial systems including manufacturing industries have been experiencing dramatic transformations from classical firm based tradition towards more adaptable and iterative networks or even ecosystems. Industrial managers and public policy makers have realized that there is an urgent demand to understand the systemsand ecosystems as well as their relationships. In the talk and discussions, the following three questions will be explored and further debated: 1) Why do more and more people have interests about business or industrial ecosystems? 2) How can we better describe and understand business ecosystems? 3)What could the concept and theory of business ecosystem offer to management studies?
