... where visionaries, game changers, and challengers discuss business models
I am working on a curriculum piece (part of a larger course focusing on social entrepreneurship) about business models.
The target audience will be primarily be non-business students/adult learners. The context is a course in human-centered design.
Any recommendations for existing case studies that could be used in a classroom setting that ties in nicely with the Business Model Generation book.
Because it is for a class, ideally it would a "teaching/learning" case study.
All ideas are welcome.
I used this introduction: http://www.slideshare.net/mientje12/120605-mw-bm-business-model-cha...
and this hand-out: http://www.slideshare.net/fullscreen/mientje12/120605-mw-hand-out-b...
We had a great time and came up with some very inspiring ideas. Thanks for your ideas!
John, I am from Brazil. Me and a couple friends are trying to develop a course that teachs business models and show people that they can get over life as a mechanical thing and start doing something. But we are gatering some material together and searching for tips and examples to teach in classes such as exercises, examples, and stuff like that. Could you help me where to find those things?? Tks a lot
Hi John. Are you looking for cases, or case studies that are already written?
I'm not sure about case studies, but Khan Academy (http://www.khanacademy.org/) is an interesting case that can be used to explain the Canvas (i.e. the 9 building blocks), as well as some patterns (such as Long Tail and Multi-Sided Platform).
Would love to see your example - it sounds like a fun and creative introduction.
Maybe you would like to create a Fiddle (http://bmfiddle.com) and share the link with other BMG members here.
Recently, I held a business modeling seminar for startup companies which participated in commercialization of technology given by innopolis in Daeduk Research Park in Korea.
Although many of participants do not know business model canvas, they tried to understand and apply to their business.
After a seminar, I recieved several e-mails for helping their business model.
I would love to connect with you on your seminar for startups to see how you integrated the Canvas content
As I understand, since the Canvas content is "open-source" it can be used in work we do for companies with the credit being given back to their site
Can you or anyone confirm?
I'l love to see if the Canvas content exists in a PowerPoint format that can be delivered in a seminar training format.
Thanks in advance!
Try Confucius story, because the "teaching/learning" method is similar to Confucius story. and Taoism, it is about how to improve our knowledge.
focusing on individual improvement first.
then...using facebook as example, to see how them build up the social platform.
just an ideas...
