... 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.
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.
