"Good points - I think the differences in understanding/viewpoints would largely disappear if the VP and CS (which is empty) items are addressed in detail first. This would move us from a very generic "web agency" to a more specific…"

"Okay, I can certainly agree the items you mention are important. Where we differ is in the idea of action and strategy. Yes the activities may be reflected in your KA area, but the overall strategy should be included in CR, particularly for startups…"

"CR does involve acquisition/retention however I see that as an activity for most (all?) businesses. For CR in a web agency I'd look at the general ideas from BMG as a starting point: Personal assistance Dedicated Personal…"

"Hi Johan  I don't quite agree with your comment on CR not involving acquisition / retention. I believe more than anything else the CRM component is about the strategies the business uses to attract customers, generate revenues and retain…"

"Looking a your model some more: VP - knowledge of trends/specific segments? CR is not aquisition/retention - that is one of your KA CH you should be using other channels such as social media (appropriately - not just making a FB page) and adding…"

"I've been thinking about this as well - just some thoughts: The model Marthijn describes is used in a number of areas - most notably http://99designs.com where designers bid for your work. 99designs was not well received by many designers as…"

"Hi Marthijn, Thanks for the link, I'll definitely go check it out! I actually speak Afrikaans, so I could decode that bit of Dutch in the title ;)"

"Hi Emile,  In the Netherlands we have an example of a innovative approach for design development. It is a multi sided platform for designers and people/companies in need for design. It works like this. You can start a competition for the…"

Can the traditional design and website development agency business model be innovated?

The traditional design and website development agency business model is relatively established. Your KPs are other creative and technical resources, your KAs are designing and development, your KR are talent, your VPs are creative work and websites, your CR is acquisition and retention, your CHs are your agency website and word of mouth, your R$ design and website payments and your C$ salaries.Are there any ways in which this traditional model can be innovated?See More

Emile Silvis replied to John Rumery's discussion Case studies for teaching business models generation
"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…"

Emile Silvis replied to Yannick Mériguet's discussion Confusion in Business Model Canvas: Customers or Partners

Emile Silvis replied to Modesta's discussion difference between Long tail and Multi-sided platforms?
"Hi Modesta. Yup, I agree with you that they do overlap, but that's only because BMC gives us a standardised vocabulary to speak about business models. They differ primarily in terms of their foci. The Long Tail and Multi-Sided Platform…"
