A primer on the business model canvas

This is a project I have had on the back burner for quite a while. Glad to finally have it in a shareable format.

The link below is to a slideshare posting of the primer. In the document I look at each of the building blocks, as well as the best practices and ground rules taught by Alexander in the masterclass.…

Leading a two-day masterclass in London

Posted on May 6, 2014 at 11:30pm 2 Comments

Hi all;

July 3 & 4 I will be in London, UK to deliver a two day Business Model Generation masterclass partnering with Gabrielle Benefied of Evolve Beyond.

This will be the first time we have had a chance to partner on a workshop since we participated in the BMG certified trainer course with Alexander Osterwalder in Vienna last fall. I am located in Ottawa, Canada and Gabrielle is in London. We are excited to be able to combine our knowledge and experience and share that…

Report on the Train the Trainer event in Vienna

Posted on October 30, 2013 at 10:00pm 5 Comments

Well, I finally got some sit down time to write about the 2-day Train-the-Trainer session I attended. It’s been a fantastic week here in Vienna (we threw in some vacation time as well) and we have worn ourselves to a frazzle.

The Train-the-Trainer (herein known as TtT) session was organized by Strategyzer, Alex’s company behind all the workings of Business Model Generation and the arm that is working on tools. The concept was to bring together a cohort of BMG experts from around the…

Welcome to the group Mike!

Mike, thank you for joining the group. I hope to collaborate with you and others on how CRM strategy impacts the entire canvas. My book, CRM to the People: Speaking Frankly About Customer Relationship Management is available on Amazon. However, I am of the thinking that my "knowledge is a drop, and my ignorance an ocean". Looking forward to learning from everyone in the hub.

Dear Mike,

It would be a pleasure and honour to be part of the team to revise the business model tools kit being translated  into spanish. I  am  Venezuelan (spanish mother tongue). I have been using Business model generation canvas for sometime, firstly on the transnational company in which have I been working for 10 years and the last years I have been working as Innovation Manager. On ther other hand; I am writting a book about strategies to solve venezuelan´s  problems  and one of my tools is the  Canvas in order to illustrate  proposals in easy way such as for private enterpreneurship , social and politic segments. Regards Lacides

Hi Mike,

My pleasure. Next time hopefully in person.

Hey Mike thx for adding.. I like the new interface of the businessmodelhub..great going!

Hi Mike, thanks for the suggestions! It's funny actually because I ordered Gamestorming this morning so that gives me hope that it was money well spent.

 

I haven't heard of the Lean Launchpad before but it looks like a great resource so thanks for that. I think I'll start a discussion and see if anyone on this site has any ideas

 

I actually had the idea to do this yesterday when I was re-reading BMG. I thought about how that book was crowdsourced from this community so I thought I could crowdsource some of the content of the Kenyan business design course in the same way if it's allowed...?

 

Thanks again.

Mike, Great questions. In terms of leading the workshop, we would be facilitating the event and discussion (http://www.creativerealities.com). We would have to talk through things a bit more, as I imagine that leading people through exercises like these is part of what you do, and we'd be looking for you to participate in a bit of different way. As for your second question, certainly all travel costs would be paid, and we can discuss other compensation if appropriate. I should know a bit more on Friday. Next step for us would be to talk briefly to answer more questions and get a feel for each other. Could do that tomorrow, Friday or early next week if you're interested. Let me know.

Cheers,

David

Mike,

Thanks for the response. What we'd be looking for is someone facile in business model thinking to join us in a workshop, as a participant, to listen to information presented about the future of their industry -- what will be different, what competencies will be needed, what the landscape will even look like (as it is predicted to be quite different) -- and then offer potential elements of new business models to take advantage of this future. I'm heading off for the day but will review your page a bit more tomorrow. Let me know if you're still interested.

Cheers,

David

Hi Mike,

 

I'm doing part time projects - research. The most recent of which brought about generating more sales thru internet marketing. I'm still in the baby steps process of business model generation and testing the waters. The project is in process and it's a long way to go. I can say, from most of the projects I've handled I find my passion here - generating business. I've just received the copy of the book and reading the first few pages when I signed up here. And wow! this is worthwhile online platform as this is socialization blended with intellectual discussion. I'm excited to collaborate with everyone in sharing knowledge.

 

Cheers,

 

Ania
