I started to write out my thoughts on how companies can use BM Generation/BM Innovation to better and continuously adapt themselves to the ecosystem they are part of.
Like to share these thoughts here as well, because this hub I believe is most likely to provide the best feedback/criticism to those post and thoughts.
Here's Eureka! That's it!!
(and more to come shortly)

Ever wanted to draw lines and arrows within the Business Model Canvas to indicate interactions among the various players in a value network?
The Institute for Strategic Innovation in collaboration with academics at Georgia State University (USA), companies, and consultants has developed a new tool called the Value Exchange Mapping (VEM) System. VEM works with the Business Model Canvas to provide a kind of “stereo vision” with respect to the business…Continue

"The Lean Startup" by Eric Ries is one of the most useful books any entrepreneur, startup, or established business could get. I regard "The Lean Startup" book as the bible on continuous innovation. However, many entrepreneurs, startups, and established businesses are struggling to translate ideas, concepts, and principles of the Lean Startup Method into practice. The high rate of failure of startups continues while the Lean…Continue

Developed by Robert Kaplan and David Norton in the 1990s, the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) is the most widely used tool for managing the performance of a business. The BSC is used by the majority of companies in the Fortune 1000 as well as by many small and medium-scale businesses. The BSC focuses on managing a chain or “stream” of performance metrics rather than the output or traditional singular financial metric of profit.
In the presentation…

I work as a product manager for a Mobile Network Operator. I am about to start a strategy development piece of work around Mobile data/internet, obviously something that is now a key revenue generator for Mobile Network Operators. Although I know the business model innovation methodology is used analysing an organisation as a whole, I feel it could quite easily apply to part of the business, in this case Mobile Data. Do you have a view on this at all?
The Business Model Canvas can be considered as a graphic organizer (high level TreeMap) that shows 9 tessellated elements, tiles, or “building blocks” of an archetypal business model. Since the 2009 publication of Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur’s “Business Model Generation” book, use and popularity of the Business Model Canvas (BMC) have surged worldwide.
The BMC is enthusiastically used by entrepreneurs,…

A few days ago, I posted a presentation: "Why the Business Model Canvas is Good But Not Great." In my view, the traditional Business Model Canvas (BMC) can be made "greater" by converting it to a Business Model Jigsaw Game which is a visual gaming platform for presenting business model tools as well as problem solving, planning, and innovation methodologies.
The presentation below contains some ideas that focus on the main components…
In a one-page graphic that could be accessed from the weblink below, I take a critical look at the Business Model Canvas.

A year or so ago, I know I could more easily find BMC's in other languages than English. Though I'm an English speaker (native), I work in Europe and having a "centralized" place where you can find BMG tools like the Value Proposition Map, BMC, etc. in numerous languages would really be time saving and helpful.
Is there anyway someone could suggest that on the BMG site>Tools or even here in the Forum there was a link to such a place?
For example, I'm having a…Continue

Hi everyone, I'm Anna, marketer, community manager, event organizer and COO of university business incubator. Due to my activity, I'm working on business models a lot – sometimes personally, sometimes with my colleagues and partners, sometimes I consult startups. Recently I realized that the most convenient way to work on business model is to combine offline and online tools – it allows to talk face to face, then back to the results and collaborate. The online tool I and my…Continue

Gamification is a two-edged sword. Gamification represents both danger and opportunity. But first, what is “gamification”?
According to IT Research and Advisory firm, Gartner, “Gamification is the use of game design and game mechanics to engage a target audience to change behaviors, learn new skills or engage in innovation.” For me, gamification involves the seamless use of game strategies, tactics, and tools to entertainingly…

About a week ago, the startup world got ablaze from reading Steve Blank’s blog post, “A New Way to Look at Competitors.” In the blog post, Blank notes that the traditional Competitive Graph – which focuses on differentiating offerings of “Our Company” vs. “Our Competitors” - is “inappropriate for startups or existing companies creating new markets.” Blank goes on to offer a Petal Diagram which places a given company (startup) in…Continue

There’s only one answer as to why an object dies. My hypothesis is that living organisms die or become extinct when their supersystems (ecosystems) fail to create and manage Red Ocean Disruption teams that rapidly discover and solve BUMPs. In simple terms, organisms die because of “non-problem solving.” The late science philosopher, Karl Popper, expressed this point succinctly when he said, “All life is problem solving.” Popper…Continue
