Every now and then, entrepreneurs in the “LeanStartupSphere” pop a question the essence of which is as follows: “Business Model Canvas (BMC) vs. Lean Canvas (LC): Which tool do you prefer to document, test, present, and manage your business model?”
According to Ash Maurya, who adapted Alexander Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas, to produce the Lean Canvas, his goal was to make the Business Model Canvas “as actionable as possible…

Today, business problems, opportunities, and risks are increasingly seen through the lens of a business model.

That's why I developed Personas for IPad, an app that will help you to iterate through your Customer Discovery process. State your customer hypothesis in a simple LeanUX…Continue

As I was reading the Canvas chapter (my 1st read:), this morning, I made a note to myself to re-draw the canvas in 3-layers:
1. KP + KA/KR
2. VP + CH/CR + CS
3. CS + CR

I was relaxing at home recently and, in my usual channel flipping state of mind, came across the program Dragon's Den. For those of you not familiar with it; a group of venture capitalist investors (usually 3-4) form a panel and entrepreneurs are brought before them with their business ideas and products/services. If the 'contestants' are capable of convincing the VCs, they can walk away with some very serious funding. Apparently this show is done in a number of countries, I think having…Continue
In my last Blog post, I was (and I continue) looking for some way of measuring "business value" for a Crown corporation at both the strategic (portfolio) and project levels of analysis.
