"Be Not Afraid of Greatness,
Some Men Are Born Great,
Some Achieve Greatness, and
Some Have Greatness Thrust Upon Them."

The Business Model Canvas, as described in Business Model Generation by Osterwalder and Pigneur (2010)
, presents an easy and general usable business model framework. I have been working on expanding the Business Model Canvas to describe and include the Environmental impact factor of a Business Model.
This canvas does not change the core concepts or the language of Business Model Generation, but extends the canvas and introduces…

This morning Alex and I picked up Alan Smith and Mike Overdijk at the hotel at the lake. Unfortunately it is raining... Well, that makes us working. Nobody slept very well last night. I guess because it will be a busy and exciting day. A lot to do.
Finally we have the whole team together today! As Alan is based in London, Yves and Alex in Lausanne and Mike and myself in Amsterdam it is not easy to meet up. And everyone has a busy schedule as well... Writing,… Continue

Moodboard & Feedback time!

Check out the moodboards, and… Continue

Dearfellow Business Model Hubbers,
I'd like to share my intentions for collaboration and a little background on myself with you all!!
Why I'm interested
I see an incredible design opportunity here. We've all heard of many design relationships that degrade to "I think people would like this..." with clients/designers guessing at what people would really like. It's a he-said-she-said situation. Here, we've got a group of intelligent people to not only give a… Continue

Today, Alex, Alan (The Movement) and myself got together for our first session about the design and production of the book. Exciting that we are working on this with Alan who is bringing the right competences in. At the very moment we are exploring the various design possibilities based on research Alex did in the market and the bookshops. What is a nice design? What is not? What do I like? What I don't? Alan is guiding us through the process... We wanted to share this with you "live" on the… Continue
