Hi Erwin. Thanks for your comment. Could you give an example of such a higher level structure? I am not sure what you mean. And have you asked Alex why? Regards, Diderik
I love the Business Model Canvas for its simplicity and capture of the essence in one single view. And just as you (in your post) I had the idea of a mind map variation.
This is the result:
These are the main differences from the original:
Reasons I came to the idea to create this variation:
Hope this brings you to new ideas and I'm curious to find out what you think of it.
All the best,
When I last spoke to my former boss, she indicated they had begun work, or were well along on 90% of the projects that were identified in the strategy maps and the new business model. The new business model and the service structure was being incorporated into their key strategic documentation. The service structure was being used as the basis for business process re-engineering. They were parsing the contracting process based on the four levels of complexity in the classification structure we brought forward in the new business model, and were moving to optimize the processes for each of the levels of complexity.
There was quite a fallout from the 18 months we worked on the new business model.
Thanks for your answer, hope you get their permission to post it.
The previous presentation you sent is very helpful as well. I wonder how are they doing now. Did they get to implement all your recommendations?
Unfortunately I cannot share the BM for the economic organization without their permission, and they prefer to keep in in-house for now. I will send a request for permission to share.
The business model for the procurement organization I have shared before with their permission, but it has been a while so I have repeated here. The deck shows you the as-is business model, the challenges we addressed in the to-be business model, the proposed changes and the expected benefits. We follow that pattern for number of innovations to the business model.
Forgot you can't post documents directly in a blog, so here's the link to the previous posting:
Acquisitions Business Model
Mike, your latest work seems very practical. In the case of the economic agency, could you share some of the outcomes of the bussiness model you developed? I am planning to identify a model for a Dental Clinic, thus I will need some insights!!
Seems not much different from my thoughts, good point that you may want to do both versions. The first version is kind of the model where you put all together. Good to add that you keep this high-level. The second version is indeed separate models, but in my case only for the infrastructure side, so with a shared value proposition and customer side. Whether or not you can do the latter may depend upon the specific situation. That is why I for my example choose for pure bundling, this makes it a bit more extreme and simpler.
How I have handled bundled business models to date, is to develop the higher level business model that summarizes the all the elements of the various 'business lines' in one diagram. That obviously necessitates the conversation being at a fairly high level. Then build out an individual canvas for each of the business lines - or the business line that is of particular concern.
In the case of the economic agency, the overall canvas reflected their multiple business lines but we detailed a business canvas for only the grants and contributions business. For the acquisitions (procurement) group we detailed only the procurement related business of the two separate business lines. We were a little disappointed in that we could have further broken down the procurement business into two patterns - platform for the bimodal procurement and solutions for the regular and complex procurement. We left that as a recommendation to the senior management.
In both cases we looked at the different businesses within the organization from a 'nested' perspective rather than building a single view to cover multiple businesses.
