Alex Osterwalder & Tendayi Viki on Designing Breakthrough Business Models

 

In this interactive session, Alex and Tendayi work with a real life BoS Conference attendee (the guys from PDQ.com) to show how to: evaluate your portfolio of existing innovations,  evaluate your existing business model; understand its strengths and weaknesses; then use the right questions to redesign a breakthrough business model. They demonstrate how to use nine business model questions to reinvent your business as you consider the strategic shifts in your environment.

You will learn how to:

  • Distinguish between efficiency, sustaining and transformative innovations.
  • Review an existing business model using the right questions.
  • Redesign the business model with breakthrough ideas.
