Learn how to use the Business Model Canvas while modeling your current business project
12:00pm - 5:00pm
Do you have a great idea for a business, a product or a service, that you would like to brainstorm, or your current business model is loosing momentum? Using a revolutionary new technique, you structure the business model on one page and have the bones of a business plan that previously took 30 pages and months to write. Welcome to the Business Model Canvas, a deceptively powerful business-model planning tool designed by academics Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur.
Learn the basic techniques of constructing a business model canvas and use it to visually communicate and brainstorm your business ideas.
Forget a 40-page business plan if you’re launching a start-up venture with low fixed costs. Use the Canvas to write a one-page business model to see if the idea has legs, and take a lean entrepreneurship approach where you discover customers and the best business model in real time in the market.
Under traditional business-plan thinking, you spent weeks or months writing one business plan for one idea. Using the Business Model Canvas, you can sketch and develop a portfolio of business models in minutes or hours, instead of spending weeks or months writing one business plan for one idea.
Intuitively understand and illustrate the front stage of your business, where it drives value and reaches and makes money from customers, and the back stage or what is required to make the front stage possible

Your business launch is an experiment, not a final event
Learn how to filter your business models through prototyping and testing feasibility, viability and desirability
9:00am - 4:00pm
When making big decisions about your business you cannot afford to rush to full implementation. Performing “live” experiments with your ideas or company can be risky and expensive.
During this full day workshop, you will learn prototyping and testing the feasibility, viability and desirability of your alternative business models.
Prototyping and testing helps you to experiment with alternative business models before you put them into action. You need to insure that your hypothesizes about your business are true and tested in the real world.
Rapid prototyping and testing will also help you to take your business model through many iteration of development towards further scaling or pivoting until you filter your options to the one you find most optimized for implementing.

Brands that have strong experiences strive to understand experience as an ongoing commitment, and to think holistically across the varied journeys their people—customers, partners and employees—have with their brands. Often, they must assess hundreds of touchpoints within a given area of experience.

And with so few truly differentiated experiences, you will have a huge opportunity in this workshop to stand out and be special through customer experience innovation.
