How do you design products or services that people really want? 


How do you define the value of your departmental program and get noticed inside a large organization? 

How do you develop a strategy to repeat your success time and again, rapidly, effectively and efficiently?


The goal of our Business Model Design workshop is to help you propose your business value and a viable cost/ revenue model in a simple way.  You'll inspire people without having to write a clunky business plan that few want to read.  You'll determine your market and the most efficient routes to getting there and  you'll know how to build the right team to get it done.  You can use the process time and again to repeat your success and do it regardless of subject matter area or industry.

Business Model Design is a method of creating remarkable, transformative value from messy, complex challenges.  We use well known business design tools (below) and borrow techniques from the software industry - using methods like agile, lean, sprints - and apply them to business programs.  We present ideas visually, mapping out those who are impacted - or can impact - your work, so that you can quickly get a full sense of the scope and reach of your business or program.  Is everyone on this map engaged as a stakeholder?  Can you clearly outline the value of your work to your various audiences?  Does your planning allow for work requests coming in from unexpected areas?  How do you identify the people you'll need as 'radical collaborators' to build a broader support base?  How do you build your personal 'system' to wow your audiences repeatedly?  We'll help you describe your business on one-page so that people will literally see your value.

Our Business Model Design approach uses some well known tools, blended with design thinking-based methods and twenty years' experience working with customers.  ​
