Reviews Business Model Generation

  • Marko Savić
    Why is this book worth reading for? 1. Because it has a great design. 2. Because it was published as a innovative business model.3. Because it can easily change your life.If you don't believe me, read this review.I wouldn't know exactly if there is a definition in a book, but Wikipedia says business model describes the rationale of how an organization creates, delivers, and captures value (economic, social, or other forms of value). From the expe...

    The subtitle of this book says "A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers". I'm sorry but I have to completely disagree. This is "A Handbook by Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers" and, in my opinion, "A Handbook for your boring conservative boss, the neighbourhood bakery selling the same old loafs of bread in the same shop for 30 years, the mayor of your incredibly dull town and for your parents". In other words, it make...

    Posted on my book blog.A book on business model innovation and how important that is for businesses n today's economic and technological climate. I was torn between giving this book 3 or 4 stars. On one hand, it's a visually beautiful book which introduces some thought-provoking and useful tools, like the Business Model Canvas. On the other hand, for most subsequent chapters I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over again, with sligh...

    Business Model Generation is one of my first readings on economics. (In my defense, I have prior experience with modeling in general, and some experience with economic models in comp.sci. and the market of distributed computing systems.) This book turned out to be a mixed blessing. On the positive side, it's an easy-to-grasp, well-structured, richly illustrated book on the concepts, patterns, and processes that underlie the generation and use of ...

    This book sometimes suffers a bit from style over substance. Although a nice change from regular business books, the graphic design comes across as too eager to look trendy, and many of the illustrations aren't as illuminating as they first seem. Also, the tone of voice occasionally annoyed me with its love for buzzwords. Finally, in all honesty, it gets a bit boring and too shallow towards the end. However, the book did provide me with a useful ...

    The business model canvass is very popular in startup circles, however, after reading the book, a lot of people are doing it wrong or have admittedly repurposed the canvass to into how they do business.I'm sure other ideas surrounding the development of a business model canvass, Ash Maurya has a completely different approach that works with his commitment to rapid MVP development and testing, are useful but they are very different than what's pos...

    The book "Business Model Generation" can easily be called a "bible", a real reference book for innovators and entrepreneurs. Author Alexander Osterwalder together with 470 co-authors created a masterpiece. All information in the book revolves around the business model scheme, which consists of nine structural blocks:- consumer segments- value propositions- sales channels- relationship with customers- revenue streams- key resources- key activities...

    Books like this help me realize that you can go very deep into business model generation and business strategy. This is a great in-depth guide to understanding one of the best business model tools out there: The Business Model Canvas.It takes common design principles like storytelling and prototyping and brings that to business model generation. The book is very nicely designed and also offers a range of helpful tips on business strategy. The SWO...
  • Tammy Whitten
    This book came highly recommended at a business workshop I attended. The way I interpreted the title and the recommendation, I anticipated a book full of charts with different business models to skim over and select the one that fit your vision.For instance, if you had this many employees in your vision, or this many products, then these are some models mapped out for you to see how they flowed.That was not what this book was at all. While I enjo...

    Reading In Progress: So far a lot of great book design with pages with awful book design. Seriously some of us have dyslexia, others might have problem with low contrast. Seriously people inaccessible design is BAD design.Finished: I wanted to love this book, or at least like it. Whoever said that this book has great design is THE liar (~ableist asshole ~ knows shit about what good design is). Sans serif fonts for long texts? What the hell! Photo...

    I've had this book on my shelf and after mowing it down in 24hrs, have to admit it's one of the better entrepreneurship books I've read that deserves to be up there with lean startup and blue ocean strategy. In hindsight, this would have been useful to read before I started my own business, let alone for completing business model canvasses in the three entrepreneurship classes that I bought it for.Business Model CanvasCS - Customer SegmentsMass M...

    Reduces business to four essential components namely; offer, infrastructure, financial viability and customer interface. These components are spread out on a big picture visual canvas called "The business model canvas" which enables us to see crucial connections and relationships within the business. This book also incorporates classic strategic management tools like PEST analysis and SWOT analysis to further enhance the value of this book. This ...
  • Mark M. Whelan
    I recently completed the design thinking course at Stanford and was compelled to read this after seeing the author there. It's a summary of the design thinking decision process in relation to all business models. An intuitive and inspiring examination which is easily actionable after a single read.The overall approach appears to borrow heavily from IDEO; however, doesn't appear to sufficiently credit them..nevertheless, it's quite simply...brilli...

    I absolutely love this elegant workbook – both its design and the ideas. It takes the nine pieces of a business model – customer segments, value propositions, channels, customer relationships, revenue streams, key resources, key activities, key partnerships, and cost structure – and gives you ideas, questions, activities and examples to generate ideas in each area. Work through this book if you’re thinking about starting a business and th...

    A useful induction into business models, how they're built and the disciplines necessary to be able to create and implement one.
  • Joey Spinella
    As a product manager, it's helpful to think not just about a differentiated product, but about how you are creating an initiative that enables your business to be successful. While most business books only have one good idea, this book has two! 1. build a canvas of your business to understand how all the parts fit together (customer, sales channel, income, value proposition, key activities, key resources, partners, expenses). 2. understand severa...
  • Jonas Hau
    Describes and visualises many concepts and tools that can be deadly important. Especially for incumbent firms. They need the courage to continually review their business model(s) and strategy, to widely seek inspiration for new business model and test them through prototyping etc. This book can seem very simple, but my impression is that you can read it on different layers of depth depending on your general knowledge of this theoretical space.
  • Mike Moore
    There's lots of good advice here, though as a product it's over-designed in the way some solutions are over-engineered. This is neither a book nor a slide deck, but something in between. It's pretty, sits well on a coffee table, and provides a nice extended illustration for the HBR article "Reinventing your Business Model".
  • Pallav
    Very good book if you want to understand the very basics of a business model. Great canvas to implement.
  • Bader
    كتاب ثري يحتوي على الكثير من الوسائل والقوالب المساعدة لأصحاب الأعمال. قراءته بالعربي مزعجة بعض الشيء.
