Business Modelling Theory

We will give you the background on what a business model is and talk about why business modelling is important. We will also go through the two most popular tools for business modelling:

  • Business Model Canvas
  • Lean Canvas

The training takes you through each of the blocks of the two tools and explains the structure and relationships of the canvasses. We also compare the tools conceptually and discuss which tool is preferable in different settings. 

Business Modelling Case

We take you through the details of mapping AirBnB's business model both to the Business Model Canvas and the Lean Canvas. Afterwards, we compare the two tools again to see how they differ in a practical setting.

In the mapping exercise, we use ready-made stickers for canvasses that you can download and use as a Business Modelling Facilitator.

Running Business Modelling Workshop

Next we take you through how to organize an awesome Business Modelling workshop. With BMFT, you get everything you need to run a workshop using both Business Model Canvas and Lean Canvas.

We have even prepared two sets of slides for you:

  • Business Model Workshop slides using the Business Model Canvas
  • Business Model Workshop slides using the Lean Canvas

As with all the other assets, the slides are free for you to download, change and use as you wish.

Delivering remote

We provide you with insights and discussions on how to deliver a Business Modelling Workshop 100% remote, complete with an example of how to do a sticker exercise using free tools. 

Making it yours!

Use Business Modelling Facilitator Training as a lego block. Combine it with your favorite tools, zoom in on each canvas block or zoom out on the wider context. Perhaps you should extend it with a Playing Lean workshop.

We also provide advice for adapting the Business Modelling Workshop to various settings, whether you're an intrapreneur, a coach or an educator.
