Last months I was discussing with my syster and her husband about business models for enterprises, we are very interesting in knowing how some companies get success stories and outcomes just re-inventing their actitivities. The result was the reading of some books about the generation of business models I know some of them that I would like to leave here the “reference” book:
- Business Model Generation: A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers. This book has been written by Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Peigner. It clearly states some points in which companies should be focused to improve their competivity and results. It also includes examples of regeneration of business models and taking into account the current economic situation I consider it should be considered as “the bible” for entrepreneurs.
Apart from the “business” view of this book other efforts have emerged applying this approach to other contexts, for instance to check your career and value as individual. The BusinessModelYou community has created a specific book entitled as “Business Model You: A One-Page Method For Reinventing Your Career” by Timothy Clark, Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur. This book is not just for re-inventing your career but to asses your value! There are also a lot of tools to create your own canvas (the key-piece to create your business model.
I firmly believe this technique is the key to identify your talent, value and potential that is why I strongly encourage you to download a template and create “Your Own Business Model”. I leave here my own business model.
If you have any doubt please do not hesitate to ask me!
We are human-being, the value is our talent not hours!
