How to use the Business Model Canvas: learn about this strategic management and lean start-up framework and how to apply it

Whether you are starting a business from scratch or growing an existing business you are juggling a complex range of ideas, resources, activities and options as you construct your plans.

Approaches have developed over the last decade that enable you to make sense of this complexity in a more straightforward and disciplined way. This helps you to better understand how your business model might create value and also helps identify your riskiest assumptions before you implement your plan.

The Business Model Canvas (BMC) is one of these tools; perhaps the most powerful and most accessible. It can help you ensure that your product or service fits with what customers value and need, before significant investment of your hard earned cash and resources.

This webinar will cover:

  • How the BMC works to help you better understand the options you have in delivering what you customer values
  • How the BMC enables you to test your ideas to adapt and improve your model over time
  • Key insights, advice and tips on using the BMC in your wider strategy and business discussions or drives your research and testing
  • Q&A session

Who Should Attend?

Business owners, managers or leaders who wish to better understand how their organisations create value and how to use that to drive planning and make better decisions.

This webinar is aimed at SMEs. Please note that preference will be given to businesses based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire for this webinar.
