How to Describe and Improve your Business Model to Compete Better
This manual is a first simple attempt to explain how social enterprise practitioners can manipulate business models in practice to better fit their needs. In a step by step approach we introduce readers to the concept of business models. We particularly aim at helping SMEs describe and improve their business model to better compete.
This business model manual will allow us to:
- Draw the big picture of our business model and see how all the parts of it fit together
- Achieve higher quality discussions among our management teams because we have created a common and visual language to talk about business models
- Better reflect on the organizational structures that support our business model, such as business process models and roles and responsibilities among our employees
- Reflect on business model innovation in a more structured way to come up with sustainable competitive advantages
