Use Design Thinking to Reinvent Your Life and Carrier Path

 

"The business model has always been an important part of doing business, but recently the designing of businesses got a new urgency. It is the advance of startups, quickly changing markets, and evolving technological possibilities that make it ever more important to develop innovative business models and rethink traditional ones. These circumstances shorten the time that old business models can stay viable. Today there are technological opportunities that enable lean implementation of business models and make them change too fast for the long cycles of traditional R&D.

Business Design provides the tools and methods to develop and test a business model. At the same time it makes the difference between a service that is just a marketing stunt and one that is a sustainable business."

"Business Design

  1. is the application of design methods and processes on the development and innovation of business models.

  2. is about value creation and value capturing.

  3. transforms a value proposition into real business value.

  4. making sense of new value creation by thinking in relations."
