The Business Model Canvas course

Find new ways for your organisation to create value.

A business model describes what an organisation does, and how it creates value. Even if your organisation doesn't have to publish its business model (and some do), it's essential to know what yours is. The Business Model Canvas is a tool for describing existing business models and creating new ones.
