Intruiging deck: Zoomable Project Canvas for Business Model Improvement and Disruption – vdd university by Rod King

There is an emerging school of thought which advocates that startups should ‘pitch’ their business models rather than business plans. Accordingly, startups should present their business model using a one-page business model map such as the Business Model Canvas. Prominent proponents of this school of thought include Steve Blank, Alex Osterwalder, and Nathan Furr. This “Business Model-School of Thought” has an ongoing battle with the “Business Plan-School of Thought.” The war cry of the Business Model-School of Thought is “Burn your business plan.


My point of view: A deck that contains very fine insights how to lead!

Fieldstudio social design methods menu by Luciy Kimbell and Joe Julier

[slideshare id=15451201&doc=fieldstudiosocialdesignmethodsmenu-121202085739-phpapp02]

Written and edited by Lucy Kimbell and Joe Julier, it is a resource for social innovators and entrepreneurs who want to use approaches based in design and ethnography.

Sharing this menu is an intervention into current debates about the extent to which toolkits can really help communicate practices based in design and ethnography and make them available to non-specialists. Other recent toolkits and resources to support design and innovation include Frog Design’s Collective Action Toolkit, and NESTA’s Prototyping Framework, and IDEO’s Human Centred Design Toolkit, as well as other resources which focus more on products such as the d-school’s Bootcamp Bootleg.

Where the Social Design Methods Menu is distinctive is
– its combination of approaches from design, management and the social sciences
– its testing and iterating in the field in particular through teaching MBA students at Said Business School as well as social innovators and entrepeneurs
– its view that a toolkit probably can’t do much on its own, without new behaviours, cognitive frameworks and new values, and an attention to leadership and collective action, accompanied by a recognition that using tools changes the user and vice versa

This document is in perpetual beta – we welcome feedback and may eventually release a future version, should resources allow. In the meantime please share with us your uses and modifications and criticisms.

Service Design Breakfast – How to fail in service design – Reima Rönnholm, Palmu

n Reima’s experience, designing services is critically dependent on testing out the design ideas with real customers. Even the best of ideas of ten fail when exposed to customers. The single most critical outcome of the experimentation is the understanding of what is the real problem that needs to be solved. Once the real problem has been identified, the solution often becomes straightforward.
