Experiencing innovation

Joint action creates experiences. The same holds true for the participants in our workshops. Innovation is a team sport; hence it is crucial that the individual characters play well together, know the rules, master the methods and pursue a common goal.

Business model design

Developing new business models

We view business model design or business model innovation as a set of methods and tools for helping businesses and start-up teams develop new products, services and business models in a structured manner.

Our trainings are conducted in the interactive workshop format. In them, you will discover a toolbox that you can put to use right away in your daily work routine.

Exemplary structure of the training:

Day 1:

  • Digitalization: which technologies and business models are fundamentally changing the industry
  • Business Model Canvas - from the technology to the business model: holistic, visual thinking and development of ideas in mixed teams
  • Design thinking as a starting point for innovation: gaining a better understanding of clients' wishes, problems and needs

Tag 2

  • Value Proposition Canvas – designing unique value propositions
  • Environmental analysis: which external factors influence our business?
  • Development of minimum viable products
  • Obtaining client feedback and validating hypotheses

We will gladly adapt the contents of the inhouse-trainings to the respective requirements and issues of our clients.
