Traditional Business Plans and Strategic Plans are terminally ill. Their death is certain. Traditional Business and Strategic Plans do not focus on solving customers' toughest problems as well as are boring, expensive, and difficult to update. Many businesses especially startups are moving away from traditional business/strategic plans to one-page tools. However, one-page tools to date are inadequate for planning and managing businesses. The one-page tools are simply not comprehensive, versatile, or scalable enough.

This presentation introduces a new visual tool, the One-page Business Ecosystem Story that eliminates all the pain and problems of businesss/strategic plans. The One-page Business Ecosystem Story can also be used for creating, organizing, managing, evaluating, and sharing business stories.
