"Business Model Hacking (BMH)" refers to a multilevel mapping methodology that uses the unit of analysis of a business model to rapidly discover and eliminate pain in the lifecycle of any system, project, and/or business model. The approach of Business Model Hacking can be applied to projects in the public and private sectors as well as non-governmental organizations and society in general. The current program of "Hacking for Defense (H4D)," which is pioneered at Stanford University can be regarded as a basic instance of Business Model Hacking that uses the Mission Model Canvas (Business Model Canvas) and Value Proposition Canvas within the framework of the Lean Launchpad Methodology. However, given the "12 Handicaps" of the Mission Model Canvas (Business Model Canvas), Rod King uses a different toolkit for Business Model Hacking. Details of King's toolkit can be found in his groundbreaking book, "Business Model Canvas: A Good Tool with Bad Instructions?" This book is available at Amazon.com.
This presentation focuses on King's two tools for Business Model Hacking: Problem Solving Theater (PST) and Value Engine Map (VEM). These tools are applied to proposed projects in the National Defense and Intelligence Communities. When properly applied, tools of Business Model Hacking can help organizations to effectively and efficiently achieve their goals, vision, and mission. In particular, Business Model Hacking can help the National Defense and Intelligence Communities to rapidly save thousands of lives as well as millions of dollars.
