Old Thinking on Business Models

“A business model describes the rationale of
how an organization creates, delivers and
captures value (financially)”*
* “Business Model Generation”, by Alex Osterwalder & Yves Pigneur, 2008
From:
Your Business Model
Sustainable
Development
Rethinking Business Models

Your Business Model
“A business model is a description of how an enterprise defines
and achieves success over time” The story and the numbers*
Socially beneficial, environmentally regenerative, and financially viable
* Upward, A., & Jones, P. H. (2016). An ontology for strongly sustainable business models: Defining an enterprise framework compatible
with natural and social science. Organization & Environment, Special Issue: Business Models for Sustainability: Entrepreneurship,
Innovation, and Transformation 29(1), 1-27. doi:10.1177/1086026615592933 & download manuscript: www.academia.edu/14461116

21st Century Enterprise Design Needs New Tools
• Fit-for-purpose enterprise design tools must:
• Embed all the knowledge necessary to describe and design a business model
– Based on any combination of enterprise goals and stakeholders
– From social, environmental and economic perspectives
• Make this knowledge accessible via a shared language
• Be able to describe the present and design multiple futures
• Enable collaborative meaning and decision making, despite the necessary complexity
• Be visual and attractive
– This is a very challenging design brief!
5
Our Proposal:
Use a Holistic & Integrated Enterprise Design Tool
A tool that provides a common language in a useful visual
framework to enable you to collaboratively sketch, prototype,
design, improve, understand, measure, diagnose and tell stories
about any business model – socially environmentally and
economically – present or future – words and numbers

Introducing a Ground-Breaking
Holistic & Integrated Enterprise Design Tool…
* Upward, A., & Jones, P. H. (2016). An ontology for strongly sustainable business models: Defining an enterprise framework compatible
with natural and social science. Organization & Environment, Special Issue: Business Models for Sustainability: Entrepreneurship,
Innovation, and Transformation 29(1), 1-27. doi:10.1177/1086026615592933 & download manuscript: www.academia.edu/14461116
Based on 3+ years of well cited peer reviewed research* and 10 years
of practice with entrepreneurs and business leaders around the world
Significantly extends Alex Osterwalder’s research & practice:
the earlier & very successful profit-first Business Model Canvas
Our Approach: Holistic
Design your Business Model considering
all sources of opportunity and material risk relevant to
all your stakeholders – increasing possibility to achieve
all their goals effectively, efficiently, reliably and gracefully
Your Business Model
Our Approach: Integrated
The Flourishing Business Canvas integrate all aspects of an enterprise:
enabling more effective learning and innovation
to create the most compelling stories
Your
Business
Model
Operational Plan
Transformation Plan
Assumptions
Context
Vision, Mission, Values
Strategy
Now in use around the world…
A Fit-for-the-21st Century Business Modelling Tool
10
Flourishing Business Canvas – a language for future-fit enterprise design:
17 necessary and sufficient questions to describe any business model:
socially, environmentally & financially – story & numbers – present or future
Key Upgrades to Enable Flourishing Business Modelling
From Business Model Canvas
– 9 questions focused on historic factors
required to create and capture financial
value
– Missing financially material factors in
today’s increasingly complex world
To Flourishing Business Canvas
– 17 integrated questions about social,
environmental & financial value
(includes the 9)
– Includes the necessary factors to assess (financially)
material risks and all sources of innovation
opportunity relevant today & tomorrow
