Great book to get you thinking, not a ton that is immediately actionable. But sets the environment for you. An introductory to the concept of a "business model."

As a culture, we strive for personal transformation. Whether it's eating better and getting fit, redefining our professional value proposition through training and education, or simply trying to be kinder and gentler, we're constantly reinventing who we are and what we can do. We may not be successful all the time, or achieve breakthroughs like those featured on The Biggest Loser or facilitated by Tony Robbins, but millions of people successfully transform and reinvent themselves every year.

Strong Concepts But Needs Better Writing "Moneymavericks92@Gmail.com"

Saul starts out by telling you a bit about himself, and how much he is inlove with the concept of innovation. he makes it clear that he's a very learnt man in the area. so you really get the feeling that you can trust his intelligence. This is my first book on the art of innovation, so this review might not benefit the veterans of innovation


This book has some pretty interesting concepts, so much so that i'm quite glad that i d

I enjoyed Business Model Innovation Factory because of its premise. With the speed of business becoming faster every day (largely due to vast technological changes), I believe that large organizations will need to "pivot" more than once. Ditto CIOs. I just don't see too many companies remaining stagnant if they expect to survive.

Kaplan does a good job at laying out the case for innovation. As another reviewer has pointed out, "Saul sets

Blockbuster's executives saw Netflix coming. Yet they stuck with their bricks and mortar business model, losing billions in shareholder value. They were "netflixed." Business models don't last as long as they used to. Historically CEO's have managed a single business model over their entire careers. Today, all organizations must be capable of designing, prototyping, and experimenting with new business models. The Busine

This book started out quite promising, but quickly turned to empty cheer-leading as so many business books do. Kaplan makes a compelling case for structured and intentional R&D around alternative business models. Unfortunately he provides very little insight into how to carry out such R&D beyond a few staffing and reporting recommendations. Even these boil down to the standard "You need executive buy-in and separate funding". After chapter 4 he starts to repeat himself and the book, brie ...more

Great concepts in the book but not very well written, in my opinion. It felt like he was repeating himself and he seemed to use the same example for different concepts. There were some great insights into why companies don't respond to respond to change or take ideas that are presented to them. I also think that the personal business model was a great concept as well.

An excellent book! It explains in every chapter what is a Business Model, its importance and why you must know how to create or transform one.
