Сейчас для создания успешного бизнеса не так важен сам товар или услуга, как бизнес-модель компании, с помощью которой вы будете зарабатывать прибыль. 90% всех компаний используют одну из 55 бизнес-моделей или комбинацию из них. Никогда не поздно сменить бизнес-модель работы своей компании на более прибыльную. И лучше начинать экспериментировать, когда в бизнесе всё хорошо. В книге детально разбирается каждая из 55 моделей для бизнеса. Множество примеров и чек-листов для разработки.

An excellent reference book containing 55 different business model patterns like Add-on, subscription, razor and blades and many others. The book starts with an explanation of what is a business model and then goes on to give a sample process to develop new ideas for business model creation or change. But the meat of the book and the most useful is really the 55 business model patterns catalogued and described. Highly recommended to have fresh ideas about business model implementation.

I believe a key feature of this book - and why anyone contemplating starting their own business should consider reading it - is the authors' subscription to the necessity of trial and error when it comes to building a business model.

While business models are broken down differently in this book than the way Osterwalder does in Business Model Generation 'BMG' (I prefer the latter) this book would be a good one to read after finishing BMG.

Thee analysis of some of the business model patterns were

This was assigned reading for a business strategy course. Well-written, includes 55 business models and practical instructions on how to run a workshop to use the provided examples as springboards for innovation. Many of the models felt self-evident and at times repetitive but the point of the book is to highlight how businesses who successfully innovated in the past used a combination of these business models to create something unique to them.

if you thinking of your business model

nice collection of business models with great introduction into business model innovation. though i would question classification of some business but anyway it is the best book yet i saw if you want to think about your business model and how you may apply models from other industries.

My respect for the authors and the way they squeezed so much content on the small number of pages.
Straight to the point and very "reader-friendly", the presented matters are easy to understand even for people, who don't have too much previous knowledge in the field of business models.
It's a must-read for everyone, who want's to work with business models or create a organisation.
The presented creative way of nurturing innovation by making team brainstormings with the 55 presented models also

This book disappointed me. I was expecting how to create a business model from scratch. I was expecting to engineer a business model to be exact, but alas, this book does not teach you how to do it. Instead the author leaves the task to our discretion and to a trial and error method of picking and choosing one of the 55 business models or a mix of them according to the requirements. The author put this very succinctly in the part 3 of the book, while they mention the guidelines to implement ...more

Surprisingly readable (although sometimes repetitive) overview of different business models. The first few chapters were tougher to get through when reading casually, but would likely be a helpful guide when trying to come up with new business models. Clear explanations and examples of each of the 55 business models were illuminating. The tips for implementation/managing business model innovation were quite valuable too.

Visualisation becomes key in the business world today. The idea of the book is to collect the visual aids of management and configure them in a coherent matter, with a brief description of each one.

The result was an interesting easy to read book that can be of help for many people. I totally recommend it.

Dit boek is interessant voor de beschrijving van de diverse mogelijke business modellen. Inspirerend, ook al is er teveel overlap en is het onderliggende conceptuele model ambiguë (misschien een vertaalprobleem)

Het stuk voor en na de business modellen is weinig intéressant en vooral gericht op externe consultants.

The hardcopy's diagrams have wordings that are too small to be read. Perhaps it was printed from the Kindle version and the hardcopy was just an afterthought.

The fonts aside, the books contains a chapter of instruction of how to use a catalogue of 55 models for readers to form their own strategies.

Highly recommended, especially for start up young founders.

Good book. Lots of good ideas. Helped give me pointers in constructing my own business model, which turned out to be a high quality business model, as vetted by the banks, accountants, lawyers, and a variety of professionals in the field who gave me feedback in the process. Solid investment for those in need of putting together a quality business model. Recommended.

Generally not bad, but a little bit general and without too much details. Recomended for young entrepreneurs and owners of companies
