Why your business needs this book...

I bought the paperback. There are many reasons I like this's way different from your average business how-to or management book. Here's why you probably need it:

1. Your business needs to reinvent itself. Now.

Let’s face it. COVID-19 has changed the world as we know it. There is no better time for this book. It’s about how a business that constantly reinvents itself becomes invincible.

This is playing out now. We will see many businesses fail…this is so

A new dawn in exploring and exploiting business models and after the trilogy by strategyzer this 4th book hits the mark of being pragmatic, thoughtful, rich in thinking yet simple to read on many levels. Still need to dig deeper but I think this book will be my new swiss army knife of business model innovation for the 21st Century. Thanks to Alex Osterwalder, Yves Pigneur, Alan Smith and the full team at Strategyzer for sharing your insights so skillfully.

Good book! Not one to sit down and read cover to cover, but more as a reference, once skimmed, to go back to when engaged in specific projects. I think that the best audience for this book would be innovators inside established companies and the executives who manage such projects. It integrates well with the other three Strategyzer books. It seems to borrow some principles from Christensen; from Dual Transformation and Lead and Disrupt.

Great book - I loved the practical examples and tools and the balanced and realistic view that to be truly great, you have to get the right balance of skills, leadership, tools, and dedicated resources to both exploring new things while executing with excellence on those parts of the organization that keep the engine running. Highly recommended!

Überraschend gut für das Genre. Allein der letzte Teil zur "culture map" erschließt sich mir nicht.

Sinnvolle Lesezeichen:
- pp 98f: Hypotheses log
- p 213: Idea assessment
- pp 280f: Business model shifts
- p 105 i.V.m. p 337: Project staffing and goals per stage

If you accept the visual design (not for everyone) and the many examples of large multinationals this book really is the next step after business model generation. It perfectly combines business model design, value prop design, experiment design and culture design.

I don't think a book was the right format for this content. But the content itself was interesting, especially the case studies. ...more

Nice approach and cases, as always from Osterwalder. Great addition to the business design toolkit. Not _that_ much new content, if you're already familiar with the previous Strategyzer books. ...more

Great practical book for innovation. Wished I had this a couple years ago when managing a portfolio of startups. But in this book you get what’s needed to manage a portfolio of innovation within a company. Many things might not apply in Panama but eventually will (2-3 years from now). Knowing these tools and adapt them locally (but to be ready to use them as they are when the time comes) will make a huge difference.
