Time to upgrade your business model?

Time to upgrade your business model?

In this one-day course we give you an intensive introduction to the field of business models, how they can be innovated and how you can apply this to your own business. Addressing the business models has turned out to be maybe the most critical part of business development in competitive markets.

In today’s fast changing environments, most businesses need to reconsider their business model to be able to keep or regain competitive advantage. We bring you an overview of the state-of-the-art research, followed by an introduction to methods for analyzing current business models. The analysis often reveals a need to redesign the business model to regain competitive advantage. In the second part of the course, we focus on business model innovation; how do you go about this challenge and which tools are accessible? We guide you on the way and give you applicable tools and models.

To develop skills to innovate your business models, you will be involved in group work to study real-life business cases and apply the models and tools you have been introduced to in the first part of the course. This is an important part of the learning process and we expect all participants to actively involve themselves in this work.

We encourage all participants to bring a real business case that we can use or discuss in the course, either in the plenary sessions or in the group work. This will be part on the preparation for the course.
