Product description

From the Back Cover

You're holding a handbook for visionaries, game changers, and challengers striving to defy outmoded business models and design tomorrow's enterprises. It's a book for the business model generation.

Disruptive new business models are emblematic of our generation. Yet they remain poorly understood, even as they transform competitive landscapes across industries. Business Model Generation offers you powerful, simple, tested tools for understanding, designing, reworking, and implementing business models.

Business Model Generation is a practical, inspiring handbook for anyone striving to improve a business model - or craft a new one.

CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT BUSINESS MODELS

Business Model Generation will teach you powerful and practical innovation techniques used today by leading companies worldwide. You will learn how to systematically understand, design, and implement a new business model — or analyze and renovate an old one.

CO-CREATED BY 470 STRATEGY PRACTITIONERS

Business Model Generation practices what it preaches. Coauthored by 470 Business Model Canvas practitioners from forty-five countries, the book was financed and produced independently of the traditional publishing industry. It features a tightly integrated, visual, lie-flat design that enables immediate hands-on use.

DESIGNED FOR DOERS

Business Model Generation is for those ready to abandon outmoded thinking and embrace new, innovative models of value creation: executives, consultants, entrepreneurs — and leaders of all organizations.

From the Publisher

Osterwalder

The Invincible Company is the latest book by Alex Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur, authors of the international bestselling Strategyzer book series and the minds behind some of the most innovative business model tools that have changed the way the world creates new products.

The Invincible Company decodes how some of the world’s most successful companies managed to build superior business models and reinvent themselves while others have failed.

Together with coauthors Frederic Etiemble and Alan Smith, Osterwalder and Pigneur draw on years of research and practice to reveal how companies such as Amazon, Ping An, Airbnb, Microsoft, and Logitech have been able to disrupt industries, turn themselves around, and build resilient organizations that are able to reinvent themselves constantly. The authors show how "the invincible company" is equally equipped to search and explore new opportunities to exploit and grow existing businesses.
