Thanks for your attention!
Introduction to Business Model Canvas - cont.
A business model shown within just one sheet may be useful on nearly every phase of functioning of a company, especially when it comes to:
analyzing market position;
designing of new products and services;
innovating within existing processes, products and services.
Customers are key to every profit-oriented company, since understanding and fulfilling their needs generates sales and revenue.
To fulfill customers' needs better, it is needed to group customers into segments according to their common characteristics (e.g. age, gender, size of business).
Channels are ways of communication between segments of customers. They can be divided into:
own (e.g. established chain stores);
affiliate (e.g. warehouses selling products);
indirect (e.g. other non-affiliated retailers);
direct (e.g. established Internet store).
Depending on type and size of the company, resources might be:
internal (e.g. bought production hall, machines);
external (e.g. leased, rented).
Key activities can be grouped into the following:
production - manufacturing and delivering products to the market;
provision of services - solving customers' problems (consulting, conducting researches, etc.);
processes of managing, sustaining and acquiring customers.
Minimizing costs is not always the best solution.
Determination of cost structure should involve assessing demand type, which is the main drive here, what is determined mainly by business type.
Execution of Business Model Canvas
Very important thing in design of a Business Model Canvas is a working environment.
Currently in many offices setting of tables, type of furniture or walls color are subjects of studies, where influence on performance of employees is being determined.
Mostly used and appreciated resources during design of Business Model Canvas are:
isolated and cozy room;
markers in various colors;

Way of designing
There are many types of brainstorming, which are restricted by various rules, what results in various outputs. Proven rules for effective brainstorming in case of Business Model Canvas are as follows:
no judging and criticizing ideas of other people, since it may impact their willingness to share information;
encouraging outstanding ideas, even if they are highly forward-thinking or weird when analyzing at first;
developing on ideas of other participants, by merging and adding new features to already mentioned solutions;
reminding of the subject - keeping discussion creative, but within range of determined scope;
quantity, not quality - here, number of ideas is critical factor (the standard is ~100 ideas within 60 minutes).
Prototyping uses visual way (like Business Model Canvas), to show ideas in a stimulating way.
Prototypes do not need to resemble a final product or a product at all - they might show e.g. interface of a new Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform or simulation of a production process.
Also, prototypes can be created during brainstorming session out of office resources, like pieces of paper, duct tape, etc. Such use of prototypes may allow to develop more creative ideas about all 9 building blocks of Business Model Canvas.

Lean Canvas - cont.
Main aim of Lean Canvas is to be as actionable as possible, while staying enterpreneur-focused, what allows startups to create their own business models.
Making Lean Canvas actionable required removing all elements of Business Model Canvas that are risky or uncertain in judgement.
Ash Maurya created Lean Canvas, different adaptation of Business Model Canvas, since the original version in his opinion did not allow startups to develop their business models in proper way.
Lean Canvas - cont.

When all problems are listed, solutions for them can be developed using many methodologies, like 5W, Ishikawa diagram or other Lean tools.

Summary - cont.
Understanding of what business model actually is, seems to be an important issue during discussions, meetings or workshops on business model innovation.

The idea has been applied and tested around the world and is already used by such organizations as:
Opponents of Business Model Canvas point out following disadvantages of the described solution:
static picture of the company, which allows to understand the idea, but does not help in management;
helpful only for developed companies, not startups;
does not include any business factors;
cost and revenue analysis might be not sufficient to build a good business model.
Despite its drawbacks, the model is used due to its strong advantages, which are as follows:
easy and intuitive preparation of a business model;
clear composition of the canvas;
easy analysis of a created business model;
elasticity allowing describing business models for companies within many markets.
