You can't fit all the details you need on a post-it, luckily each post-it comes with its own dedicated notes. Add depth to your model with a simple description, web-links, unknowns you're looking to validate, or anything else you can think up.
When you use the Business Model Canvas on paper, you have great discussions around each piece of your business model. Now, you can do the same thing online with Strategyzer. Every post-it hosts its own collaboration, so you've got plenty of space to keep the discussions focused and relevant to solving one problem at a time.
Need a little help filling out your canvas? Each building block has easily accessible reference that will guide you and your team to understand what the building blocks are, trigger questions to help fill them out faster, advanced details, and examples of each. You've got access to 72 pages of content here when you need it.
By color coding parts of your business model, you can easily illustrate important aspects that are otherwise hard to show. For example, which value propositions and revenue streams belong to which customer segment? Colors make it clear.
Give access to as many users as you want, who will all use SSL encryption to keep your data safe. Strategyzer is entirely realtime, so anyone with access to a project is always up-to-date. A post-it added in Toronto shows up immediately in Tokyo and Timbuktu – or wherever you and your team collaborate from.
Make quick, easy estimates using 15 pre-built cost and revenue formulas. Then, check profitability and collect your estimates into a financial report.
Your numbers are baked right into the business model, so you can see the highest earning revenue streams, customer segments, and biggest costs at a glance.
Once you've roughed it in, you're going to need more detail. Export your data out to a spreadsheet to go deeper.
Use a simple stoplight coding system to show what state your business model is in. Red = failed idea. Yellow = needs testing. Green = ready to go!
90% of your model needs to be tested? Great, your goal is to get rid of the unknown. A simple chart makes clear how ready your ideas are to spend time and money on.
There’s always lots of unknowns to test, but in reality, we only have time for the most critical. Prioritize what you need to learn first to make the business a success, and what can wait.
