Introduction

We start with an overview of the nine Components of Business Model Canvas. Who are your customer segments? What's your value proposition? What are your top revenue streams? How are you managing your customer relationship? What are your sales channels? What are your key activities? Key resources? Key partners? And what's your cost structure? (Slide 1)

Some strategies to optimize a business's cost structure include: reducing overhead costs, improving operational efficiency, outsourcing non-core activities, and negotiating with suppliers for better prices. It's also important to regularly review and analyze the cost structure to identify any areas of wastage or inefficiency.

A business can identify its key partners by analyzing its business model and operations. Key partners are usually those who play a significant role in the business's value chain. They can be suppliers, distributors, business allies, or any entity that contributes to the business's ability to serve its customers. It's important to consider the role each potential partner plays in the business, their contribution to the business's value proposition, and their impact on revenue streams and cost structure.

Key resources in a business can include physical resources like buildings, vehicles, and equipment; intellectual resources like patents, licenses, and customer databases; human resources like employees and their skills; and financial resources like cash, credit lines, and stock. These resources are essential for the functioning and success of a business.

Strategy canvas

Strategy Canvas is useful for plotting business factors against their importance. This way, you can compare competitors to your own business to formulate a competitive strategy. Any divergent value propositions you identify can be branched off and applied to the Blue Ocean Strategy framework. Blue Ocean helps you see what sets you apart from the existing competition in a saturated marketplace. Instead of competing in the areas that others already excel at, allocate resources to what makes you unique. (Slide 6)

A business can avoid becoming complacent after identifying its unique factors by continuously innovating and improving. It should not rest on its laurels but instead, constantly reassess its strategy canvas, looking for new opportunities and threats. It should also regularly apply the Blue Ocean Strategy framework to identify new areas of uniqueness and differentiation. Furthermore, it should allocate resources not just to maintain its unique factors, but also to develop new ones.

A business can ensure it's accurately identifying its competitors when using a Strategy Canvas by carefully analyzing the market and understanding the key factors that drive their business. They should identify the factors that are important to their customers and plot these against their competitors. This will help them see where they stand in comparison to their competitors and identify any gaps or opportunities. They can then use this information to formulate a competitive strategy and differentiate themselves in the market.

The findings from a Strategy Canvas can be applied to a business's value proposition in several ways. First, identify the factors that set your business apart from competitors. These unique factors are your divergent value propositions. Next, apply these divergent value propositions to the Blue Ocean Strategy framework. This will help you identify areas where you can create unique value in a saturated marketplace. Instead of competing on the same factors as your competitors, focus on these unique areas. Allocate resources to these areas to strengthen your unique value proposition.

This version of Product Canvas focuses on product features based on user personas, journeys, demographics, and stories. The user story allows you to write your product's customer story in a plot-driven way. Figure out how they think, determine inconveniences they face, and visualize what would make their life better. Use the constraints, design, and epics components at the bottom of the canvas to define the larger blocks of functionality and boundaries your product could face. (Slide 11)
