I think there is often confusion on what the term "Business Model" actually means. This books proposes 9 building blocks on what a Business Model is. It then goes on to use numerous businesses to demonstrate the concepts that it proposes. If you're an entrepreneur with a Start Up, or you are a CEO or Board Member of an mature company, the Business Model concepts proposed by this book will help you to look at your company in a slightly different light to assist you in making strategic decisions to assist you in delivering value to your customers. I highly recommend this book, and I consider this book a fundamental read for anyone in Business.
This is a great tool for agile organisations and teams. The beauty is in the simplicity. It helps keep focus on the kernel of model and eliminates unnecessary fluff. Quick and effective. It highlights the importance of clarity in understanding the key aspects of a startup model or a pivot. ( or keeping an established business focused) Definitely a practical and worthwhile book.
