What does that mean? It means that managers have to think rigorously about their value proposition and their revenue and cost model before thinking of a strategy. The business landscape calls for challenging assumptions continuously. What is the difference between a business model and a strategy? A business model is how a company operates and a strategy is how a company competes. When the basis of competition changes because a new model changes the economics in the industry (i. e. publishing & book retailing) business models need to be adjusted and then the strategy realigned. This book adds a level (to the traditional strategic management process) that is more consistent with current 'real-world' practices in strategic thinking and analysis. It takes the students deeper into the intricacies of what constitutes a business model and how current strategy revolves around it. It is based on the premise that strategies cannot be formulated without first understanding the fundamental elements of a business model. Why modules? The module approach breaks down the breadth of information provided in traditional strategy textbooks into manageable modules as learning projects. It focuses on 7 key strategy impact areas as levels of analysis. It requires individual, team and class exercises for each module, which culminates into a consulting assignment in Module 7. It offers 7 modules of 2 weeks each. The first week of the module focuses on readings, cases, and individual and class exercises. The second week is the application week with team exercises where students engage in active research and develop mini-case papers. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_usedgood_1606494015
Riassunto: Finally, a book comes along that provides a unique yet simple and powerful
approach to understand the business model and the critical role strategic
management has in supporting it. Its value is in business model thinking. It
brings you a combination of the best contributions of academe and industry
that will help build business model-centric organizations. Inside, you'll learn
about strategy from a business model perspective. What does that mean? It means
that you'll first have to think rigorously about your value proposition; your current
or future competencies; and your revenue streams and cost structure before developing,
adopting, or modifying your strategies.
What is the difference between a business model and a strategy? A business
model is how a company operates, and a strategy is how a company competes.
When the basis of competition changes because a new model disrupts the
economics in the industry, it requires an adjustment in business models
before any new strategy can work. This book adds a business model level to the
traditional strategic management process that is more consistent with current
"real-world" practices in strategic thinking and analysis. It takes you deeper into
the intricacies of what constitutes a business model and how current strategy
derives from it, and offers 7 modules that will show you the key components to
manage to your business model, to help conduct business model analysis, and to
assess the financial viability of a business model, just to name a few.

This book brings together business-model based concepts with geometric forms
to discover the connections, scenarios of 'enter-the-boardroom' to apply the concepts,
and manager's g uidance points to take action. Each of the 7 modules is
a journey to tap into your creative mind to understand the new dynamics of
managing to a business model. It concludes with a business model agenda
to develop the business model-centric organization.
I wrote this book to offer a new approach to strategic thinking that is
simple and powerful. With years of teaching strategy and working on
research projects in a variety of industries, I have found that the new center of
gravity in the field of strategic management is the business model. It is a
phenomenon that needs to be explained to students and managers from
the perspective of how companies do business. It is full of opportunities
for students and managers to be analytical and creative, and make
a difference in the actions and decisions of businesses because they understand
their company's business model.
