The Business Model Canvas is a strategy and management tool that allows you to describe, design, and correct your business model. It's a powerful visual chart that clearly lays out the process for how you will make money and deliver products and services. It forces you to focus on strategic elements that matter most to your business and is easily adaptable, requires less time that a traditional business plan, and uses a universal template. Don't miss this interactive session where you will have the opportunity to see how it works.
