Business Model Canvas Workshop
From the WHS/HIF innovation management event last June, one of the main outcomes was the importance of creating a strong business case for sustainability at scale.
To address this, we developed and held a unique training workshop last month (March 2016) based on the renowned strategic management and entrepreneurial tool Business Model Canvas and adapted it to humanitarian sector specification.
The training workshop was designed to provide participants with an understanding of the Business Canvas Methodology devised by Osterwalder and Pigneur and to provide insights into its application for Humanitarian innovations.
The workshop was run by Ian Gray, who has over 15 years’ experience in the humanitarian sector in senior leadership positions. Ian produced a report following the workshop which highlights the outcomes of the two day workshop, including participant feedback.
It was designed to provide participants with an understanding of the Business Canvas Methodology devised by Ostewalder and Pigner and to provide insights into its application for Humanitarian innovations.
Participant Andrew Lamb, Innovation Advisor at FieldReady, got in touch to let us know that:
“Shortly after the Business Model Canvas workshop, I was asked on short notice to work on a Business Model Canvassing as a final stage of our application to participate in the Singularity University Accelerator programme. In short, we got in! So thanks for the workshop!”
