Designing a business is a difficult task. Books like Operating Model Canvas help cut through the complexity. It helps you to go one step deeper beyond the Business Model Canvas and Value Proposition. This book could be considered as part of a family of books like Business Model Generation, Value Proposition Design, Design a Better Business as we need to have conversations around the How. All are landscape. All are easy to read. All are full of tools and case examples. They should all be on your book shelf or the side of your desk.

If you liked Osterwalder et al.’s Business Model Canvas and Value Proposition Design, you’ll also want to spend time with this one. All three books have a light and engaging tone and are co-created with practitioners. But Operating Model Canvas picks up where the earlier books leave off, taking the thinking about activities, resources, and partners to the next level. It’s critical for making a business model work.
