Many people are going to find the insights in this book really valuable. Whether you are new to the topic or a seasoned practitioner, the book offers plenty to help you on your operating model journey: a clear framework for thinking about operating models, a basket of tools, and copious examples ranging from Zara to Snapfish and from a government department to an IT function. There are alternative ways to approach the concept of operating models, but I can highly recommend the approach in this book. It is easy to read, practically relevant, and touches upon all the important aspects.

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.
