The media focus is typically on Product & Service Innovations rather than the holistic area of Business Model Innovation. However, the business model is a rich source of innovation. It is also a key factor when developing product and service innovations.

This talk will explain the relevance of business model innovation for your business and highlight some important techniques and approaches you can use when strengthening your own business innovation capability.
