What is the Business Model Canvas (BMC)?

The Business Model Canvas is a comprehensive and widely accepted model/methodology to plan, design, and describe a business model. Each of its blocks refers to a strategic area of your business and is used to describe its core aspects, helping you to visualize trade-offs, to take internal and external factors into account, and to align strategy and values.

In business, strategic clarity is essential to the decision-making processes, to enhance the competitive profile and achieve higher performance. In other words, the key to success.

This vizzard is based on the original template created by Alexander Osterwalder and is very easy to use. However, because we know that every business has its specificities, we’ve made it flexible to allow you to customize the sections with ease, according to your business needs.

  • Click on any section to directly edit them. You can use the cards in the sidebar as support.
  • Un/check the checkbox “Show icons” to hide or show them. You can also click on the icons to change them for a different one.
  • Check the “BMC default icons” checkbox to restore them to their default arrangement.

Pro tip: Create a template of Ash Maurya’s adaptation, the Lean Canvas, by unchecking the checkbox “Show icons” and readjusting the titles of your fields. A Lean Canvas delivers a clearer and more concise approach, beloved by entrepreneurs. It focuses on Problems, Solutions, Unfair advantages and Key metrics, instead of Key partners, Key activities, Customer relationships, and Key resources respectively.
