The Power of A Business Model for Business Strategy

The Power of A Business Model for Business Strategy

One of the most important decisions a business leader makes is deciding on a Business Model to execute a Business Strategy. The model answers the “How” within a niche set by Strategy, limited and bounded by factors of production. Your job as a leader is to decide on a model – and then execute it.

Our Tekedia Mini-MBA Week 3 focuses on Business Model & Transformation. I sent this to our team to use for the weekly email blast. It is to remind us that deciding on a business model to execute a business strategy is indeed the most important decision a company can make. Yes, within many paths on that HOW question, you have to commit!

In the classnote, I listed dozens of different business models. You have to commit to one or more of them, but not all. But with experience, you know what works. Yes, of the top 20 technology companies in the world, at least 15 are united by one business model. That should tell you what is working in the web era.

Enjoy the near 50-page course note – and the videos, from me, and our Faculty members. Tekedia Institute wishes you a great profitable week.
