On Steve Blank's recommendation, I am reading Business Model Generation by Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur.
The first thing that strikes me about this book is the visualizations it has. Definitely not a boring read! The illustrations and use of space on each page to highlight concepts are impactful.
There are 9 building blocks
The author's highlight familiar examples such as the transformation of the book publishing industry. They cover Lego's long tail strategy of customer-designed kits, Google's business model of targeted text advertising over the global web.
Also included is a freemium strategy coined by Jarid Luckin and popularized by Fred Wilson. and the Open Innovation approach (below).
I found you can download the Business Model Canvas, Value Proposition Canvas, Business Portfolio Map, Team Alignment Map, and many more resources at Strategyzer.com
