Business Model Canvas


The Business Model Canvas is a strategic management template used to portray an existing or new business model, which is how an organisation create, captures, and delivers value within social, economic, and cultural contexts. The process of creating a business model is known as business model innovation, which is a part of a company's business strategy. The Business Model Canvas is a common tool to visualize the business model by breaking it down into nine distinguishable "building blocks", which represent elements describing a company's offerings, infrastructure, customers, and finances. The Business Model Canvas is a fixed template that allows user to simply fill in the 'blocks'
