The Next Evolution of the Business Model: Designing a Business Model that Disrupts the Competition Without Disrupting your Company

Monday, May 1, 2017 from 11AM-12PM

Entrepreneurs have been playing with unique business model designs for nearly three decades. They have creatively applied the concept to design disruptive frameworks that challenge incumbents, forcing large companies into what Clayton Christensen termed “The Innovator’s Dilemma”.

But the winds are slowly shifting. As large organizations move into more agile forms – adopting open architectures – and start to shift their definition of strategy as no longer being about choices and commitments but as building the capacity to change, they’re beginning to unlock ways to design disruptive business models from within existing organizations.

Join Kaihan Krippendorff as he breaks down the key components of the business model and how organizations today must use intelligent design that fosters innovation creation with truly transformative potential.
