Why Should I Use a Digital Business Model Suite?
This system is an enhanced version of the traditional business model canvas, tailored for remote teams. It provides a thorough framework to not only meet business needs, but also apply extensive research and definition frameworks. Although it's designed for use within Notion, it can also be extended with tools like Figma or a simple blackboard.
In summary, this suite offers a comprehensive framework for analyzing and developing business models, aiding entrepreneurs and organizations in discovering, planning, and executing their strategies incrementally, all in one place. The benefits of using this template include:
- Structured Approach: The system covers popular business design terms, divided into two phases and scalable for new ones on the venture roadmap.
- Iterative Process: This system follows an iterative approach, allowing continuous refinement and adaptation of your business model based on feedback and market insights.
- Collaborative Platform: Notion's collaborative features replace post-its and blackboards, making it easy to work remotely with your team, fostering collaboration, and ensuring everyone has access to all items.
- Centralized Knowledge: With DBMC within Notion, all project information is stored on a centralized platform, accessible to all team members. This promotes knowledge sharing and tracks all changes.
The Research section is designed to gather data and information from customers, users, competitors, and other stakeholders:
- Interview: for storing, tracking, and reviewing interactions with stakeholders.
- Insights: for collecting data and information that feed your project knowledge.
- Ideas: for developing new outputs from previous insights in brainstorming workshops.
- Threads: for tracking all relevant discussions and decisions made with your team.
- Benchmark: for analyzing competitors, platforms, and other items.
- Docs: for storing relevant project documentation and tagging when checked.
The Definition section aims to frame specific questions to be resolved with the research made:
- Business model: for defining all dimensions of the new venture business.
- Business plan: for writing the ongoing pitch to share with stakeholders.
- Experiments: for using this DB as projects or milestones needed to reach business objectives.
- Tasks: for detailing what needs to get done to achieve experiment results and learn.
- Services: for curating, validating, and prioritising features, epics, or services.
