Business model shifts start as small moves inside an existing business model

A business model shift is a deliberate and systematic move toward more relevance and value for customers, and as a result growth of your organization. Business model shift can reflect bold moves into wholly new business models. 

But more often, shifts start as small moves inside an existing business model that evolve into entirely new ways of creating value and relevance.

Access, not ownership

Access, not ownership

Whatever you’re producing, at the end of the day, your customers only care about getting a job done. While your product may satisfy some of that need, you’re just as likely to be in a constant arms race to sell more and more product. Not every shift starts with an outdated business model, however. Many start by satisfying a need.

From products to services

The product business model is specif i cally designed to develop and manufacture products in an ef f i cient way. It’s the job of the marketing and sales team to put those products out into the market and ensure there’s demand from customers.

The services business model is specif i cally designed to get a job done for customers. A service business model is about understanding the lives of your customers and meeting their ongoing needs throughout time.

Most public companies cater to their shareholders to the exclusion of almost any other goals. Most shareholders want to see results and return on their investment today or at least next quarter. These narrowly defined financial demands are not supportive of growing your business in a value-driven way.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
