Business Model Canvas. Although once used only for startups, the business model canvas can be used for a project, division, or an entire company. It has been adopted by companies ranging from healthcare and manufacturing to transportation and services. It is replacing the business model as a basis of funding for startups and its use is growing exponentially for existing firms.
The canvas is not just for designing and managing your firm. The canvas is also a powerful tool to diagnose how your client’s company creates and delivers value to its customers. You will see how useful it is as a framework to discuss how you can plan for growth or better understand operational deficits or risks. Finally, because of its plain language and single page display, it is a powerful communication tool for your employees, partners and funders.
CoreValue Software. Private businesses lack the transparency that would provide low cost capital, seamless partnering, and quick trust by customers. Because their operations re hard to describe, much less predict, many business have what is known as a value gap – the difference between what they are worth and what they could be worth.
Based on 30 years of research on private business transactions at MIT, CoreValue Software has developed the algorithms that estimate how much your company is worth and where value gaps suppress value. These assessments provide a roadmap to supercharging your company’s operations and take you to higher value. Get a quick estimate of your company value using CoreValue Engage, a 10-minute fast read and report on your company – and its future. See a larger version of the Value Gap Analysis Report.
