Alexander Osterwalder Speaking Topics

Innovation Culture: Managing and Innovating Simultaneously

What’s the difference between “successful” and “exceptional”? Successful companies spend their time on managing and improving their established business model. But the processes and culture of execution and management often kill innovation. Exceptional companies know how to maintain an execution culture and nurture an innovation culture at the same time. In this interactive and practical presentation, Osterwalder gets participants working on culture via his Culture Map, a business tool to assess, design and nurture a desired organizational culture.

Value Proposition Design: Getting Your Customers to Care

A study by Simon-Kucher shows that 72% of all new product introductions fail to meet their revenue and profit targets. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In this talk Osterwalder outlines how organizations can more systematically understand customers and create value for them with the right products and services – while reducing the risk of innovation at the same time. This interactive presentation is based on the Value Proposition Canvas, Osterwalder’s tool to design, test, and build value propositions.

Build Yourself a Growth Engine: Business Model Innovation

A study by KPMG shows that 74% of CEOs are afraid of new entrants disrupting their business model. Rightfully so! Osterwalder outlines how organizations can tackle the difficult topic of (re-) inventing their own business models to remain competitive. This highly interactive, hands-on presentation is based on the Business Model Canvas, a strategic management tool developed by Osterwalder to design, test, and build business models. Osterwalder shows that while business model innovation is difficult, it does not have to be risky.
