Business frameworks sit at the heart of every successful enterprise. They bring structure and clarity to business challenges and can help practitioners overcome the everyday problems they face.
The Business Models Handbook draws together the most helpful and widely used templates and frameworks into a single, invaluable resource. The book gives an overview of 50 of the best-known frameworks, including the BCG matrix, the Ansoff matrix, the Price Quality Strategy model, the Stage Gate model and the Service Profit Chain. Each chapter focuses on an individual model and expertly explains how it will help an organization grow and be profitable.
Written by the leading global market researcher who has worked on over 3,000 research projects The Business Models Handbook is, quite simply, a must-read for any business student or professional.
Well, first a caveat, it is not about traditional business models, but about tools, techniques etc for marketing and strategy. In fact, probably more than enough to get you through most of an MBA.
And it is extremely well written, with logical flows, explanations, etc, that I find few faults with it.
Unfortunately, the author limited himself to "only" 50 topics, I would have loved to see another 20-25 in there (like Balanced Scorecards, Strategyzers models, etc.), but you can't have everything you want and the topics covered are very well thought through.
