Business Model Generation Canvas
In order to create a successful business model three related facets have to be explored, the way of thinking, operational system and capacity for value generation. The business model canvas takes into account these three facets and creates an overall business model for the organization (Charharbaghi, Fendt, & Willis, 2003). To translate the ideas into a business there must be an operational system to produce and sustain the goals of the business model. The interaction of what people are thinking into an operating system enables the business to create value (Charharbaghi, Fendt, & Willis, 2003). There are numerous plans and strategies in which organizations plan to create value. The business model canvas created by Osterwalder and Pigneur is a versatile framework which enables the user to interact with ideas and create value. The canvas is separated into nine categories they are customer segments, customer relationships, channels, value proposition, key activities, key resources, key partners, cost structure, and revenue streams (Osterwalder & Pigneur, 2013). Osterwalder and Pigneur state in their book Business Model Generation “A business model describes the rationale of how any organization creates, delivers, and captures value” (Osterwalder & Pigneur, 2013). The business canvas enables the organization the opportunity to brainstorm ideas relevant to the specific segments of the canvas. This enables the way of thinking as a team to be displayed and business decisions to be made (Leschke, 2013). The canvas segments are divided to allow each area of the business to be represented and decisions to be made to enable the best possible outcome. Customer segments, customer relationships and the channels sections will determine what customers are the true target market, what type of relationship the company will maintain and…...

Finding Yourself

...Ana Westerman 27 February 2013 Finding Yourself I walked in the door Wednesday, February 15, 2012 with a huge smile on my face. My life was going just great. I had great friends, a serious boyfriend, and I was just doing my thing. As I walked into my room my dad followed me and shut the door. I instantly knew something was wrong. My dad started to talk and I wasn't paying attention because life was finally starting to be great. Thirty seconds later it finally hit me what was being said. "Your grandpa died." My grandpa has been struggling with diabetes, cancer, broken bones, blood transfusions and dialysis. He has had on step in death's door for the past twelve years. "He may be the solider, but he's not the only one serving" My family was behind him 100%. Not only my family, but everyone who knew him admired and loved him. He may be fighting, but he wasn't fighting alone. The four years when my grandpa didn't have heath problems- I don't remember. When I really started to know him, he had severe health problems, but you would've never known. I admire how he wouldn't let this take over his life-he wouldn't let them win. In February of 2012, my family and I would go up to Wisconsin, where he lived, multiple times and stay for a long period because he supposedly wasn't going to make it. I've heard that phrase for the past five years, and he's made it- so why would this be any different? We all knew he wasn't going to leave with out putting up a fight. He's been......

Finding Nemo

...Aaron Liu Finding Nemo: A Loss of Innocence Throughout the movie, Finding Nemo, Marlin has to endure a myriad of hardships and obstacles in order to save his son. Because of this journey, Marlin also goes through many changes in attitude. Marlin’s first real loss of “innocence” occurred in the opening scene. It begins with Marlin and Coral admiring their new home and their abundance of eggs. Marlin is friendly, loving, and appears to be carefree; the exact opposite of his personality throughout the rest of the movie. Unfortunately, a barracuda attacks, knocking Marlin unconscious and killing Coral and all but one of the eggs. Marlin ends up naming the egg, Nemo, a name that his wife liked. Therefore, a main character’s loss of “innocence” is through a devastation of fantasy as it encounters a cruel reality. The opening scene showed the origins of Marlin’s worrisome and fearful personality. Before his loss, Marlin seemed carefree and cheerful, however due to the harshness of reality, he transforms into a stranger. Because of the barracuda attack, Marlin realizes the numerous amounts of potential disasters. However, his last surviving child is what pulls him together and we can see that Marlin especially treasures Nemo because it is also a representation of his wife. Furthermore, the camera zoomed in on the cracking of the last egg. When Marlin notices that the egg is damaged, he vows to protect Nemo and wraps his fins around the egg, foreshadowing his overprotective......

Finding Truths

...blockades in Cuba were ever lifted. The parallels and the irony were not lost on me. I was stepping out of an American political cave that shrouded the beauty of Cuba and stepping into another, one built on patriotic socialism, one where truths were just as ideological as, yet very different from, mine. History, I recognized, is never objective. The journeys I have taken have been colored by my prior experiences and by what my feelings were in those moments. Everyone holds a piece of the truth. Maybe facts don’t matter. Perhaps my experience is my truth and the more truths I hear from everyone else, the closer I will get to harmonization. Maybe there is no harmony, and I must go through life challenging and being challenged, perhaps finding perspectives from which I can extract—but never call—truth. I must simply find ways to understand others, to seek in them what is common to us all and perhaps someday find unity in our common human bond. This is what life has taught me so far, my sum of truths gleaned from experiencing many cultures. I don’t know if these truths will hold, but I hope that my college experience will be like my trip to Cuba—challenging some truths, strengthening others, and helping me experience new ones....
