Training module: Business Management

The words Business Model are used very often in boardrooms. But what does it actually stand for? The intention is to clear the confusion concerning this term. Futhermore, it is important that we dig into the business model from an economical necessity. New business models cause a shockwave in the current economical landscape. Think of Google, IKEA, eBay, etc. These companies proved to be capable of not only choosing a new approach to the market, they also took an advantageous strategy in IT.

And they did much more. They incorporated one or two insights in a goal oriented, perfectly balanced, coherent business strategy and business organization. Focus and cohesion is the crux in this issue. In the training module, based on various business models, we will start screening organizations and construct an advice that will realize this focus and cohesion for an organization.
