This manual serves as the sequel, or attendant workbook, to the bestseller Business Model Generation by Alex Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur, who are co-authors here with their Strategyzer software colleagues Greg Bernarda and Alan Smith. Their value-design workbook reduces the process of creating a product or service to its basics. Its PowerPoint-style text and accompanying info-graphics illustrate a clear-cut process for developing “products and services consumers want,” and will buy, use and enjoy. The authors focus their instructional guidebook on practicalities while leaving R&D theory to others.

The bullet-point format supports concepts that feel intuitively self-evident – information you may already know but haven’t codified or harnessed. Even experienced readers will benefit from this back-to-basic primer’s systematic approach. getAbstract recommends its information package – clear illustrations, sharp methodology, exercises, discussion questions and checklists – to designers and developers.

Focus your team’s efforts on creating customer value, and don’t sidetrack into designing features or technologies that miss the mark. Test your ideas continually instead of watching them fail at the final launch.

Put the “Value Proposition Canvas” tool at the center of your value proposition design process. Use it in concert with the “Environment Map,” which will help you define your context, and the “Business Model...
