In this short video, Dr Kasim Randeree, Director of MBA Programmes at Coventry Business School, reviews the course.

In the first two sections we have introduced the concept of business model thinking, why such models exist and how they can be used to classify what sort of new idea you have. We have also illustrated where your idea might fit within a number of industry sectors (and sub-sectors).

We have explored the idea of a ‘value proposition’ and why it is vital to any successful business idea. The main factors behind successful start-ups – and why they may fail – have also been shown.

We have shown that naming your business can be critical to its success and long-term sustainability.

Whilst analysing the ideas of vision and mission, we have studied how they interact with each other, and how they must be a fundamental part of a business’s strategic direction.

The next course in the Business Models and Processes Program is Business Model Design where we will look in more detail at a number of existing business models and how your idea might fit into them.
