Business Models in the Era of Sustainable Development Goals, and how to manage their development, are at the center or our contribution to the annual conference of the International Society for Professional Innovation Management (ISPIM) in Stockholm this year. Please check the Title Page and Abstract.
We facilitated an exploration into revenue models beyond the usual suspects in the mobility industry, looking into adjacent industries, using the revenue model cards of the Business Innovation Kit. Led by our OEM client we designed and qualified new business models for the near term roadmap of connected mobility services.
Values-based, sustainability oriented business model innovation is at the core of a new project that we are conducting for the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and its Lab of Tomorrow. We are consolidating processes and tools to develop and assess new business models emerging from the Lab, and create materials for stakeholder communication. The project continues our successful collaboration with Dr. Florian Lüdeke-Freund, Professor for Corporate Sustainability at the ESCP Berlin.
We started working on a future vision and roadmap for digital services of a European car manufacturer. We are designing an innovation process for future connected mobility and provide market and technology research, methodological coaching and workshop facilitation. In tight collaboration with internal and external experts, we identify threats and opportunities in the portfolio of internal competencies and offerings. We specify a process how to explore and exploit mobility markets based on customer values and purpose.
For a new business unit of an automotive client we identified new collaborative business models with new benefits for customers, online business and dealerships. We started sketching dealer personas, reviewed and extended the business model on the new online unit, and leveraged its business model to enhance the business models of partnering dealers. New customer journeys resulted, involving both online business and local partners.
We contribute with two new articles to the new compendium published by Springer. A case study of Aravind Eye Care Systems analyses an outstanding successful case of values-based innovation in processes, products, services, business model and even networks reaching beyond the company. The book is so far published in German only.
