This book consists of three parts, in which the three different stages and ten building blocks of the BMT are detailed. The three stages are (1) the Definition Stage, (2) the Design Stage, and (3) the Result Stage. Each of the stages is elaborated based on several building blocks. For the Definition Stage, these are (1) Motive and Context, (2) Dream, and (3) Proposition. For the Design Stage, these are (4) Business Model Archetypes, (5) Parties, (6) Strategy, (7) Core Activities, and (8) External Test. Finally, for the Result Stage, the building blocks are (9) Impact and (10) Value(s) Creation. The underlying theory for each building block is always outlined first. We then discuss its practical application with the help of various instruments. Theelaboration is illustrated based on practical examples in the form of cases, quotes, tips, and checklists.
