The objectives of this course are threefold. The first objective is to be able to accurately describe changes in industry structures and situations of business model innovation in general – applied to the example of recent e-business evolutions in particular. The second objective is to master the design of business models using a design-thinking attitude and adopting the “Managing as designing” paradigm. The third objective is to carry out a startup creation project in the digital domain and to mature its business model by testing the underlying assumptions in a so-called “Lean Startup” approach.
