A 2-day masterclass on Business Model Generation (BMGEN) in London with Alex, logistic by Alison Coward, sketched by Cornelia Kauhs
“A rare two-day public workshop by the team behind the groundbreaking and best-selling book, Business Model Generation”
After this workshop you will have:
- Learned about and applied a practical visual language and innovation process to describe, challenge, and design strategy and business models.
- Appreciated powerful examples of business model innovation, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups and social entrepreneurship ventures.
- Explored and prototyped business models using design thinking, customer development, and lean start-up methods to boost future growth

￼Soutenance de thèse d’Alexandre Mitrailler, intitulée “EVOLIS : Un cadre conceptuel pour l’étude de l’évolution des systèmes d’information”, jury avec Michael Petit (Namur), Jean-Heny Morin (UniGe), Stéphanie Missonier et Thibault Estier, directeur de thèse (HEC)
on evolution of information systems, with a focus on the study of evolution triggers, what they represent and how they can be useful in the understanding of information systems lifecycle. To achieve this, Alexandre developed a framework to study information systems evolutions that takes into account not only the factors triggering evolutions, but also the nature of activities undertaken to evolve.

Seminar by Jean Vanderdonckt, UCL, ACM Distinguished Speaker (bio)
In order to be relieved from empirical and opportunistic development of user interfaces and to promote a genuine and rigorous approach throughout the development life cycle, model-driven engineering of user interfaces is typically structured along three dimensions: (1). Conceptual modelling of user interfaces and interaction: models should capture the essence of what user interfaces and interaction will be and should be compliant with a meta-model expressing its semantics ; abstract and concrete syntaxes could then be defined to express these semantics, typically through a User Interface Description Language (UIDL); stylistics study how such syntaxes could be graphically conveyed. (2). Step-wise and structured approach: a set of rules and general principles should guide the modelling approach in order to master all the steps required to achieve the full development life cycle, and(3). Software tools: a software suite is expected to support the aforementioned step-wise approach in order to properly conduct the development life cycle.
This lecture provides a retrospective view on model-based and model-driven engineering of user interfaces since its inception and sketches some prospective views to their future avenues, based on experience gained with the User Interface eXtensible Markup Language (UsiXML) experience

In this interactive talk with hands-on exercises Yves Pigneur will introduce the latest Business Model Innovation and Lean Startup tools, on how to design and test business models and value propositions to decrease the risks of innovation. Design thinking and customer development will be emphasised for exploring, prototyping and experimenting value propositions and business models. Participants will learn how to apply and use the Value Proposition Canvas, Test Cards, Learning Cards, and the Progress Board.

mini-workshop for Brazilian visitors in Lausanne for the IBS program, organised by Marc Laperrouza
The workshop aims at not only discovering and applying the Value Proposition Canvas, a visual tool add-on to the Business Model Canvas, to describe, challenge, and design new products and services; but also exploring design thinking, customer development, and lean start-up methods to boost future growth. The Business Model, and Value Proposition Canvas perfectly integrate, with the latter being like a plug-in to the former that allows you to zoom into the details of how you are creating value for customers.

Seminar at the Copenhagen Business School (CBS), in the Renowned Scholars Seminar Series (web), invited by Prof. Michel Avital
Designing tools to support strategic management and entrepreneurship
We suggest that the research focus in strategic management and entrepreneurship could be improved and enlightened by some of the more conceptual and design-oriented research in information systems. We highlight three areas in particular in which design science research in SI has excelled that could inform research in strategic management. The first area concerns the identification, formalization, and visualization of the core constructs and models of interest related to the design and analysis of strategic business issues. The second area corresponds to the exploration of how design thinking techniques and tools might contribute to improving the design, prototyping, testing and transformation of alternatives to strategic business questions. The third area addresses the research in computer-aided design assisting the process of designing strategic management objects. The three perspectives will be illustrated by our work and experience in the field of business models.

How To Design and Test Business Models and Value Propositions
In this interactive talk with hands-on exercises Yves Pigneur will introduce the latest Business Model Innovation and Lean Startup tools. Participants will learn the latest on how to design and test business models and value propositions to decrease the risks of innovation. He will, in particular, get participants to apply the concepts and tools from his new book with Alex Osterwalder, “Value Proposition Design”. Design thinking and customer development will also be emphasised for exploring, prototyping and experimenting value propositions and business models. (more)
