Culture map of Amazon

June 26th, 2016

Based on the letter that Jeff Bezos sent to shareholders about the Amazon’s corporate culture, we described this corporate culture using to The Culture Map we developed with Alex and Dave Gray (see article on the HBR post here)

AmazonCM

The outcomes presents the growth as the main goal and some achievements according this objective. The behaviours corresponds to positive actions people performed insideAmazon, such as willingness to fail, eagerness to invent, and patience to think long term. These visible behaviors are driven by enabling factors such as high judgement individuals or teams, risk-acceptance mentality, and reversible decision, if failure is detected.

Desirability, feasibility and viability of a business model

June 20th, 2016

A Strategyzer blog post on “Why Companies Fail & How To Prevent It” (post):

As suggested by IDEO, “When you sketch out a business model with the Business Model Canvas you actually make assumptions about desirability, feasibility, and viability:

fail+copy

Feasibility is about the assumptions that you chose the right infrastructure to execute your business model well (risk: poor execution).

Desirability is about the assumptions that will actually create customer value (risk: solving an irrelevant customer job).

Viability is about the financial assumptions that will earn you more money than you spend (risk: flawed business model).

Adaptability is about the assumptions that you chose the right business model within the context of external factors, like competition, technology change, or regulation (risk: external threats).

“Once you have defined all those assumptions related to feasibility, desirability, and viability, and adaptability, you can apply customer development and lean startup to test them.
