BUSINESS MODEL INNOVATION


The leading program for the design of innovative business models

WELCOME

There are many companies with excellent technological


products. In particular Europe is characterized by
companies with sophisticated product innovation and
process innovation ability. Why did many of these firms
that had been well known for their products for many
years suddenly lose their competitive edge? Within a
short period of time strong companies such as AEG,
Grundig, Nixdorf Computers, Triumph, Brockhaus,
Agfa, Kodak, Quelle and Schlecker disappeared. What
did they do wrong? The answer although painful, is
simple. These firms failed to adjust their business model
to a changing external environment.

In this Business Model Innovation Certificate


Program (BMI-CAS) leading experts from
University of St. Gallen, Stanford University and
accomplished practitioners teach you the necessary
knowledge and tools to systematically innovate
your business model. In four different modules that
take place here on the executive campus of St. Gallen
University as well as in the Silicon Valley and on site in
your company you learn how to break through the
dominant industry logic and how to rapidly design
innovative business model prototypes.
Two well established methodologies represent a key
role in doing so: The Business Model Navigator
and Design Thinking. The Business Model Navigator,
a concept developed in St. Gallen at the Institute of
Technology Management, has successfully been applied
for the creation of new business models at companies
like Bosch, Hilti, SAP, ABB, Sennheiser and PWC, but
also in several European startups. The concept of
Design Thinking, a human-centered approach targeting
the rapid design and testing of innovation prototypes
will be taught by one of its pioneers, Prof. Dr. Larry
Leifer from Stanford University.

In todays business the ability to develop innovative


business models is an essential condition to maintain
long-term competiveness. In a more and more dynamic
and complex market environment it is not sufficient
anymore to build on innovation mechanisms that are
limited to products and processes. The innovation of
business models is the key element to transform
innovative products into unique customer value.
However, in Europe there are still only a few companies
such as Hilti, Holcim or Nestl that addressed this
perspective and successfully innovated their business
model. Most inspiring examples are still located in the
US, in the Silicon Valley. Amazon, Google, Apple, all of
them continuously overcome established industry
borders applying new business models.

Additionally gained first-hand insights on innovation by


Google, Apple and Tesla during excursions in Silicon
Valley and a Design Thinking & Leadership workshop
contribute to a learning experience that is unique in
executive education.
