From time to time we will here publish some of the methods and tools we use in our work. Our philosophy is to build upon established industry standards (mostly the tools and thinking from Strategyzer, Innosight or the d.Schools in Potsdam and Stanford to name but a few). We strongly believe that it is more purposeful to strengthen well-established tool-stacks and thinking, which have been adapted by a majority of organizations, instead of creating the 1000th derivate of a Business Model or ‘X Canvas’ just for differentiation's sake. This is why most of our tools come as a kind of plugin for some existing tool or method.
