Workshop:

Design your new business models

Place:

Slovene Ethnographic Museum, Ljubljana

Date:

March 29th, 2012

Irena Čebulj, Head of Marketing Communications, Gorenjska banka

The workshop was useful for two reasons.

 

Firstly, because it shows how to eliminate the unnecessary in the assessment of a future job or a project and focus on the aspects that are the key.

 

And secondly, because it offers an easy tool to balance intuitive and analytical aspects of a business whereas in the practice there is often a conflict between these two.

Simon Ručigaj, Business Consultant, Media Specialist

This workshop led by Marko Savić has proven to be an effective training in fast and creative thinking, searching for holes in the idea of business model innovation while at the same time searching for new business opportunities.

 

His active coaching approach is encouraged throughout the activities, pace has not yielded. The organization was excellent in all respects.

 

I recommend it. +Simon Ručigaj, Business Consultant, Media Specialist

Workshop Design your new business models has shown the importance of co-working with different personnel profiles.

 

I recommend it to all organizations and individuals, especially to creative people who recognize the importance of creativity in their business development but realize that creativity itself is not enough. The future lies in co-working. There were individuals with different backgrounds in the groups and some of them were not able to get rid of their everyday roles to start creating.

 

Marko feels great in the role of a lecturer and leader. The atmosphere at the workshop was very relaxed. +Polonca Peterca, Freelance designer and Illustrator

The programme of the workshop was very interesting and systematic. The lecturer definitely respected all the rules a person should follow when giving a presentation. I have been to many seminars before but some only seemed like a waste of time. I was pleasantly surprised by Marko Savić in the role of a lecturer. The material was presented in a clear and understandable manner and the connection of different parts of the workshop was done in an appropriate way.

 

Practical video examples and group work, especially playing the “Build a tower, build a team” exercise, were very interesting. Creation itself on the business model canvas seemed a bit too short with short time for individual analysis. Here I think the lecturer should take more time to explain where the errors were and in which direction groups should continue. Of course it is hard to judge whether this concept would be time appropriate due to only one day duration of the workshop especially because of the large number of participants at the workshop.

 

It is my pleasure to recommend the workshop and the experience I gained from it, because through the creation of new business models we learn how to work in a group and to find new or develop old business ideas. +Boris Viktorovski, Management Board Member for Sales, Don Don

The workshop is constructive, highlights the importance of creativity, labour inputs and energy for the long run.

 

The concept of design thinking should be integrated into every development company! +Robert Klun, Architect and Director of KLUN ambienti

Mitja Jereb, Marketing Director at TSmedia

An interesting and useful workshop!

 

In only one day you learn about a transparent process you can use for your team and how they should always check their ideas before they commerce. It is a way of thinking in which a team is able to speed the promising business ideas and ground the uneconomic ones.

 

I would recommend the workshop to anyone who has a lot of idea and works in a team. +Mitja Jereb, M. Sc., Corporate Marketing Director, TSmedia

Estuardo Calderón Scheel, PM soft skills Trainer

What did I like? A very structured and mature way to bring the business model canvas didactically over. The design of the presentation.

 

What could be better? More time to correct issues – a conversation instead of a lecture from the beginning. Especially for the first presentation of the business model canvas, a round of introductions at the beginning and a feedback session at the end. Facilitated reflection phases after each exercise. +Estuardo Calderón Scheel, PM soft skills Trainer

Workshop for VE-ZA, a non-profit organization for creativity and social development, Trbovlje

Davorin Žnidarič, master of organization

The workshop in Trbovlje led by Mr. Savić gave me a new perspective on the organization of the business model. Although I was familiar with the basic concepts, it is the “canvas” method that offered an approach that differs from conventional visualizations.

 

I like to attend seminars, meetings and conferences in the field of organization and management, mainly due to new findings as well as new ideas that arise in seminars and workshops as it was the case at this one in Trbovlje. The approach and interpretation were at a high level.

 

Beginning with the first presentation slides the lecturer seemed to command all the communication strategies and resources, which he interprets. Subsequent “exercises” were conducted in a constructive way. A way that established confidence, motivation and playfulness, and on the other hand, presented an interesting team work and modern ways of organizing and managing projects. +Davorin Žnidarič, master of organization

At work I solve communication challenges for a wide variety of companies and organizations. Lately, I have noticed that the vast majority of organizations are somehow lost as the market in Slovenia reacts mostly to price. It is difficult for the businesses to admit that, especially the ones that have been on the market for some time. Price sensitivity, we know, is not something on which to bet, as there always may be someone who is and will be cheaper. So how do we design strategic communication, which should follow company’s business strategy?

 

Workshop Design your new business models opened a new important aspect for me. Companies need to move away from business strategies / plans / visions / actions (or nothing!), into the reflection of the business model. The model that is presented is about the change of thinking and people working in design business can quickly adopt it and apply it. Since it is simple, understandable, and made for life it is something new and at the same time normal. At least for most businesses I know.

 

It is a concept that can make the foundations of each company. It offers tremendous options for change. The model goes from the idea to the adaptation of it. In short, it allows experimentation which is essential in the business environment.

 

Participation obligatory! Even for those who are just thinking or suspecting that they have a need for self-realization in one of their business sides. So — highly recommended for start-ups, co-working spaces, conceptual initiatives, local communities and for those looking for integration of social needs with an economic unit. For your own mad ideas and their development.

 

The workshop is about how to connect the idea in your business and create an environment in which we are all happy and creative. Utopia? Absolutely not. Utopia is to believe that this is not possible. It is about a concept which comes in handy in everyday life. Meet the Canvas!

 

About Marko — at the workshop, he is the motivator, the expert and business strategy consultant, the man to talk to, great debater at lunch, “time keeper”, investor, trainer, storyteller, facilitator, and lecturer. It is obvious that he enjoys the workshop and learns from it himself.

 

It’s fun. +Tadeja Bučar, freelance / co-founder at VE-ZA / president of PUNKTcc
