Incidentally, I came across a series of short videos explaining Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas in 18 minutes, including its elements, how to use it, how to innovate with it, how to test it … that is, the essentials of the Business Model Generation book. Six videos can be found on Youtube:
- Episode 1: Getting from Business Idea to Business Model
- Episode 2: Visualizing Your Business Model
- Episode 3: Prototyping
- Episode 4: Navigating Your Environment
- Episode 5: Proving It
- Episode 6: Telling Your Story
I know, this is a pure “profit first” approach to business modelling. However, it is a nicely done introduction.
The first very rough-cut video explaining the better, Strongly Sustainable, Business Model Canvas is now available
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApOkQhbvJSc for video and http://www.slideshare.net/AntonyUpward/about-the-better-business-model-canvas for slides and speakers note (downloadable.)

More related videos will be posted soon – subscribe to the channel for updates.
Also folks may be interested in joining the 140+ academics and practitioners from around the world in the Strongly Sustainable Business Model Group forum on Linkedin: http://forum.SSBMG.com. This group includes a team bringing the SSBMCanvas to market and undertaking further related academic work.
Antony, thank you very much for making this link to SSBMG and your work. We will soon establish a strong connection and communication strategy that integrates the SSBM and SBM communities! See you!
