Overview

You are excited to see the possibilities after finishing the Business  Model Canvas Template. The next step is the development of the BMC  slide deck for review by the experienced former project manager  mentioned in the Module Four assignment.

Scenario

In the BMC slide deck, you will make educated assumptions (based on  research in Marketline, Yahoo Finance, or the company’s website) about  your selected company’s resources, partnerships, cost structures (what  needs to be paid for), how the product or service will be marketed,  value delivery (product sold online, in-store, or both), and the unique  value proposition for a specific targeted market segment.

All 9 segments of your redeveloped BMC must encompass elements to achieve new product/service feasibility.

Beyond profitability, other key elements that the experienced project  manager stressed were diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), as well  as corporate social responsibility (CSR). In the marketplace, companies  that have diverse project teams get varied perspectives that help the  overall project. Just as important, companies that “give back” to the  communities they serve do better and are supported by millennial  buyers—a big target segment for many companies.

Financials, DEI, and CSR must be addressed in the funding pitch,  which you will complete as your course project, due in Module Seven.

Prompt

You will create a slide deck that will help you expand on your BMC  chart in detail as you refine how your selected company will create  value for itself while delivering a new product or service for  customers.

5: Clarify Your Business Model Assumptions

Check each response in your previous BMC chart against the following criterion:

How do you know that what you wrote in each block is true? Have you made an assumption, or do you have solid evidence in the form of documented facts (based on research)?

Using the table on the next slide, list your assumptions and fill in the relevant information as follows:

Where you have facts, write the evidence in the “Fact” column.

Where you have made assumptions, check the “Assumption” column.

The table will help you identify where more research is still needed to address your assumptions.
