Business model canvas is a great way to plan out a strategy for anything from a small project, a product launch or an entire business. It’s one of many planning processes that benefits hugely from a whole group of people getting hands-on involvement. Having a relatively big visual space to work in is key, and also means that the results that emerge can be read as one whole story which is clearly visible and transparent to all.
Here at Logovisual we like to practise what we preach. We needed a fresh impetus to get the New Year started with a bang and doing a business model canvas on the ThinkingWall in our meeting room seemed the ideal way to do some planning as a team. We also did a product/client sector matrix and an ops plan for the coming 3 months.
We were introduced to business model canvas methods by our friend and associate Jan Lelie from The Netherlands in late December. It was clear that, in the hands of skilled facilitator, the process could yield some compelling outcomes within a short and focused timeframe.
Because ThinkingWall is magnetic and drywipe, and because we have plenty of Magnotes (drywipe magnetic tiles) to hand, we found we improvised by using these resources freely to bring the business model canvas to life. We found that we could engage each other in each section of the business model canvas by initially brainstorming onto hexagons, then choosing the most specific, important or compelling to focus on further. We did a lot of moving stuff around and the large area and the magnetic portability meant we could keep the process moving without getting bogged down, with plenty of room to ‘park’ good ideas to be returned to.
The critical tenet of the business model canvas process is defining the value proposition. The fine tuning and articulation of a value proposition lends itself very well to using Logovisual Thinking (LVT). LVT is great for creating a shared sense or understanding, and in this context we used it as a kind of process within a process.
We generated numerous rich pictures which to us yielded meaningful content and profound insights in surprisingly short time. The business model canvas proved a great process for identifying focused strategies, whilst also provoking innovative ideas for future products and services.
We always welcome the opportunity to discuss how our visual thinking systems might enhance your methods and processes.

Logovisual really understood our brief and made some great suggestions to make our designs come to life. They helped us bring a child’s game from a small tin to a life size piece of experiential, for us to take in to store at John Lewis. Everyone loved it. Thank you guys.

The product itself is superbly built and easy to manoeuvre around with the attached wheels. From the office team’s communication before our event to the delivery team’s installation and pickup I found everyone to be really helpful and very professional going out of their way to meet our deadlines. I would certainly recommend logovisual.
SHAUN O’HARA, SAATCHI & SAATCHI WELLNESS
We were looking for a new “canvas” to share information and encourage joint thinking. The Thinking Wall turned out to be the perfect solution. There’s room to be expansive and for things to have real impact. The service we received right from our first enquiry, to installation (very fast, very painless) has been excellent.
