And to today’s episode.
Dr. Alexander (Alex) Osterwalder is one of the world's most influential strategy and innovation experts, a leading author, entrepreneur, and in-demand speaker whose work has changed the way established companies do business and how new ventures get started.
Ranked No. 4 of the top 50 management thinkers worldwide, Osterwalder is known for simplifying the strategy development process and turning complex concepts into digestible visual models.
Together with Yves Pigneur, he invented the Business Model Canvas, Value Proposition Canvas, and Business Portfolio Map - practical tools that are trusted by millions of business practitioners from leading global companies including Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Nestlé, MasterCard, Sony, Fujitsu, 3M, Intel, Roche, Colgate-Palmolive, and many more.
He returned to the podcast to talk about what leaders can do to build truly invincible companies and weather storms that are a result of technological and social change, financial market shocks and of course, viruses.
1 - what defines an invincible company
2 - how companies can balance a portfolio between exploration of new business models and exploitation of existing ones
3 - what companies like Amazon, IKEA and Logitech have done to play the long game and stay relevant
4 - and finally, how one such invincible company profiled in the book, Airbnb, might weather the storm of COVID-19
With that, I bring you the one and only, Alex Osterwalder.
