Successfully managing the relationship between business and technology is a daunting task faced by all companies in the twenty-first century.

This book contains keen insights and useful lessons about creating winning software solutions in the context of a real-world business. Software should be designed to deliver value to an organization, but all too often it brings turmoil instead.

Software expert Luke Hohmann teaches you the business ramifications of software-architecture decisions, and further instructs you on how to understand and embrace the business issues that must be resolved to achieve software success. Using this book as a roadmap, business managers and development teams can safely navigate the minefield of important decisions that they face on a regular basis. The resulting synergy between business and technology will allow you to create winning technology solutions, and ensure your organization's success--now and in the future.

Building a successful Advisory practice is not very complicated, but it does take a tremendous amount of energy and effort. You need to utilize proper strategies, techniques and also become relentless with consistency to succeed. What I want to instill in the newly developing advisor is a sense of ownership. This more business type mindset can be the difference between having lasting success or coming up short. I once managed a program where I was charged with developing new Advisors. I brought in an executive to speak to a class where he explained that his role was to assist them when they had their initial struggles developing and managing their business. His experience showed that many of the advisors he worked with started off strong but eventually struggled and failed to continue growing their business. After hearing this I spent several years researching this very concern. What I found was that it was very real and happened to many advisors between the 3rd and 5th years of their careers, dependent upon how fast their initial growth was. This caused me to spend a great deal of time working with advisors that had either broken through this plateau or never encountered this period at all. This book is a culmination of the strategies that have proven to provide advisors with success in managing their business. It is hard-work but needs to be consistent work. It is very tedious work but such is the risk that could provide you with your ultimate reward. You see everyone in this business starts off with the idea of wanting to be good at what they do. But it is the elite performer that puts in the effort that goes along with becoming great! I wish you all the success that this business can provide you in the future.

O método de uma página para reinventar sua carreira e a si mesmo O best-seller mundial Business Model Generation: Inovação em Modelos de Negócios introduziu uma maneira visual única para resumir e criativamente debater qualquer negócio ou ideia de produto em uma única folha de papel. Business Model You: O Modelo de Negócios Pessoal usa o mesmo método poderoso de uma página para ensinar aos leitores como desenhar "modelos de negócios pessoais", que revelam novas formas de suas habilidades serem adaptadas às necessidades de mudança do mercado para revelar novas e mais gratificantes possibilidades na carreira e na vida. Produzido pela mesma equipe que criou o Business Model Generation, este livro é baseado na metodologia Business Model Canvas, que rapidamente se tornou referência mundial quando se fala de inovação. Este livro mostra ao leitor como: - Compreender o pensamento do modelo de negócios e desenhar o seu atual modelo de negócio pessoal. - Posicionar o valor de sua habilidade no mercado e definir o seu propósito. - Articular uma plano para mudança. - Criar um novo modelo de negócio pessoal harmonizado com este plano para mudança e - mais importante - a testar e a implementar esse novo modelo. - Criar um novo e efetivo modelo de negócio para a sua vida e a sua carreira. Apresentação à edição brasileira: É com grande alegria que apresentamos a edição brasileira do Business Model You. Este tema tem transformado nossas vidas, nos proporcionado o conhecimento de novos amigos, estabelecido novos marcos e ampliado o campo das possibilidades. A produção do conteúdo do Business Model You: O Modelo de Negócios Pessoal teve origem em uma comunidade via internet (vwww.businessmodelyou.com) que reuniu os principais autores do Business Model Generation, Alexander Osterwalder e Yves Pigneur, e, com a iniciativa de Tim Clark, gerou um produto direcionado para auxiliar pessoas a pensarem em suas vidas. A iniciativa reuniu 328 profissionais em 43 países. Em tempos de mudanças frenéticas, as organizações têm se deparado com concorrências antes não imaginadas, decorrentes da inovação e da globalização. Diante desse quadro, as empresas passam a contratar pessoas dentro de projetos para trabalhar por resultados e não mais por atividade, e os profissionais tornam-se empresários de si próprios. Ao mesmo tempo, amplia-se a necessidade do cultivo de uma visão empreendedora por parte dos profissionais, quer seja a sua própria carreira, quer seja a sua posição dentro do contexto organizacional. Passamos a nos engajar em empreendimentos originados por boas ideias, que geram bons projetos e que devem ser pautados pela ética para que consigam decolar dentro deste mercado complexo e competitivo. A antiga forma das relações de trabalho, que tantas vezes provocaram ansiedade nas pessoas por ser o eixo no qual se organizava a vida associativa começa a ter um fim, abrindo espaço para novas possibilidades de relacionamento da vida humana organizada. Então, como ser diferente dentro do quadro que se apresenta para as pessoas que se agrupam em torno de um objetivo comum? Como despertar a visão empreendedora dos futuros líderes que comandarão esta sociedade em mudanças? Como resgatar o senso de ética em nossos empreendedores? Como educar os nossos jovens para essa visão desafiadora da vida? Estas têm sido algumas das perguntas que nos têm motivado nos últimos anos, promovendo uma oportunidade ou espaço que estimule a autorreflexão, a formação do caráter, o cultivo de valores, o desenvolvimento do nível de consciência que formam cidadãos empreendedores e comprometidos. Vemos alguns sentimentos predominarem entre muitos profissionais que necessitam de um apoio em sua carreira ou negócios: medo, dúvida ou descrença ocorrem eventualmente. E o que precisamos é despertar a confiança. Quando o padrão de comportamento vigente é o medo, a energia resultante é de competição e o relacionamento interpessoal é superficial, consequentemente, a evolução das pessoas acontece de forma isolada. Por sua vez, se o padrão for de confiança, a energia reinante será de colaboração e ocorre a coevolução entre as pessoas. O mundo está passando por constantes mudanças, onde todos os valores estão sendo questionados. Por um lado, temos uma corrida pela cultura globalizada, o ser melhor, a missão de competir e de ganhar sempre. Do outro, temos a visão de uma aldeia humana, onde resgatamos nossos valores, importando realmente o brilho de cada um, a sua contribuição e prevalecendo a colaboração. O Business Model You é um convite para que as pessoas desenvolvam uma nova percepção para o entendimento da vida em sociedade e o papel que lhes é atribuído. Não são receitas ou fórmulas de autoajuda, mas uma descoberta de processo de autorreflexão com resultados que vão além do que se pode prever. Por exemplo: o hidrogênio é inflamável, o oxigênio é respirável. Quando juntamos H e O, temos a água que é “bebível”, correspondendo a uma propriedade nova, inesperada, inexplicável a partir de “inflamável” ou “respirável”. Quando juntamos diferentes olhares, um novo olhar surgirá inesperado e inexplicável. Assim é a vida. O Business Model You abre essa possibilidade de encontrar outras fórmulas para a vida das pessoas. Cruzar especialidades e conhecimentos e descobrir novos significados, de uma forma simples e direta, divertida e inteligente. Diferente de outros livros voltados à orientação vocacional ou de carreira, este livro proporciona o pensamento visual e resgata a cor e o lúdico para as pessoas. Esperamos sinceramente que ele possa ser tão significativo para quem o ler, assim como foi para nós participar do seu processo de cocriação. Desejamos a todos uma ótima leitura!

​This book undertakes to marry the concepts of "Concept Mapping" with a "Design Thinking" approach in the context of business analysis. While in the past a lot of attention has been paid to the business process side, this book now focusses information quality and valuation, master data and hierarchy management, business rules automation and business semantics as examples for business innovation opportunities. The book shows how to take "Business Concept Maps" further as information models for new IT paradigms. In a way this books redefines and extends business analysis towards solutions that can be described as business synthesis or business development. Business modellers, analysts and controllers, as well as enterprise information architects, will benefit from the intuitive modelling and designing approach presented in this book. The pragmatic and agile methods presented can be directly applied to improve the way organizations manage their business concepts and their relationships. "This book is a great contribution to the information management community. It combines a theoretical foundation with practical methods for dealing with important problems. This is rare and very useful. Conceptual models that communicate business reality effectively require some degree of creative imagination. As such, they combine the results of business analysis with communication design, as is extensively covered in this book." Dr. Malcolm Chisholm, President at AskGet.com Inc. “Truly understanding business requirements has always been a major stumbling block in business intelligence (BI) projects. In this book, Thomas Frisendal introduces a powerful technique—business concept mapping—that creates a virtual mind-meld between business users and business analysts. Frisendal does a wonderful explaining and demonstrating how this tool can improve the outcome of BI and other development projects ." Wayne Eckerson, executive director, BI Leadership Forum

Why has Facebook been so limber, evolving so successfully even after a number of stumbles, while Myspace stalled and lost ground? Why was Wal-Mart able to expand so successfully into new offerings, such as groceries, while H&R Block dramatically failed to expand into offering financial services? The answer, David Murray reveals, is that Facebook and Wal-Mart both started with business models that empowered them to effectively adapt their plans as they executed them. The failure of detailed strategic plans that have taken a great deal of time and money to develop is one of the worst problems in business, and it’s ever more urgent as the pace of change in business continues to accelerate. Murray, author of the acclaimed Wall Street Journal bestseller Borrowing Brilliance, argues that valiantly sticking to even a well-thought-out Plan A is the road to disaster. The greatest success comes to those who know how to construct and implement an adaptive Plan A that has within it the means of evolving into a superior Plan B by responding to problems confronted, discoveries made, changing market conditions, and the competition. Writing in a lively, engaging voice and using a series of specific examples drawn from companies including IBM, Intel, Facebook, American Express, and Kaiser Permanente, as well as from the art of war, including the Battle of Gettysburg and the D-Day invasion, and even from the space program, Murray presents powerful methods for constructing a plan that has the mechanisms for adaptation built in. Drawing on a wealth of research, he explains why we are fairly good at short-term predictions but why, in our ever more rapidly changing business world, even the best laid plans will eventually go astray. He then introduces the best techniques for creating an optimal original plan that takes into account our limited ability to predict, showing that vital to this process is that it be constructed so that we are alerted in time to make the right changes. In a brilliant discussion of strategy and tactics, he shows that the core of this adaptability is making sure that your strategy and tactics are well aligned with one another and that you have established the right metrics for measuring results. He then details precisely how to adapt throughout the execution process by constantly monitoring and assessing results, developing worst-case scenarios, and recognizing unanticipated opportunities. Plan B is an essential guide to harnessing the forces of change to achieve long-lasting success despite the most vexing challenges.
