The Business Model Gallery Design Themes
Proven strategies to design successful business models.

The Business Model Gallery design themes are a collection of patterns, themes and strategies used to delineate business model building blocks. Use them as inspiration and blueprints for designing your business models.

The best way to do this, is to look at the design theme and ask yourself, what would this mean for our business?

For each design theme we provide a short explanation, some key questions you can ask yourself and links to models in the Business Model Gallery, illustrating the design theme in practice.
