We blaim Business Model Generation with their first Business Model Canvas ;). The success of this canvas inspired a lot of visual thinkers world wide. Because Business Model Canvas used the Creative Commons Attribution – Share Alike license, it basically encouraged people and businesses around the world to talk about it in blogposts, share their own business model, or integrate it into their services. The ‘attribution’ part of the license gave the creators the spotlight they deserved. Sharing something with the world served as a channel which lead to sales of books and services.
At Wedesignthinking we are a big fan of this license. It feels very fair to share work in a free manner that encourages people to use and improve it while getting proper acknowledgement and attribution in return. All of the canvases created by (and for) us are also shared under the Creative Commons Attribution – Share Alike 4.0 International license. So feel free to:
