The starting point of the workshop was the business models design, but such an experience includes also aspects of a team work, adapting to new situations, quick thinking and optimizing the performance. —Helena Franca, Independent Design Professional >

A general assessment of the workshop: Satisfied!

The key value that I gained at the workshop is my awareness of the need to do prototyping of business models. One doesn’t necessarily need to use a lot of time for each iteration.

I will recommend this workshop to others because they will improve the skill of business models design… —Danilo Kozoderc, Education and Innovation Management Consultant >

The workshop was useful for me.

I liked in particular that the Business Model Canvas was in the spotlight. We had it all the time in front of us and through tasks we gradually memorized it. This approach seemed very interesting and effective, but I was a little scared in the beginning.

I must recommend Marko’s professional approach and communication before, during and now after the workshop. —Tina Koder Grajzar, Arts and Crafts Designer >

As I have already advised at the workshop, I personally would certainly introduce the participants of the workshop with some ” pre- story” before Business Model Canvas through which they would find themselves in the value chain (as defined by Skinner from London Business School). —Borut Jurišić, Desk Officer, Maribor Development Agency >

Workshop

Business Models Design

Place

Pomurje Technology Park in Ljutomer

Date

October 18th & 19th, 2013

Nives Sapac, Project Manager, Pomurje Technology Park

At the workshop I liked the most, a brief and understandable Business Model Canvas presentation, work in groups and the end-analysis of each group, including the final processing to the correct solution of the business model. —Nives Sapač, Project Manager, Pomurje Technology Park >

Mitja Milic, manager, ZC Korak

I was pleased with the workshop because I needed a confirmation of how to proceed with my career. I have gained additional confidence. I’d be happy to attend some more training sessions in the future. —Mitja Milič, Project Manager, manager, ZC Korak >

Majda Robic, Executive Director, World Hemp Congress

The workshop opens up completely new horizons in the preparation of business plans and presented Business Model Canvas opens up the existing holes in the very layout of the business system.

Individual approaches in the workshop opened new horizons in our team. Thank you! —Majda Robić, Executive Director, World Hemp Congress >

At the workshop I felt good. It was a 100 % offset of the daily work routine. Time limit to nine minutes to design each business model is otherwise stressful, but I understand the point of it. And I do plan to attend similar workshops. After this workshop, I was clearer about the potential application of the method. I believe I’m going to use it again. —Luka Madjar, Junior Consultant, Consensus >

The things I liked the most in this workshop: + we almost rediscovered the importance of thinking in a team (because we at Consensus are essentially individualistically oriented); and + that Marko pretty well manoeuvred among us and kept us in order and discipline, because we (as a result of individualism) are sometimes difficult to tame… in short discipline. —Darinka Pek Drapal, CEO and partner, Consensus >

Lucija Mak Uhan, communications consultant

The two-day workshop was very tiring because Marko was inexorable and takes care that no second aimed at the workshop is lost. Very little theorizing, the right amount of examples of successful business models from the real world, and a lot of practical work. That’s why I enjoyed the workshop. I highly recommend. —Lucija Mak Uhan, communications consultant >

For me, it’s essential that I got hands-on experience on how to use Canvas; case looks like a simple sheet of paper online, but you have to understand the concept, you know. And that’s not quite so easy as it seems.

Thus, managers who have the opportunity to realize the power of creativity to grow as creatives, you will see that every great idea needs a supportive ecosystem of the remaining 8 Canvas fields, … —Blaž Branc, Marketing Manager, Conceptual Sales Engineer, HRM, Lecturer and Coach, Baltazar marketing >

Oskar Arko

The workshop, led by Marko Savić, is primarily a representation of the Business Model Canvas. But only with practical examples and a large number of exercises we realize the true value of this model. Guidance through the iterations of business models, which are becoming more sophisticated, leaves the participants of the workshop a feeling of proficient approach and acquired knowledge. —Oskar Arko >

This was the first time I could actually take something from the workshop, some concrete things and developed it for my business model. … At the workshop I got the answers to some key questions, in particular, it has helped me understand the key elements of the business model. I found new perspectives for the business, put in my memory some really good impressions and flashes from the lecturer but… —Andrej (Tešky) Težak, Owner & Head Manager, Studio Smijeha & Ceh za smeh >

The whole thing seems phenomenal to me, because all those models from the thousand and one book from the university study complicated more than not.

Workshop Design your new business models has shown the importance of co-working in diversified groups. I recommend the workshop to all organizations and individuals, especially for creative people who recognize the importance of creativity in their business development but realize that creativity itself is not enough. —Polonca Peterca, Freelance designer and Illustrator >

Boris Viktorovski, Management Board Member for Sales, Don Don

I was pleasantly surprised by Marko Savić in the role of a lecturer. The material was presented in a clear and understandable manner and the connection of different parts of the workshop was done in an appropriate way. It is my pleasure to recommend the workshop and the experience I gained from it, because through the creation of new business models we learn how to work in a group and to find new or develop old business ideas. —Boris Viktorovski, Management Board Member for Sales, Don Don >

What did I like? A very structured and mature way to bring the business model canvas didactically over. The design of the presentation. What could be better? More time to correct issues – a conversation instead of a lecture from the beginning. Especially for the first presentation of the business model canvas, a round of introductions at the beginning and a feedback session at the end. Facilitated reflection phases after each exercise. —Estuardo Calderón Scheel, PM soft skills Trainer >

Workshop for VE-ZA, a non-profit organization for creativity and social development, Trbovlje

Davorin Znidaric, master of organization

The workshop in Trbovlje led by Mr. Savić gave me a new perspective on the organization of the business model. Although I was familiar with the basic concepts, it is the “canvas” method that offered an approach that differs from conventional visualizations. —Davorin Žnidarič, master of organization >

Workshop Design your new business models opened a new important aspect for me.

Companies need to move away from business strategies / plans / visions / actions (or nothing!), into the reflection of the business model. The model that is presented is about the change of thinking and people working in design business can quickly adopt it and apply it.

Since it is simple, understandable, and made for life it is something new and at the same time normal. At least for most businesses I know. —Tadeja Bučar, freelance / co-founder at VE-ZA / president of PUNKTcc >
