What is it about?

The Personal Business Model Canvas is derived from the Business Model  You, a professional development tool, and the name of the international best-seller written by Tim Clark, in collaboration with Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur. It is based on Alex and Yves’ original work on business model innovation. In essence, it helps people define their own business model, just as if they were themselves a business. It helps to replace career confusion with career confidence, whether you want to improve in your current position, change jobs, or start your own enterprise.
