Steve Blank Model Canvas Mission – videos


In 2016, Pete Newell, Alexander Osterwalder and I developed the Mission Pattern Canvas for our Piracy for Defense class. We have now created a series of videos that explain how this variant of the business model pattern works: 11 videos with a total duration of 17 minutes.

Thank you to BMNT and the National Security Innovation Network for their support of this project.

When Pete Newell, Joe Felter, and I created the Hacking for Defense class, we developed the program after the previous classes of Lean LaunchPad and NSF I-Corps. Both classes used Alexander Osterwalder's Business Model Canvas to define the hypotheses to be tested.

However, the use of the business model framework within the Department of Defense was problematic. The teams present emphasized that the standard business model template did not match their problems. For example, in the Department of Defense, you do not measure progress by measuring revenue. Instead, you mobilize resources and a budget to solve a particular problem and create value for a set of beneficiaries (customers, support organizations, fighters, congresses, countries, etc.).

Therefore, the canvas area of ​​the business model titled Revenue stream does not make sense. The Defense and Intelligence Community is a Mission-Based Organization there is no income to measure. The first step in building a canvas that worked for these organizations was to change the Revenue stream box one that would measure success.

We called this alternative- Mission accomplished / success.

Now the Mission Model Canvas just needed four more settings.

  • Customer segments has been changed to Beneficiaries
  • The cost structure has been changed to Cost of the mission / budget
  • Channel has been changed to Deployment
  • Customer Relationship has been changed to Buy-in / Support
