In this article we discuss how to use the business model canvas to work out whether the system we are implementing makes sense in a government setting. Traditionally the problem with the the Feasibility part of the business model canvas is that it doesn’t work for the typical government department. Note that the Business Model Canvas can be split into 3 major sections:
- Desirability – does the system deliver enough value that stakeholders will pay for it?
- Feasibility – can the system be built with the resources available?
- Viability – once built can the system be sustained from the value its created for stakeholders?
