Enterprise Business Design Services

Disciplined Entrepreneurship

Helping entrepreneurs launch new products and services successfully

Have an idea? A breakthrough technology? Or a passion? Bring your product or services to the market with the help of our disciplined entrepreneurship assessments and roadmaps. 

We provide frameworks, open doors to financing, and design a roadmap to follow to create your business model canvas in six steps. Creating a roadmap to success, we’ll uncover:

  1. Who your customer is
  2. What you can do for your customer
  3. How your customer acquires your product or service
  4. How to make money off that
  5. How to design and build your product
  6. How you can scale your business

During the initial assessment process, you’ll gain clear and concise insight into the nine building blocks of a successful business model. We’ll then prescribe and guide you in the 24 steps to a successful startup, in a customized comprehensive, integrated and proven step-by-step approach to creating the innovation-driven enterprise needed to bring your product to market.

If you’re relying on outside investment, we’ll show you how to find and pitch to suitable investors. We’ll also help you find and apply for applicable grants by searching OpenGrants.io

Canvas Collection

Sustainable business design services from Elyon's Canvas Collection

Create high-level operating models by compiling all of your data together and brainstorming ideas as a team. No matter where you are in starting or transforming your business, these simple but powerful “canvases” help you achieve breakthroughs in business design thinking.

Business Model Canvas (BMC)

With clear and concise insight into the 9 building blocks of any business model, BMC design workshops and model evaluators are here to help you discover and deliver optimal value to the right customer segments. 

Operating Model Canvas (OMC)

The Operating Model Canvas (OMC) tool is about high-level operating models (1-10 pages). 

The tool defines the term operating model as POLISM:

Processes: The work that needs to be done in order to deliver the value proposition or service proposition. 

Organization: How the people who will do the work are organized. 

Locations: Where the work is done and what assets are needed for these locations.

Information: The information systems that are needed to support the work. 

Suppliers: What organizations provide for the work and the relationships that exist in the organizations. 

Management systems: The planning, budgeting, performance management, risk management, continuous improvement, and people management processes that are needed to run the organization. 

Strategy Model Canvas (SMC)

The strategy model canvas is a clear and concise strategic planning tool. It enables teams to quickly develop plans to resolve issues, overcome challenges, and capture opportunities. 

Elyon’s proprietary method Kudoy is a versatile, yet simple, tool that offers situational awareness, key success factors, and reveals the strategic insight you need to achieve the perfect business outcomes. 

In 12 focused steps, you will develop an actionable and agile strategy plan to help achieve your vision.

Value Stream Canvas (VSC)

Providing a deeper dive into the Operating Model, Value Stream Mapping examines your existing processes. If your goal is to streamline and improve your key performance metrics then these processes are ideal for you.

They can be used to improve areas such as waste elimination, wait time reduction, and suboptimal workflows with redundant process steps. Elyon also offers strategic designs and migration (SDM) services, detailing how to migrate workloads to automation platforms.

The Elyon Strategies team has the experience needed to successfully migrate a specific application or an entire software portfolio using advanced robotics and synthetic intelligence.

SDM ensures that business motivation is directly supported by the perfect solution designs that result in an actionable backlog of well-planned activities.

Motivation Model Canvas (MMC)

This Canvas engages leadership in a Q&A session that develops the Motivation Model. It aligns mission with vision, strategies with business outcomes, and tactics with objectives. 

The exercise incorporates key performance indicators (KPIs) to influence the overall outcomes and lets us figure out exactly why you’re looking to improve or achieve your goals.

Enterprise Architecture as the Solution to the “Quick Fix”

We are living in wake of this side effect, an era of great enterprise debt. It is like a sea all around us. Our businesses show it, our local authorities show it, Wall Street shows it; our infrastructure paychecks, and children’s education show it.

Transformation Must be Architected

What if Google decided that today it was going to transform itself? What if they had been so influenced by a speaking engagement by Kevin Smith of PEAF or Carl Engel of Elyon that the executives had come to the conclusion that transformation was the answer to all their worries?

What is “the Enterprise” in the Mind of an EA?

With all the adamant touting on behalf of the business transformation tool commonly known as Enterprise Architecture (EA), it seems that the important word enterprise has, regrettably, been scantily defined.
