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. 

Get the motivation you need with the motivation model canvas.


The perfect digital assistant to unlock your potential

Welcome to Elyon's cutting-edge AI empowered digital engineering platform: CADETsm. In the fast-paced world of enterprise assessments and analytics, precision and efficiency are paramount. That's why Elyon has dedicated its expertise to create CADET, a revolutionary platform that stands at the forefront of innovation.

CADET, short for Customized Application for Data-Driven Enterprise Transformation, is a true game-changer. It seamlessly combines expert knowledge, benchmark data sets, domain-specific language, and state-of-the-art AI technologies to craft tailored Narrow AI applications designed to elevate enterprise program management, enterprise architecture, portfolio management, and large Agile-based technology programs.

Our commitment to excellence extends across various sectors, including Healthcare, Manufacturing, System Integration, as well as federal and state departments. Within these domains, CADET instances and applications offer something truly exceptional: near real-time guidance for program leadership, portfolio managers, systems engineers, and oversight organizations throughout the entire engineering lifecycle.

The benefits of CADET are vast and transformative:

1. Increased Performance: CADET applications are your early warning system. They spot technical risks and potential performance issues at the very outset of your projects, SDLC, or engineering processes. This foresight empowers your teams to address risks proactively, preventing costly issues or failures down the line. This enhanced performance and evaluation capacity boost project reliability, overall effectiveness, and mission success.

2. Reduced Costs: CADET doesn't just save you time; it saves you money. With 24/7 processing capacity, it lifts the burden of repetitive analysis and knowledge management from your project and engineering staff. CADET's ability to identify operating model and technical risks early in the project lifecycle means you have ample time to implement corrective actions. This proactive approach slashes the likelihood of schedule disruptions, engineering rework, and corrections during testing, leading to substantial cost reductions.

3. Improved Resource Allocation: CADET isn't just about data; it's about insights. Its applications create a comprehensive enterprise knowledge base that informs estimation, workload recommendations, and team configuration requirements. By identifying the most effective and efficient use of digital, solution, and human resources, CADET optimizes your resource allocation.

4. Increased Transparency: CADET applications bring clarity to complexity. They perform thorough artifact reviews, ensuring processing accuracy and efficiency. This empowers enterprises to assess and recommend improvements for all initiatives, projects, and product development efforts. CADET's detailed analysis is also invaluable for stakeholder review, offering a deeper understanding of the technical risks and challenges inherent in each project. This, in turn, leads to better decision-making and more effective communication across project teams.

At Elyon, we believe in pushing the boundaries of what's possible in enterprise assessments and analytics. CADET is not just a platform; it's a transformational force, driving performance, reducing costs, optimizing resources, and enhancing transparency. Welcome to the future of enterprise management with Elyon's CADET.

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.
