By Paul Hague (Author) Business frameworks sit at the heart of every successful business.
They add structure and clarity to business problems and can help practitioners overcome the everyday challenges they face.
The Business Models Handbook brings together the most helpful and widely used templates and frameworks into a single, invaluable resource. Each chapter focuses on an individual business framework, giving an overview of 50 of the best known frameworks and how it will help an organization grow and be profitable.
Each supported by a real-world case study, these include ANSOFF matrix, Price-Quality-Strategy model, Stage-Gate model, Service Profit Chain and many more.
Authored by a leading global market researcher with a background working on over 3,000 different research projects, The Business Models Handbook is an invaluable resource for any student or professional.
Online resources include lecture slides that align with each chapter Review “As strategy is all about three things – implementation, implementation, implementation – The Business Models Handbook is especially useful because it not only discusses the most important business models, but also provides practical guidance on how each model can be used.” (Rennie Gould, CEO, Customize UK Training) “As well as being an absolute must for any MBA student, this superbly well-chosen collection of tools and models will not only save the life of many a business executive with a challenging presentation to make, but might just make life a little better for their audiences into the bargain.

Now there is no excuse!” (Peter Cheverton, Director, INSIGHT Marketing and People Ltd) “Paul Hague has produced an excellent all-in-one handbook that covers a multitude of business models that are used every day by marketing professionals.
