 Drawings Template - Business Model Canvas By Ian Broom
Rating: 4.86 out of 5

A highly usable business model canvas with sticky notes based on and extended by: 1. grouping items so they are easier to drag around 2. adding text boxes so that you can type on the canvas, name, date, etc areas, or use sticky notes (they are quite large) - just double click on the sticky note or on a section of the canvas to add text 3. added text boxes to the sticky notes and reduced their size - drag then press 'ctrl' when you release to duplicate a sticky note 4. Added tips on how to use the sticky notes - delete them once you've read them 5. Tweaked the font sizes
