The Grove's partner in Amsterday, Patrick Van der Pijl, founder and CEO of Business Model, Inc., has knitted together the approaches represented by the four best-selling books shown below in a service offering clients are clamoring to use. He was on the core team that created Business Model Generation, now in 25 languages and selling over 500,000 worldwide. He combined that with The Grove's Strategic Visioning Graphic Guides and translated Visual Meetings into Dutch. Visual Meetings has been a best seller and is now in 15 languages. Business Model You applied business modeling to individuals. Finally Gamestorming is Dave Gray's reframing of faciitation practices as games. This too has been very well received. Click here to see a nice video BMI put together from a recent symposium in Holland describing the integration. The Grove will be partnering with BMI to offer Business Model Visualization workshop in the SF Bay Area in the new year.
Visual Leaders, the capstone book in the Visual Leadership Series John Wiley & Company has supported (of which Visual Meetings was the first), will be in the stores the first week in January. Help spread the word. If you are planning on buying the book on Amazon, do it January 7 to help us get the most visibility.
