Which brings us to Key Partners, or all of the external companies/parties/suppliers you need to achieve your Key Activities and deliver value to the customer. If you’re not able to achieve the value proposition alone, who else do you need to rely on to do it? These are the key partners that allow you to deliver whatever it is your customer needs.
…and you can’t have all those beautiful revenues without their ugly twin, costs. How much do all of these things cost? What are the costs of those key resources and partnerships? Legal costs?
Legal? Payrolls? Insurance?
Now take some time to connect the dots. Map connections from Propositions to Segments to Revenue Streams or Propositions to activities, resources, and costs. Each box does not stand alone. Stand back and discover the many ways in which all of these factors interact and influence each other. These connections may be simple or they may be incredibly complex. Either way, they provide insight into the nervous system of your business and how to keep it firing on all cylinders.
