The Business Model Canvas is a great tool to draft different business models for your business idea. It is an accompanying download to the Business Model Generation: A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers book by Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur. The only drawback is, that it's poster sized and not usable as a print out for your notebook.
For a more convenient use of the Business Model Canvas I made two smaller versions of the Business Model Canvas:
- one you can use as cheat sheet, that has the original comments with a more readable font (Droid Sans and Serif)
- one without comments, that you can use to draft you business models
