Cyprus-based Open Box Communication acquires global certification

Open Box Communication is proud to announce a recently acquired global certification on the ground-breaking Business Model Generation framework by Alex Osterwalder.

The company is now one of a handful of globally certified trainers by the Strategyzer Academy, the makers of Business Model Generation.

Academics, entrepreneurs, and consultants around the world are putting aside widely used business planning techniques, to adopt Osterwalder’s Business Model Generation framework. The book has sold almost a million copies since its release in 2010 and the framework has received unprecedented amount of attention from the business community, which has found it to be a more practical and efficient way to develop, test, and improve their business models. It is a powerful strategic management and communication methodology for shaping your business models, rethinking strategy, and refocusing your value proposition. 

Paris Thomas, co-founder of Open Box Communication and corporate trainer, said: “The business model canvas is to business strategists what an excel spreadsheet is to financial analysts. This methodology is a powerful communication tool that allows business professionals to visualize their ideas, create a common language amongst them, and spot their assumptions early to test them, hence saving them time and money in the long-run. We truly believe in this methodology and this is why we couldn’t be happier to be in the elite of agencies that have adopted it and acquired this certification.” 

Alex Osterwalder, Lead Author of Business Model Generation and Co-Founder of Strategyzer stated, "I'm excited that Paris, one of our first certified Business Model Coaches by Strategyzer Academy, is bringing this methodology to Cyprus. Paris will help any business professional to become part of a new generation of global business leaders in SMEs, start-ups, and multinational companies that are using these powerful tools to change their business." 

Open Box Communication delivers training workshops for start-ups and large corporations worldwide, and is now planning a two-day public Master-class in Nicosia, Cyprus, on July 10th and 11th, 2014, open to business professionals interested in applying this innovative method in their workplace.
