Make sure to get up and move around!
When you come back, I need volunteers to move the tables around so we have 5-6 groupings in the classroom. (Depending on attendance)
Separate into groups so that we have 5-6 groups in the room. If everyone is here, that would be 5-6 students per group.
Using the large poster-sized version of the Business Model Canvas, work as a team to use the LEGO to complete each box. Yes, I've brought my son's LEGO from home. Yes, he's happy to share!
For this exercise, each team will use the assigned Product line that is new to all of you. Table 1 = Freeze-dried food packages, liked use for camping Table 2 = Kits to make a beaded brooch, created by local Indigenous artists Table 3 = Woodworking kits with wood for carving a small animal with carving tools and instructions, created by local Indigenous artists Table 4 = Exercise kit bag with a skipping rope and exercise band, branded with CapU logo Table 5 = Sound therapy kit with a tiny drum and 3 small bells in different tones and booklet, branded with CapU Music Therapy logo Table 6 = Clothing patch kit with 6 patches that can be ironed on clothing for decoration or repair, with images designed by CapU grads
There are many examples online of how to do this activity, for example https://www.slideshare.net/janalpeeters6105/business-model-canvas-lego-serious-play
Make sure to once again get up and move around!
When you come back, I need you to return the classroom to its
original arrangement. Then, please sit with your group members for the
Team part of the Library Research Assignment. Remember, maximum 3
students per Team!
Working with your Team of 3 or fewer students, you are now going to work on thinking through your product line more to be better prepared to complete your group's Business Model Canvas.
To get everyone in the group thinking along the same lines, we are going to focus particularly on the Value Proposition of the product line you are proposing. To do this, we need to do some Customer Experience design (aka CX).
Using the printed copies of the CX Deck, discuss a group what you want your customers to feel, think, and experience when choosing to buy your product. https://www.ridersandelephants.com/the-cx-deck-how-it-works
Make sure to take notes during this activity and take pictures at the end of your layout to consult later when working on your Business Model Canvas.
*If* your group finishes early, then you can start working on completing your Business Model Canvas.
