Where to start? How to start?

How often does it happen that we have ideas and we take actions to make these ideas happen, but we miss the big picture. I believe having a simple and powerful framework to "structure your thoughts" is essentail for a start up.

I find this 15-mins long video by IDEO's Tom Hulme very helpful in creating a easy to remember, easy to pitch and talk about, yet powerful framework around structuring business ideas and visualizing them.

Nice video. Approaching your startup idea from such a framework really helps nailing down what your idea and startup are about.
It is a bit similar to the business model canvas developed by Alexander Osterwalder.
Wait, I'll post a video about this too

this was heavily inspired by the work of Alex Osterwalder, Gary Hamel and Michael Porter
