Business Model – Noel Tagoe

“Business models are very important for organisations, because they show how an organisation makes money. An example is the financial crisis from 2008, from which the world is still recovering. It has been blamed on a failure of governance, failure of risk management, and the lack of knowledge of senior leaders in business models. If organisations don't understand their business models, they are likely to fail.”
