I have found this series by Ed a thought provoking addition to the Lean Canvas originally developed by Ash Maurya (who built on earlier work by Alex Osterwalder). Ed treats the canvas as a model for an operating business. His re-addition of key activities from the original Business Model Canvas is particularly for bootstrappers who need to consider what they are going to do to make the business successful. I also think he brings a useful clarity to “unfair advantage” as something that is not easily replicated by competitors.
