 The e3value methodology: Exploring innovative e-business ideas

The e3value methodology helps you to explore your innovative e-business idea - starting from understanding which enterprises and actors are actually involved, to an assessment of profitability for each enterprise.

As a methodology, e3value is a graphical approach: you can paint your business idea. Furthermore, e3value explicitly recognizes that most e-businesses are networks of enterprises.

Typically, you develop your e-business idea as an e3value model in a short timeframe; the methodology has been developed to be tractable and lightweight.

e3value example
Net value flow sheet

After you designed a graphical e3value model, you can check your model for business rules (e.g. that you get paid for each product you deliver), and you can generate value-flow sheets that are used to assess profitability (see left screen shot). Also, you will do sensitivity analysis to understand the strengths and weaknesses of your e-business idea.

Try the example on this page yourself by downloading our free tool support, and the example files below.
