How are YOU planning to reach your goals?
Approximately 50% of all small businesses fail within 5 years. Every business needs a working plan. A popular option is the Business Model Canvas. It's a methodology for startups and established businesses to plan their goals.
Hold on, how can I put a plan to use?
It's all well and good to plan how your business should work, but the problem is, how can you turn a plan into something actionable that you can continuously improve? Ignoring a plan is as bad as not having a plan.
Make it a real, living document. Here's how!
Cavy, A Concept Management Platform, is the system for working in your business and on your business at the same time. Here's how we do it.. we believe you can do it too. The following image is our Business Model Canvas in Cavy's "Related Topics" view.
You might not see it yet, but Related Topics are similar to a Mind Map, pioneered by Tony Buzan.
Where is the Mind Map?
You can't see a whole mind map, but you can see the current level. Each node (topic) has a parent, and each topic can have relations (the pinned topics in this case). You can use images and color topics, just like you can with a mind map. And like a mind map program, you have a content editor for a topic, but you also have live chat, issue tracking and change notification subscriptions for them too!
Wow! A knowledge and communication system that's like a Mind Map.
What makes mind mapping great for report creation, is now also great for business planning, support and customer success. Let's take a look how to link parts of the mind map (topics) to an issue in our issue tracker.
Each item in the Business Model Canvas can be actioned by pinning it to an issue or setting it as the issue or chat topic.

How does using Cavy lead to customer success? Read on!
Cavy completes the loop of customer success.
It does this by acting as a lightweight system for connecting your business ideas with your product planning, product documentation and customer communication. As your customer requirements change, your business model can be updated.
So it's for my whole business?
For your whole business. Your customers talk to you in the same system you plan your business with, where communication and ideas are grouped by topics. If you release a new feature or fix something that a customer is subscribed to, they'll be automatically notified by e-mail.
And it helps me to succeed?
Business and customer success is likely underpinned by balanced nonlinear and linear thinking. There is strong empirical evidence that managers and startup entrepreneurs with a balanced nonlinear and linear cognitive thought process are much more likely to succeed. Cavy empowers you to use balanced nonlinear (related topic grouping) and linear thinking (issue tracking & communication). It extends all the way from the planning of your business to your customer education and communication.
Using Cavy for your strategic plans will help you retain more customers, because they'll become directly involved in the planning of your business; improving customer retention and increasing customer success.
We made Cavy because we believe anyone can innovate, communicate and succeed. We want to help YOU do it better.
