Tools for business structure, business process and business change

In this section you’ll find introductions to the most commonly applied models in the Tetradian toolkit.

  • Tetradian Model: an integrative, four dimensional architectural framework for depicting the behavioural, conceptual, relational and aspirational aspects of your organisation
  • Enterprise Canvas: a multi dimensional business planning tool that takes managers and entrepreneurs at least one step beyond the business model canvas.  Use this tool for describing and analysing organisational motivation, ecology, systems, structure and relationships
