Adapting The DSE Framework For Your Business Model

The DSE Canvas is a framework designed to align with the four components found in all business models. It is recommended for startups and small to medium-sized businesses to systematically incorporate a variety of tools into an integrated platform, providing adaptable and scalable functionality. This approach enables you to incrementally develop your platform at a reasonable cost.

Startups and small to medium-sized businesses may discover that customizing a platform with an IT company can be costly, involving both initial production expenses and ongoing monthly maintenance costs. Over time, the platform may also require regular updates, influenced by operational insights, digital skill development, and changing market needs.

Furthermore, the primary challenge lies in integrating information systems with startup workflows. This integration needs to be gradual and interactive, aligning with the ‘build-measure-learn’ approach of Lean Startup. It necessitates flexible information systems in terms of functionality, scalability, and operation, rather than rigid, one-size-fits-all structures. Consequently, organizations must undergo a recognized process known as ‘digital transformation’ to align with information system frameworks.

We’ve designed the DSE framework as an open structure comprising numerous modular components, all harmoniously integrated into a versatile and reversible process. You have the autonomy to embrace the tenets of DSE, selecting these modules at your own pace while overseeing your team’s advancement in mastering and implementing these digital tools.
